1. Qualifying as a Transit Traveller
Transit travellers are defined as those travelling to another country via Singapore, without clearing Singapore arrival immigration. Such transit travellers do not need proof of vaccination, COVID-19 tests, travel visas or entry approvals.
Travellers who intend to clear arrival immigration to enter Singapore, or booked flights which require them to enter Singapore to collect tickets or baggage and check-in again for the connecting flight, are not considered transit travellers. Several Low Cost Carriers require travellers to clear immigration to collect their onward connecting tickets in the Departure Check-In hall. Such travellers should ensure that they fulfil all public health and entry requirements found on the “Entering Singapore” page.
If unsure, travellers connecting through Singapore should consult their airline on whether they need to go through immigration, or if they can remain in the transit area to connect to their next flight.
