Singapore removed most remaining COVID-19 restrictions on April 26, easing its entry requirements for travelers, according to its health ministry.
According to Reuters, the measures include removing limits on group sizes and allowing the full return of employees to workplaces, while lowering the Southeast Asian financial hub’s alert level for the first time since the pandemic started.
Moreover, the authorities announced the scrapping of a requirement for vaccinated travelers to take a COVID test before departing for Singapore.
With these changes, we can now have a well-deserved breather, after two very difficult years of fighting the virus. But let’s always remember, we are getting closer to the finish line, but the race is not over and the pandemic is certainly not over
said Lawrence Wong, finance minister and co-chair of the government’s coronavirus taskforce.
