In view of the heightened risk of importation of COVID-19 cases into Singapore, Singapore has implemented measures for all travellers coming into Singapore.

No entry or transit through Singapore for all short-term visitors, with limited entry for work pass holders

From 23 March 2020, 2359 hours, all short-term visitors (from anywhere in the world) will not be allowed to enter or transit through Singapore. The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) will only allow the entry/return of work pass holders, including their dependents, for those providing essential services, such as in healthcare and transport. This is subject to them obtaining the MOM's approval before they commence their journey to Singapore. However, Malaysians with Singapore work permits will continue to be able to work in Singapore during this period, with appropriate accommodation arrangements, as agreed by the Singapore-Malaysia Special Working Committee.
