Pre-Departure COVID-19 Test
A pre-departure COVID-19 test is not required for transit travellers with a 14-day travel history to any Category(I) countries/regions.
All other travellers transiting in Singapore are required to take a COVID-19 Polymerase Chain Reaction test(“PCR test”) within 48 hours before departure for Singapore. Only travellers with a valid negative COVID-19 PCR test report will be allowed to board their flight or ferry to transit in Singapore.
Foreign travellers transiting in Singapore will not require entry visas if they can complete their transit by staying within the transit area of Changi Airport (Terminals 1, 2, 3 and 4) without clearing immigration.
Some airlines may require travellers to pass through Singapore Immigration to transit as they do not have the necessary transfer facilities in the transit area of the airport. In such cases, the traveller should check the ICA main website here on whether they need to apply for an entry visa.
Please check with your airline on whether your transit requires you to clear immigration.
