Singapore will further restrict overseas arrivals from more countries as the Covid-19 situation in India continues to deteriorate further.

The Health Ministry said on April 30 that from May 1, 11.59 pm, long term pass holders and short term visitors with recent travel history (including transit) to Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka within the last 14 days will not be allowed entry into Singapore, neither will they be allowed to transit through Singapore.

This will also apply to all those who had obtained prior approval for entry into Singapore.
