Singapore will allow fully vaccinated US travelers to enter the country beginning Oct. 19. The country’s Ministry of Transport announced plans to expand its vaccinated travel lanes, or VTLs, to eight more countries, including the US, allowing visitors to enter without a quarantine period. The country initially opened travel lanes to two countries, Brunei and Germany, on Sept. 8. Singapore officials labeled the travel lanes a success after only two of the more than 3,100 travelers who entered Singapore from the two countries brought in COVID-19 cases. Both cases were identified through PCR tests, and the travelers were isolated and had no interaction with the community, according to Transport Minister S. Iswaran. “We have monitored the VTL scheme closely and are encouraged by the outcomes,” Iswaran said. Starting Oct. 19, travelers from the US can enter Singapore as long as they show proof of vaccination and test negative through a PCR test twice: once 48 hours before departure and again upon arrival. Travelers must also show they have been only in a VTL-approved country in the 14 days prior to departure.
