Travellers from Singapore and South Korea who need to travel between the two countries will soon be able to do so under a fast lane agreement launched on September 4. 

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced the launch of the fast lane on September 2, and said that it will be open to residents in Singapore and South Korea who need to make essential business or official trips between both countries.

The announcement added eligible travellers will have to abide by the mutually agreed terms and prevailing public health measures in the respective countries. 

These include measures such as health safeguards in the form of pre-departure and post-arrival testing, as well as the need to adhere to a controlled itinerary for the first 14 days in the receiving country.

Operational details including the requirements, health protocols and the application process will be published on the SafeTravel website by September 4. 

MFA said the foreign ministers of both countries welcomed the move, and added this “will help restore connectivity and support economic recovery with the necessary public health safeguards.”
