Mumbai-Singapore COVID-19 travel guidelines under VTL scheme
The passenger must be fully vaccinated and submit two negative COVID-19 test results – one within 48 hours of journey prior to boarding flight and another on arrival PCR test in Singapore. Children of two and below ages are exempted from the tests. The passenger has to undergo self-quarantine until the result of the PCR test arrives.
Passengers who plan to visit Singapore availing VTL flights must apply for a VTP (VTL pass) and can apply for a visa only after the approval of VTP. They should carry their passport, digital proof of vaccination and an address in Singapore where they will remain in self-quarantine.
The Government also insists on purchasing travel insurance with a minimum coverage of SGD 30,000 (USD 22,000) for COVID-19 related medical treatment and hospitalisation costs. The passengers have to use Singapore’s contact tracing mobile app TraceTogether.
