Singapore suspends sales of ‘no quarantine’ tickets due to spread of Omicron


Singapore is suspending sales of air and bus tickets for unquarantine entry to those who have been vaccinated for four weeks to prevent the spread of ‘Omicron’, a new variant of COVID-19.

According to Reuters on the 22nd, the Singapore government announced that the measures would be taken for four weeks from the next day.

Singapore is currently implementing non-quarantine entry to 24 countries, including Korea, Australia, India, Malaysia, the United States, and the United Kingdom, as well as those who have been vaccinated.

However, as concerns about the spread of Omicron mutations have grown recently, we have decided to suspend the sale of air and bus tickets until the 20th of next month.

After that, we plan to drastically reduce the number of people who are not quarantined and the number of tickets issued.

In the case of air tickets, the number of tickets issued will be reduced to less than half, health officials said.

However, travelers who have already purchased air and bus tickets can enter the country without quarantine.

However, they must refrain from large gatherings or eating out for 7 days after entering the country and must be screened daily.
