Singapore has expanded the number of travel lanes for fully vaccinated people, opening the door for quarantine-free trips to some of the city-state’s most popular holiday destinations.
Fiji, Cambodia, Maldives, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Turkey will be added to the so-called vaccinated travel lane program from next month.
This is according to a statement by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore.
Visitors from Thailand will be able to enter from December 14 while those from the five other places can come from December 16.
Bloomberg.com reports Singapore will also increase its vaccinated travel lane quota to 15,000 travellers a day from 10,000.
With 85% of its population vaccinated, Singapore has been reopening its borders by allowing fully vaccinated people to enter and replacing mandatory quarantine with rigorous testing.
The island nation kicked off its vaccinated travel lane program in early September with Germany and Brunei and has since added about 20 countries to the list, including India, Malaysia and Indonesia.
