Mandatory Safety Measures for Inbound and Outbound Passengers 

All passengers arriving in and departing from Singapore are required to wear a mask and observe safe distancing measures throughout their flight. All passengers on flights to Singapore will also be required to undergo a verbal health declaration and temperature checks before boarding the aircraft at the point of origin.
 

Screening of Inbound Passengers

Passengers on all arrival flights at Changi Airport are subject to temperature screening. Healthcare teams will be at the aerobridges for selected flights to identify passengers who look unwell because fever may not be present for all cases. Those who meet the clinical suspect case definition will be conveyed to the hospital for follow-up. MOH points out that the Infectious Diseases Act (IDA) requires a person who has reason to suspect that he is a case or carrier of Covid-19, or a contact of a person with Covid-19, to act in a responsible manner so as to not expose other persons to the risk of infection by the disease.

Upon arrival in Singapore, passengers must undergo a Covid-19 Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test at the airport. To expedite the Covid-19 PCR test at the airport, visitors are strongly encouraged to pre-book and make payment here. The test results will be out within 48 hours. After taking the Covid-19 PCR test, passengers are to take private transportation, taxi, or private hire car from the airport to their declared place of accommodation. They must remain isolated at the accommodation until the test result is confirmed to be negative. After being notified of their negative test results, passengers will be allowed to go about their activities in Singapore.
