Travel Restrictions imposed by the Singapore Government for Visitors from Iran, Northern Italy and the Republic of Korea to Singapore due to COVID-19 Outbreak
In view of the surge in the number of confirmed cases around the world, the Singapore authorities imposed further travel ban on visitors entering Singapore, in particular, from Iran, Northern Italy and the Republic of Korea.
All new visitors with recent travel history to Iran, northern Italy or the Republic of Korea within the last 14 days will not be allowed entry into Singapore, or transit through Singapore. With immediate effect, the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) will suspend the issuance of all forms of new visas to those with Iranian passports. Previously issued short-term and multiple-visit visas for those with Iranian passports will also be suspended. During this period of suspension, they will not be allowed entry into Singapore.
From 4 March 2020, 2359 hours, the following returning groups will be issued with a Stay-Home Notice (SHN):
- Residents (Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents) with recent travel history to Iran, Northern Italy, or the Republic of Korea within the last 14 days; and
- Long-term pass holders (including work passes, Student’s Pass, Dependant’s Pass and Long-term Visit Pass) with recent travel history to Iran, northern Italy or the Republic of Korea within the last 14 days.
Under the SHN, they will have to remain in their place of residence at all times for a 14-day period after returning to Singapore. The above applies to all travellers who intend to travel to Bintan via Singapore.
