It's official! Singapore and Hong Kong have reached an in-principle agreement to establish a two-way Air Travel Bubble (ATB). This will allow travel between both cities without quarantine. There are conditions that travellers will have to adhere to, however, including testing negative for Covid-19.
Though no date is set yet, Singapore Transport Minister Ong Ye Kung said on Thursday that the travel bubble could start in a matter of "weeks". Anyone who has stayed 14 days in either city, regardless of age and nationality, will be eligible to travel freely. The announcement has already seen the cost of air tickets between Singapore and Hong Kong jump by about 40 per cent upon the announcement of the 'travel bubble'.
Here's everything you need to know – and what you can and cannot do when the 'travel bubble' is established.
