Despite being one of the first countries to look at travel corridors and bubbles, all has been relatively quiet from Singapore recently. There is now hope that more open travel corridors may start from later in the year.
Ong Ye Kung, Singapore Transport Minister has said today that Singapore will need to remove stay-at-home notices and quarantine of the travel industry is to survive.

He went on to say that while vaccinations were a game changer, they needed to be used in tandem with measures such as testing, movement restrictions and arrangements with countries deemed to be “safe.”
He went on to say that the creation of travel corridors with countries with moderate infection levels and an ongoing vaccination programme could help to restart tourism in Singapore.
Singapore created a number of travel corridors and bubbles last year but have found that a number have not been reciprocated by the other country and the proposed Hong Kong bubble has still not opened due to ongoing cases in the territory.
