Stringent COVID-19 test requirements for travellers from India

Share This:

COVID-19 test requirements for selected travellers from India will be stringent.

There are two levels of checks for the negative Covid-19 test results needed for entry into Singapore — at the airport in India prior to boarding and at arrival immigration in Singapore.

The pre-departure COVID-19 test results must come from laboratories that are “internationally accredited or recognised by the Indian Government”, MOH said.

This pre-departure test applies to travellers who are not Singapore citizens or permanent residents.

Travellers who are allowed entry must also serve a 14-day stay--notice at a dedicated facility.

Mandatory Serological Test

In addition, they will also be required to do a serological test during the 14-day period.

Serological look for antibodies in blood samples. The presence of antibodies will indicate if a person had previously been infected with Covid-19.

Depending on their serological test results, travellers may also be required to undergo a COVID-19 swab test before the 14-day is over.

“Travellers found without the required valid documents will be refused entry into Singapore,” MOH said.

Those who present forged documents to seek entry into Singapore could be barred from entering the country in the future.
