Additional Post-Arrival Days 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7 Antigen Test (ART) in Singapore for All Singapore VTL Passengers

Additional Post-Arrival Days 2, 4, 5 & 6 self-administered Antigen Rapid Test (ART) in Singapore for all Singapore VTL Travellers

All VTL travellers entering Singapore on both air and land vaccinated travel lanes (VTL) will be put on a daily COVID-19 testing regime over 7 days using antigen rapid tests (ARTs) from 11.59pm on 6 December 2021. Alongside the previously announced Days 3 and 7 tests at a combined test centre (CTC) or quick test centre (QTC), this means 4 new tests on Days 2, 4, 5, and 6.

This new enhanced protocol will also apply to travellers arriving from Malaysia by bus via the land VTL from 11.59pm on 6 December 2021.

The Days 2, 4, 5, and 6 ART tests are all self-administered using an ART kit they had purchased in Singapore. Do not buy an RTK kit in Malaysia for these Singapore tests. All ART results must be submitted online via a link provided in the testing notice. Travellers may only leave their accommodations and continue with their activities if they are tested ART negative.

As a recap, the new Days 3 and 7 ART tests from 3 December 2021 are done at a combined test centre (CTC) or quick test centre (QTC). Details here.

Here’s a summary of the COVID-19 7-day testing schedule in Singapore for all VTL travellers:

VTL (Air) – Flight 🛬 Price VTL (Land) – Bus 🚌 Price

This new enhanced protocol will also apply to travellers arriving from Malaysia via the land VTL (-Malaysia-Singapore VTL Bus) from 11.59pm on 6 December 2021.

These tighter measures are in response to the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus.
