Eases measures

Singapore eases measures and allows some trips.

Singapore’s government eases border measures and from next September 1 will allow travel to Brunei and New Zealand.

From September 1, Singapore eases its measures and will allow general trips to Brunei and New Zealand, including those students studying abroad.

Likewise, Singapore relaxes its controls, so visitors from Brunei or New Zealand, who have stayed in the country for 14 days before their visit, don’t have to deliver a stay-at-home notice when arriving Singapore.

Instead, they will undergo a Covid-19 test in the airport, and will be allowed to continue their activities in Singapore after receiving a negative result.

About eases students’ permission

Minister Lawrence Wong said “Many foreign institutions are resuming terms and we know there are Singaporean students that have to go back to class”.

Wong also noted that the Covid-19 situation remains highly fluid and that Singapore eases its border control measures based on its constant evaluation of data.
