S'pore announces tighter Covid-19 measures for travellers from Vietnam

SINGAPORE – Tighter measures have been announced for travellers from Vietnam amid an increase in the number of Covid-19 cases there.

All travellers entering Singapore who have a travel history in the past 21 days to Vietnam, will be required to serve a 21-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN) at dedicated facilities.

Before this, they also had to serve 21 days but the last seven days could be done at a place of residence or self-sourced accommodation.

The Ministry of Health (MOH) said on Thursday (May 13) that the tighter measures will apply to travellers who have not completed their 14-day SHN at dedicated facilities, by Saturday, 2359 hours.

These travellers will be contacted regarding the additional costs to be paid.

Travellers who are currently serving their SHN at a place of residence or self-sourced accommodation will be required to complete the 21 days at their current location to minimise movement and risk of transmission.

MOH added that they will have to do Covid-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests on arrival, on day 14 of their SHN and before the end of their SHN period.
