‘Vaccinated Travel Lane‘ from Germany to Singapore  enhances possibilities for quarantine-free travel

Singapore has announced the establishment of a ‚Vaccinated Travel Lane‘ (VTL) for travellers from Singapore to Germany. Fully vaccinated persons can apply for any travel purpose for travel on designated direct non-stop flights from various airports in Germany and enter Singapore without quarantine-requirements. The Stay-Home-Notice will be replaced by PCR-testing prior and after travel. For details on the conditions to be met (including a 14-day-stay in Germany and/or Singapore prior to travel) application procedure and implementation, please visit the Safe Travel Website .

We welcome this decision by the Singaporean government as it is a significant step towards normalisation of international travel.

For travels to Germany, please be advised of the following: Singapore is currently considered as high-risk-area. Nevertheless fully vaccinated persons can travel quarantine-free to Germany. All travellers arriving in Germany have the obligation to furnish proof of vaccination or recovery from COVID-19 or a test certificate (antigen test: taken max. 48 hours, PCR test: taken max. 72 hours before entry). This only applies to travellers aged twelve years or older. The Singaporean digital vaccination certificate and the physical vaccination card are suitable to furnish this proof.

After entering Germany from a high-risk area, unvaccinated children under the age of 12 must isolate at home (quarantine) for 5 days. Quarantine automatically ends at the end of the 5th day following entry into Germany without a test requirement.

Measures for fighting the spread of COVID-19 in Germany are subject to local regulation. The following website offers an overview of local regulations. Travellers should consult the website of the competent authorities at their travel destination:
