Travellers from Myanmar will not be allowed entry into Singapore from 11.59pm on Thursday (15 July) until further notice due to the worsening COVID-19 situation there, said the Ministry of Health (MOH) on Wednesday (14 July).
In a statement, MOH noted that all long-term pass holders and short-term visitors with recent travel history to Myanmar, including transit, in the past 21 days will not be allowed to enter Singapore.
This will also apply to all those who had obtained prior approval for entry into the city-state, said the Ministry.
In addition, all travellers with recent travel history to Myanmar will also be subject to an on-arrival Antigen Rapid Test (ART).
MOH added that travellers with recent travel history to Myanmar who have yet to complete their 14-day stay-home notice (SHN) by 11.59pm on Thursday will remain to be subjected to 14-day SHN at dedicated facilities, and take a Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test upon arrival.
“As the global situation evolves, we will continue to adjust our border measures to manage the risk of importation and transmission to the community with changes updated on the SafeTravel website.
“The Ministry of Health will also continue to review the data and evidence on any new viral strains and update the measures accordingly,” it stated.
