Singapore Removed From List Of ‘At Risk’ Countries For International Arrivals Into India

By Staff Correspondent

Singapore Airlines (SIA) announced that Singapore has been removed from the list of ‘At Risk’ countries for international arrivals into India. With this new development, passengers arriving into India from Singapore will no longer be subjected to additional arrival protocols specified for countries categorised as ‘At Risk’ by the Indian authorities. These additional protocols include a mandatory on-arrival RT-PCR test and seven days of home quarantine, with a follow-up RT-PCR test on day eight.

Instead, Singapore will now be classified with other countries Not ‘At Risk’. Passengers arriving from these countries can enjoy quarantine-free travel within India and will need to self-monitor their health for 14 days. In addition, a random sample of 2% of passengers travelling from Singapore will need to undergo RT-PCR testing on arrival at Indian Airports. On 29 November 2021, SIA restarted passenger services from 8 cities in India, including daily Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) services from Chennai, Delhi, and Mumbai, providing eligible customers with quarantine-free entry into Singapore.

The airline also operates non-VTL services from Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Kolkata, and Kochi. Customers on these flights must meet entry requirements into Singapore and will face prevailing health control measures, including seven days of quarantine in Singapore. Scoot, SIA’s low-cost subsidiary, operates non-VTL services from Amritsar, Hyderabad, and Tiruchirappalli. SIA has implemented various digital solutions for our customers’ well-being and supports a comfortable and seamless experience.
