Singapore were one of the first countries to introduce special travel arrangements during the pandemic with a series of Reciprocal Green Lane (RGL) agreements, alongside a number of other entry schemes.
Between 8th June and 25th December 2020, 2,490 people entered Singapore through the RGL and official figures have confirmed that just 2 visitors, both from Japan, tested positive for Covid-19.
The travellers tested positive during mandatory entry checks despite having negative tests prior to their departure.
The RGL scheme allows short-term travel for essential business and official purposes between Brunei Darussalam, Germany, Indonesia, Japan, Mainland China (Chongqing, Guangdong, Jiangsu, Shanghai, Tianjin and Zhejiang), Malaysia and Republic of Korea.
The majority of people entering Singapore, 1,640, came from the Northeast Asia countries of China, Japan and South Korea, a further 835 from Brunei, Indonesia and Malaysia and 15 from Germany.
