Transiting in Singapore? Read this important announcement


Are you one of those lucky passengers who availed of the cheaper airfare via Dubai to the Philippines through Singapore Airlines? 

If you are, then you’re most likely transiting to Singapore–perhaps with at least a six-hour layover. 

In a message sent to The Global Filipino Magazine, it noted that transiting passengers must be fully-vaccinated against Covid-19 with World Health Organization (WHO) approved vaccine, 14 days prior to arrival to Singapore. 

Children aged 12 years old and below are exempted.

Transiting passengers need a negative PCR test within 48 hours of departure from point of origin. 

“Passengers travelling on  Vaccinated Travel Lane flights are allowed to transit through Singapore if they are fully vaccinated against Covid-19, hold a valid vaccination certificate in English issued by any country, and meet all entry requirements for their destination country,” a message read on their website. 

“These requirements may also apply to transit passengers on non-VTL flights, depending on the destination country,” it added.
