Singapore lifts ban on travellers from Sri Lanka

Singapore announced on Saturday (Oct 23) that it will reopen its borders to some travellers from six countries, including Sri Lanka and India.

It also announced that it will loosen testing and stay-home notice restrictions for several other countries, including Malaysia and Indonesia.

This follows a review of the COVID-19 situation in these countries, said the Ministry of Health (MOH) in a media release.

From 11.59pm on Oct 26, travellers (excluding short-term visitors) with a 14-day travel history to Bangladesh, India, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, prior to departure to Singapore will be allowed to enter or transit through the country again.

These travellers will be subject to Category IV border restrictions, which include a 10-day stay-home notice at dedicated facilities. (
