All travellers going to Singapore from Malaysia via the land Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) will be required to take an Antigen Rapid Test (ART) upon arrival.
The Singaporean Ministry of Trade And Industry (MTI) today said, this compulsory requirement has been enforced to prevent the potentially more contagious variant of the Covid-19 virus, the B.1.1.529.
“The on-arrival ART will allow us to reduce the risks of the spread of B.1.1.529 to Singapore, and enable us to progressively expand the land VTL in a safe and calibrated manner,” said the ministry.
The travellers will be administered at the Woodlands Temporary Bus Interchange and Queen Street Terminal, said MTI.
The statement added that the travellers will be required to make an e-payment for the ART at the testing centre directly.
