SINGAPORE: Given the revival of cases in Malaysia, Singapore will imposes quarantine and tighten border controls, the Republic of Ministry Health said today.
For those travellers who entering Singapore after midnight on Sunday (Nov 22) and have a travel history, including transit, within the past 14 days to Malaysia, will be force to obtain a 14-day stay-home notice to be served at dedicated facilities.
In addition, all travellers entering Singapore on November 27 from 11.59pm who have a travel history to Malaysia in the past 14 days will be allowed to take a test of Covid-19 polymerase chain reaction within 72 hours of departure.
However, under the Singapore-Malaysia RGL, an exception has been granted to Singapore Citizens (SCs) and Permanent Residents (PRs) or returning Singapore-based travellers, it said.
The quarantine order also applies to travellers entering Singapore to work under the Periodic Commuting Arrangement (PCA) and returning Singapore-based travellers under the Reciprocal Green Lane (RGL) Singapore-Malaysia, the ministry said.
The Ministry had previously announced that travellers from Malaysia, except travellers from Sabah, who are expected to serve a 14-day quarantine at dedicated facilities, are permitted to serve a seven-day home quarantine.
Moreover, as a condition of approval to enter Singapore, the ministry reminded travellers of the need for them to show a clear negative Covid-19 test result.
“For the return of Singapore-based travellers under the Singapore-Malaysia RGL, this requirement will not apply,” it said.
