Singapore now requires all travellers from South Korea to serve a 14-day quarantine at dedicated facilities due to “a sustained surge in cases” in the North Asian country, according to a statement.

  • Previously those with a history of travel to Korea in the past 14 days would have been allowed to serve their quarantine at a place of residence.
  • The new directive comes into effect from 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 26.
  • The ruling also applies to returning Singapore-based travellers under the reciprocal green lane with South Korea.
