Singapore and Brunei have agreed to resume flights between their two countries.

But not everyone can fly.

A joint statement yesterday said:

“Both sides have agreed on an arrangement to allow the safe resumption of cross-border movement of a limited number of people, with the necessary safeguards in place to ensure that public health concerns of both sides are addressed.”

To qualify for a flight, travellers from Singapore and Brunei must have remained in their respective countries for at least 14 days before departure, and they must take a Covid-19 test at least once, 72 hours before the flight.

There will be other stringent requirements for flyers to meet, according to Channel NewsAsia. These will be announced.

Singapore is working on green lane travel arrangements with several countries. It is in talks to resume essential business travel with Japan, with officials hoping to finalise an agreement soon.

It has also said it will begin discussions on a reciprocal green lane with Indonesia.

New Zealand is also in line for a resumption of flights between Auckland and Singapore.

At the end of August, the Singapore health ministry issued advice to travellers who may be hoping to travel in one of these green lanes.

“When overseas, travellers should take all necessary precautions, observe good personal hygiene, monitor local developments, and heed the advice of local authorities.”

Health Minister Gan Kim Yong urged those who are intending to travel to plan ahead.

“Don’t just expect to hop on the plane and go. Please check what are the requirements of the destination countries, make sure that you comply with the requirements before you fly over.

“At the same time when you’re there, continue to exercise vigilance, continue to exercise safe distancing, and also observe the safe distancing rules in those countries, so that you protect yourself and protect others.”
