Singapore will likely allow quarantine-free travel to be fully immunized against Coronavirus from September. Tight restrictions could be eased for fully vaccinated residents before August 18, 2021.

According to the Singapore government, 80 percent of the city-state's population will be vaccinated by that time.

The senior minister said Singapore will facilitate international travel with countries that have successfully managed the Coronavirus situation to re-establish the city-state's status as a travel, business and talent hub.

However, according to reports, although the nation will open to all fully vaccinated tourists from September, the government will instead set up travel corridors with regions or countries where novel coronavirus infections is under control.

Lawrence Wong said Singapore would review a final decision on easing travel restrictions in early August. He said the easing would be differentiated and extended only to vaccinated individuals, as they are better protected from the effects of the virus. He said that if someone wants to work out in the gym or go out to eat out in the restaurant, then he too needs to be fully vaccinated.

It is advised that travellers should not go ahead and book a trip to Singapore. While the announcement assures a promising future of tourism in the country, it is still unclear whether India will be included in the list of quarantine-free travel when the September plan goes ahead.
