From 10 August 2021, the Ministry of Manpower will resume entry approvals for fully vaccinated work pass holders and their dependants with travel history to higher risk countries/ regions. Eligible work pass holders and their dependants are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after having received the full regimen of Pfizer-BioNTech/ Comirnaty, Moderna or World Health Organization’s Emergency Use Listing (WHO EUL) vaccines.
The vaccination condition for entry will not apply to dependants aged below 12 years old and, under certain condition, to dependants aged between 12 to less than 18 years old. Work pass holders and dependants who are medically ineligible for vaccination should appeal to be exempted from the vaccination condition for entry, supported by a doctor’s memo, before applying for entry approval.
From 21 August 2021, all fully vaccinated travellers from Australia, Austria, Canada, Germany, Italy, Norway, the Republic of Korea (ROK), Switzerland, Brunei Darussalam, Hong Kong, Macao, Mainland China, New Zealand and Taiwan may apply to opt out of dedicated SHN facilities and serve their 14-day SHN at their respective places of residence or other suitable accommodation, if certain criteria are met.
