Approved travellers on new Singapore-China 'fast lane' need not serve quarantine but must do Covid-19 swab tests

Jun 03, 2020 | 🚀 Fathership
Under the Singapore-China "Fast lane" agreement, which will start next Monday, travellers on both sides will be exempt from rules that require everyone else to serve quarantine periods of up to 14 days, the Singapore Government said on Wednesday.

Travellers from China must do a Covid-19 swab test 48 hours before departure, and another swab test when they land at Changi Airport.

Similar rules will apply to Singapore travellers going to China.

MFA and MTI added that Singapore citizens, permanent residents and long-term pass holders returning to Singapore from China must monitor their health and comply with the prevailing health measures.

Currently, China is allowing each Singapore carrier to fly only to one city in China once a week.
