Advisory No. 119

October 16, 2020

To our Singapore-bound passengers:

Effective OCTOBER 20, all passengers traveling from the Philippines to Singapore must take an RT-PCR (swab) COVID-19 TEST within 72 hours prior to departure.   

Exempted from this rule are the following travelers:

  • Passengers under the age of 12 years old
  • Singapore Citizens
  • Singapore Permanent Residents


The traveler must present a valid NEGATIVE test result, and the test must be conducted by recognized laboratories that are internationally accredited or recognized by the Philippine government. The proof of the negative result must be in English, and state the following:

  • The NEGATIVE test result;
  • The date that the test was taken; and
  • the name, date of birth, nationality and passport number of the passenger as indicated in his or her passport.

Upon arrival, passengers entering Singapore will still be required to serve a 14-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN) at a dedicated SHN facility, and to take a COVID-19 test showing negative results before the end of their SHN period.

All short-term visitors must still seek prior approval via appropriate COVID-19 travel channels (e.g. obtain a Safe Travel Pass under Green/Fast Lane arrangements, or Air Travel Pass) before they can enter Singapore.
