The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) announced on Friday that border restrictions on visitors from Taiwan will be lifted from Dec. 18.
根據新加坡民航局公告，下週五起，台灣旅客只要申請航空通行證(Air Travel Pass)，即可入境新加坡，然而旅客在起飛出發前必須在台灣待連續14天才符合免隔離資格。
According to a news release from CAAS, travelers can enter Singapore by applying for a single-entry Air Travel Pass starting next Friday; however, they must have stayed in Taiwan for 14 consecutive days before departure.
入境新加坡後，旅客必須接受新冠病毒PCR核酸檢測 (COVID-19 Polymerase Chain Reaction)，若結果呈陰性即可在新加坡自由活動，免居家隔離。
Upon arrival in Singapore, visitors will undergo a COVID-19 PCR Test (Polymerase Chain Reaction) and if the result is negative, they will be allowed to move around in Singapore without serving a home quarantine.
Before entering Singapore, however, Taiwan travelers must download the TraceTogether app on their mobile phones and keep the app activated during their stay in Singapore.
Besides, the app cannot be deleted within 14 days of departure from Singapore and they must be responsible for all COVID-19 medical-related bills while in Singapore, said CAAS.
Singapore’s Transport Minister Ong Ye Kung told CNA that Taiwan is a “very safe partner to do a unilateral opening” with.
Ong Ye Kung said that a few weeks ago Taiwan unilaterally reduced the quarantine period for essential business travelers from Singapore to just five days.
“That is the most relaxed rule they have imposed on any traveler and which they accorded Singapore as the lowest risk country,” said Ong.
