To limit the numbers of Omnicron cases in Singapore, the Ministry of Health (MOH) recently announced that they will be putting a freeze on all new ticket sales for VTL travel into Singapore from December 25, 2021 to January 20, 2022. This applies to both flight and bus tickets.

While there has only been a small number of cases and potential clusters, the MOH are taking precaution to stop the emergence of the virus in the wider community. With travel now back on the books, the ministry has picked up more cases due to the number of travellers entering Singapore. 

However, travellers who have already bought a ticket on a VTL flight or bus and meet all the other VTL requirements may continue to travel under the VTL during this time period. That saying, anyone entering Singapore will have to undergo rigorous testing prior and upon landing to ensure that they are virus-free. 

Stuck in Singapore for the holidays? There's still plenty to do in the city like hiking some hidden spots, using our SingapoRediscover vouchers, going for a picnic and more.
