Hundreds have received the green light to enter Singapore under a new travel scheme for fully vaccinated visitors which will see travellers exempted from quarantine upon arrival in the city-state.
Singapore’s quarantine-free entry, which begins next week, is limited to vaccinated visitors from Germany and Brunei.
Instead of quarantining, the travellers will be subject to Covid-19 tests and placed on designated flights.
According to Singapore’s The Straits Times, the majority of those who have received travel passes under the Vaccinated Travel Lane scheme come from Germany, with 735 given permission to enter the island republic.
Another 20 from Brunei have also been given the thumbs up.
According to the report, the travellers intend to fly to Singapore between Sept 8 and Oct 7.
Singapore has fully vaccinated about 80% of its population, allowing it to begin easing restrictions.
The regional travel hub, which has about 5.7 million residents, is one of the first countries in Southeast Asia to reopen.
