With effect from 7th May 2021, 11:59pm the stay-home notice (SHN) period will be lengthened to 21 days, up from 14 days for travellers arriving from all countries and regions, except for:
Travellers serving the 21-day SHN will undergo polymerase chain reaction tests on arrival on Day 14 of their SHN, and another test before the end of their 21-day SHN period.
All travellers with recent travel history to higher-risk countries and regions must serve a 21-day SHN at dedicated facilities inclusive of those who are currently serving a 14-day SHN and have yet to complete their SHN by Friday must serve an additional seven days at their current SHN location.
Travellers from Fiji & Vietnam
Travellers who have stayed in Fiji and Vietnam in the last 14 days before arrival in Singapore were previously allowed to opt out of serving 14-day SHN at dedicated SHN facilities.
However, from 7th May 2021 travellers who have stayed in these countries for 21 consecutive days will be subjected to the 21-day SHN at dedicated SHN facilities, with the option to serve the last seven days at their place of residence.
Those who have yet to complete their 14-day SHN by Friday can complete their remaining 14-day SHN at their current SHN location, and request to serve their additional seven days at their place of residence.
Travellers travelling from Britain, South Africa, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka
Travellers from Britain, South Africa, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka who are currently required to serve 21-day SHN will be required to serve the full duration of the SHN at dedicated SHN facilities. For those who have yet to complete their 21-day SHN by Friday will have to complete their 21-day SHN at their current SHN location to minimise movement and risk of transmission.
Separately the period of recent travel history being assessed for border measures will also be increased to 21 days from 14 with effect from 7th May 2021, 11:59pm . This excludes bilaterally negotiated travel lanes, such as the reciprocal green lane or air travel bubble arrangements.
