Health declaration no longer needed at land checkpoints for Singapore's vaccinated and long term pass holders 73

Vaccinated Singapore residents and long-term pass holders arriving via land checkpoints will no longer be needed to make health declarations starting from 15 April.

Health declaration is made through online using the SG Arrival Card and has been initially obliged to all travelers before proceeding with immigration clearance since 27 March 2020.

The Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) is aware of the high volume of traffic at land checkpoints, and this requirement will be lifted to provide greater convenience for fully vaccinated residents and long-term pass holders arriving through these checkpoints, particularly those who commute across the border daily for work or studies.

Residents or long-term pass holders who have been vaccinated in Singapore must not have travelled to any restricted country or region in the previous seven days to qualify for the exemption.

Vaccination status must be documented in the TraceTogether or HealthHub smartphone applications for those who have been vaccinated in Singapore.

Those who have not been vaccinated in Singapore must submit their immunization records to the Ministry of Health (MOH) system upon arrival.

Before arriving in Singapore, those with a digital overseas vaccination certificate must submit it to the ICA’s Vaccination Check Portal.

Those who arrive with a non-digital overseas vaccination certificate or who are unable to submit it to the ICA must present it at the manual immigration counters.

However, the necessity to declare one’s health continues to apply to all passengers arriving by air or sea.
