Singapore will consider relaxing travel restrictions for people that are vaccinated against Covid-19, the co-head of the government’s virus taskforce said on Monday.
The Southeast Asian travel hub has largely banned leisure travel, and has some limited business and official travel agreements with certain countries. Most returning residents need to isolate in designated hotels or reception for up to 2 weeks.
“There are several ongoing studies on the effectiveness of vaccines in reducing transmission risk, and that we are monitoring these very carefully,” Lawrence Wong said in parliament.
“If there’s clear evidence that transmission risks are often lowered significantly, we’ll certainly consider some relaxation to the SHN (stay home notice) regime for vaccinated travellers.”
