Beginning October 19, Singapore opens its borders to eight countries whose citizens will be able to enter the country and not be quarantined upon arrival. This applies to vaccinated residents of the U.K., U.S., France, Spain, Canada, Denmark, Italy, and the Netherlands. Beginning November 15, South Korea will be added to the list.

"These countries make significant investments in Singapore's economy, have a strong business presence, and large communities here. So it is important to reconnect with them as soon as possible," said Singapore's Transport Minister S. Iswaran.

In this regard, Singapore Airlines is expanding its destinations to 14 cities.

At first, it will be allowed to take 2,500 travelers a day. People who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons and children will not be allowed to enter Singapore under these conditions.

It is worth noting that there have been 3,000 new Coronavirus cases in Singapore since October 5. These are the highest numbers since the pandemic. At the same time, 81% of the population has been fully vaccinated.

Since September, Singapore has opened its borders to fully vaccinated travelers from Germany and Brunei. During this time, only 2 cases of Coronavirus have been detected in new arrivals. Tourists from China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan are also allowed to enter.
