🛡️ Travel safety for Singapore

Do not travel

April 3, 2020

Unless you’re a resident of Singapore, you won’t be able to enter or transit Singapore. If you are a long-term resident of Singapore seeking to return, you'll require approval from the Singapore Immigration and Checkpoints Authority and other relevant agencies before commencing travel to return to Singapore. This is in addition to meeting health check and quarantine requirements on arrival if you're permitted to return (see Travel). There are significant penalties for anyone who breaches restrictions. If you’re in Singapore and wish to return to Australia, do so by commercial means if you can as departure options are diminishing. If you can't or don't want to leave, follow the advice of local authorities and minimise your risk of exposure to COVID-19. Stay in touch with family and friends so they know you're safe and well. If you need urgent consular assistance call +61 2 6261 3305. We now advise you to: Do not travel to Singapore.
