Australia will open quarantine-free entry to fully vaccinated Singaporeans from 21 November.
Fully vaccinated Singaporeans will be able to travel to Australia and back without quarantine in either country from 21 November. The Singapore-Australia travel bubble announcement follows a meeting between Scott Morrison and the prime minister of Singapore, Lee Hsien Loong, on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Rome on Sunday.
Earlier in the week, Singapore had announced that fully vaccinated Australians will be able to enter the country without quarantining from 8 November. PM Morrison’s overnight announcement means that all Singaporeans would soon enjoy the same privilege for travel to and from some parts of Australia.
Singaporean tourists, students and workers can now travel to all Australian states which are open to quarantine-free international arrivals – starting with New South Wales and Victoria – provided they are fully-vaccinated and can present a negative result for a Covid-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the departure of their flight to Sydney or Melbourne.
In the week commencing 22 November, Qantas will resume flights from Sydney and Melbourne to Singapore.
PM Morrison also met Indonesian President Joko Widodo in Rome for discussions on similar quarantine-free travel arrangement between Australia and Bali, which is expected to begin in December.
Quarantine-free travel from New Zealand to Australia resumes from Monday.
