Since September 8, 2021, Singapore has implemented the Vaccinated Travel Line (VTL) for Brunei and Germany. The VTL policy states that when travellers meet certain conditions, they do not have to quarantine for two weeks after entering Singapore. Instead, they can go about their activities freely. This greatly saves the traveller's time and cost.
At present, the VTL for these two countries has been implemented for one month. The Singapore government decided to extend the scope of VTL countries, adding 6 European countries (Denmark, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, and the United Kingdom), Canada, the United States and South Korea to the list to expand the number of people who can travel to Singapore without quarantine.
VTL starts for travelers from different countries as following dates
|Countries/ Regions||Valid Date|
|Brunei, Germany||Already Valid|
|Denmark, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, |
the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States
|From October 19, 2021|

However, not all tourists from the above countries can enjoy VTL and quarantine-free journey, travellers must meet the following conditions:
1. Fly to Singapore on VTL Flights
Quarantine-free entry is only valid for passengers taking VTL flights from VTL countries. The VTL flights operated within each VTL country are different.
