The Ministry of Health Singapore announced on 23 October that the country will be reopening its borders to more countries including Malaysia, Cambodia, Egypt, Hungary, Indonesia, Israel, Mongolia, Qatar, Rwanda, Samoa, Seychelles, South Africa, Tonga, the United Arab Emirates, and Vietnam which are now under Category III measures.
According to CNA, starting from 11.59pm on 26 October, Malaysians will be able to serve just 10 days of quarantine at a place where they have declared to be staying while in Singapore, regardless of their vaccination status or travel history of themselves and household members.
Tourists from Malaysia will not need to undergo an on-arrival Polymerase Chain Reaction test (PCR), but they will need to take an exit PCR test at the end of their stay-home notice. Meanwhile, Malaysians will also no longer need to take the Antigen Rapid Test on the third and seventh day of their arrival during their stay-home notice period.
This will benefit those who are planning to go to Singapore soon, especially for work. However, if you do travel over to Singapore, make sure to still stick to the necessary measures to keep everyone safe and prevent the virus from spreading.
