Singapore Welcomes Back Americans, But CDC Say It’s a High Risk Destination

Singapore, one of the most popular tourist destinations in Southeast Asia, reopened its borders on October 19 to fully vaccinated travelers from eight countries, including United States.

But while there’s no quarantine requirement for Americans, there will be several requirements before entering Singapore.

Travelers visiting Singapore must be fully vaccinated with an approved vaccine, have spent the past 14 days in one of the approved countries. They must also show proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 48 hours of their departure, arrive on a designated vaccinated travel lane (VTL) flight, and fill out an SG Arrival Card within three days of their arrival. There’s more. Travelers also need to pre-pay for an arrival test and isolate until they receive a negative result. Short-term travelers must obtain travel insurance.

However, the U.S. State Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says you shouldn’t visit anyway. Singapore is currently listed as a “Level 4: Very high level of COVID-19.”

“Because of the current situation in Singapore, even fully vaccinated travelers may be at risk for getting and spreading COVID-19 variants,” the CDC notes in its advisory. “If you must travel to Singapore, make sure you are fully vaccinated.”

Singapore has reported a total of 158,587 confirmed cases, and 264 deaths so far. But, more than half of those cases and 202 deaths are just in the last month according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

  1. Who would listen to the CDC? I’ve also traveled extensively and had a great time. I’ve had more COVID tests than you can imagine but had a fabulous time and not waiting years more to live my life.

  2. I’ve traveled to dozens of countries during the ‘pandemic’ – that were all Level 4.
    No issues.

    Actually had a great time.

    Does anyone, honestly, believe what the CDC says anymore?
    I find that almost impossible to believe.
