Government of Singapore has ended the requirement of compulsory travel insurance for fully vaccinated short-term visitors entering Singapore with effect from Friday, 1 April.

Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) said that insurance was previously mandatory for all passengers traveling to Singapore from countries or territories included in the health ministry's general travel category by air, land or sea.

Travelers are considered to be fully immunized if they have received a full set of COVID-19 vaccines on the World Health Organization's Emergency Use List at least two weeks prior to arrival in Singapore, and have completed the minimum dose interval period

Children under the age of 12 who have not been fully vaccinated are allowed to enter Singapore under the same conditions as fully vaccinated adults.

Previously, short-term visitors to Singapore were required to purchase travel insurance to help cover the cost of medical care if they were suspected of being infected with COVID-19 or in need of COVID-19 treatment.

A minimum of $30,000 was required in coverage, which can be obtained from insurance companies based in Singapore or overseas.
