Dubai to Singapore travel requirements

As per Singapore’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs website, the latest travel guidelines issued by the government according to the COVID-19 Vaccinated Travel Framework stipulate different entry requirements for fully vaccinated and non-vaccinated travellers.

Fully vaccinated travellers 

To be considered to be fully vaccinated, travellers from Dubai must:

  • Be fully vaccinated with WHO EUL vaccines if born in or before 2009 (i.e. aged 13 and above by year of birth) – “Fully vaccinated” means at least one dose of:
    • Janssen/J&J, or
    • at least 2 doses of AstraZeneca, Covaxin, Moderna/Spikevax, or Covishield administered at least 24 days apart, or
    • Novavax, Pfizer/BioNTech/COMIRNATY, Sinopharm administered at least 17 days apart, or
    • Mixtures of any two doses of vaccines listed above, administered at least 17 days apart and vaccination with recovery is also acceptable 
  • Be vaccinated against Yellow Fever if you have visited Yellow Fever high-risk countries/regions in Africa and Latin America -a valid Yellow Fever vaccination certificate is required.

Children born in or after 2010 (i.e. aged 12 and below by year of birth) can enter Singapore following the rules mentioned for fully vaccinated travellers regardless of their COVID-19 vaccination status. 

Entry requirements 

All vaccinated travellers entering the country must:

  • Prepare proof of vaccination
  • Obtain additional entry documents (if required) such as visa
  • Passport with at least 6 months validity 
  • Complete your SG Arrival Card (SGAC) up to 3 days before your arrival in Singapore.

Testing and quarantine requirements 

There are no quarantine or COVID-19 testing measures for fully vaccinated travellers and travellers aged 12 and below. However, you must comply with the latest public health measures. This includes the use of the TraceTogether mobile application for contact tracing and to show proof of vaccination in Vaccination-Differentiated settings (VDS).

Non vaccinated travellers 

Travellers who do not meet the vaccination requirements above are considered non-fully vaccinated travellers and will be subject to entry approvals, tests and quarantine. This includes travellers who:

  1. Are born in or before 2009 (i.e. age 13 and above by year of birth)
  2. Are medically exempted from COVID-19 vaccination
  3. Took non-WHO EUL vaccines and/or did not complete the full dosage of WHO EUL COVID-19 vaccines
  4. Recovered from COVID-19 but did not complete the minimum dosage of WHO EUL COVID-19 vaccines

Generally, non-fully vaccinated long-term pass holders and short-term visitors are not allowed to enter Singapore unless in exceptional circumstances.

Entry requirements 

All unvaccinated travellers entering the country must have obtained entry approval. Entry approval is not required if you are a:
  1. Singapore Citizen or Permanent Resident
  2. Long-Term Pass holder, including In-Principle Approval holders, born between 2005 and 2010 (inclusive), and arriving before 1 July 2022 only. Entries from 1 Jul 2022 will require entry approvals.

  • Obtain additional entry documents (if required) such as visa
  • Have a passport with at least 6 months validity 
  • Complete your SG Arrival Card (SGAC) up to 3 days before your arrival in Singapore.

Testing and quarantine requirements 

A pre-departure test is not required if you tested positive for COVID-19 between 14 to 90 days before your date of departure for Singapore. Use this tool to check if the pre-departure test can be waived, and the documentation required to prove your first infection or recovery.

Otherwise, take any of the following COVID-19 tests within 2 days before departure:

    2. [Singapore Citizens, PRs and Long-Term Pass Holders (including In-Principle Approval holders) only] Self-administered Antigen Rapid Test (ART) remotely supervised by an approved ART provider in Singapore.

Ask for a non-handwritten PDT report that is in English (or accompanied by a notarized English translation) with the following details:

  1. Traveller’s name, and Date of Birth or Passport number (per the passport used to travel to Singapore); and
  2. Reflects the date and result of the COVID-19 test.

You will be placed on a 7-day Stay Home Notice (SHN) upon arrival. During this period, you will remain in your declared SHN accommodation for the full 7 days.
