Singapore requires travelers from New Zealand to complete a 7-day Stay-Home-Notice (SHN) upon arrival.
The Singapore government’s Multi-Ministry Taskforce regularly evaluates the global pandemic situation, updating the country’s border measures to prevent the increased spread of COVID-19.
From August 30, 2021, the following measures are in place:
- Singapore citizens, permanent residents, and long-term pass holders entering Singapore with travel history to New Zealand, within the last 21 days before departure for Singapore, will be subject to an on-arrival COVID-19 PCR test and must complete a 7-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN) at their place of residence, followed by another COVID-19 PCR test before the end of the SHN period.
- Short-term travelers with an Air Travel Pass (ATP) with travel history to New Zealand, within the last 21 days before departure for Singapore, will not be allowed to enter Singapore.
From August 30, New Zealand will be classified as a Category II region.
Singapore has maintained strict travel restrictions to stop the spread of COVID-19 and has also had a successful vaccination campaign reaching nearly 80% of the population.
