From August 29, Singapore opens its borders to all foreign tourists, lifting the current entry rule, according to which only tourists vaccinated with drugs approved by WHO. About
Another interesting foreign destination for recreation will become available to Russian tourists this month. The Singapore authorities have decided to significantly simplify the conditions of entry. From August 29, not only vaccinated tourists, but also tourists without a vaccine will be allowed to come to Singapore. About
But among the innovations is the cancellation of quarantine for tourists without a vaccine.
The cancellation of quarantine for tourists without a vaccine is also said on the website of the Singapore Ministry healthcare.
The abolition of the mandatory vaccination requirement for entry into Singapore for Russian tourists actually means opening the country for recreation.
From August 29, the condition for entry into the country for tourists without a vaccine will be a negative PCR test, made 48 hours before entry and printed in English.
A certificate will still suffice for vaccinated tourists.
Those who plan to stay in Singapore for more than three days will need to apply for a tourist visa. If the stay in the country does not exceed 96 hours, when transiting to other countries, you do not need to apply for a visa.
In addition, amid the normalization of the situation with coronavirus in Singapore, they decided to cancel the requirement to wear masks indoors, also from 29 August. It has been in place for the past two years.
Masks will still be required on public transport and in high-risk areas, including medical facilities.
Experts say that before the pandemic, tourists mainly used Singapore as a transit destination. Combined tours Singapore+Malaysia, Singapore+Indonesia, Singapore+Australia and so on were also in demand.
Of course, there were tourists who chose Singapore as their own destination. This incredible city-state has everything you need to provide tourists with a good rest. These are beaches (Sentosa Island), gastronomy, and shopping. The cultural component of Singapore also deserves attention. If the news about the lifting of restrictions is confirmed, then Russian tourists are more likely to go to Singapore, says Yulia Frundina, head of the Southeast Asia department at Quinta Tour.
Singapore has every chance of attracting more tourists than before the pandemic. PAKS tour operator experts remind that interesting tourist novelties have recently appeared in Singapore, and a new beach area will appear on Sentosa in 2023. Singapore is also a great place to feel like in the future and plunge into the mysterious past.
There are no direct flights from Russia to Singapore. Singapore Airlines announced a temporary suspension of flights on the Moscow-Singapore route back in February 2022. You can get there by connecting flights, for example, through Dubai (the fare is 52.8 thousand rubles per person one way).
