SINGAPORE, 16 September 2021: The Travel Corporation has updated its vaccination policy this week that requires all guests travelling on the travel firm’s itineraries to be fully vaccinated.

The latest updated rule will apply until 31 December 2022.

In its Facebook Page post, TTC said the final jab (two-dose
series) must be administered at least 15 days prior to the start of the trip to
ensure the wellbeing of all travellers buying travel itineraries.

Headquartered in Singapore, TTC Asia is reporting strong
sales for its German packages under the Trafalgar brand launched after
Singapore announced a travel lane with Germany due to start on 7 September.

Conditions to fly the VTL to Germany

Travellers must meet all VTL eligibility criteria and
required health measures. These include:

Travellers must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 with
the Pfizer-BioNTech/Comirnaty, Moderna or other World Health Organisation
Emergency Use Listing vaccines, with the final dose completed at least 14 days
prior to arrival in Singapore. 

Provide proof of vaccination in the form of an electronic or
physical vaccination certificate in English by the Singapore or German
government.

Must have stayed in Germany and/or Singapore for at least 21
consecutive days before departure.

Take a pre-departure Covid-19 Polymerase Chain Reaction
(PCR) test within 48 hours before flight departure, an on-arrival PCR test at
Singapore Changi Airport, as well as up to two post-arrival PCR tests in
Singapore.

Must book only a dedicated VTL flight.

Short-term visitors and Long-Term Pass holders travelling to
Singapore are required to apply for a Vaccinated Travel Pass (VTP) issued
between 7 and 30 days prior to their intended date of entry into Singapore.
Vaccinated travel Passes opened for applications from 1 September 2021.

Singapore citizens and permanent residents are not required
to apply for a VTP, but must show their vaccination status on the HealthHub app
or present proof of their vaccination issued by the Singapore Government or the
German Government.

Short-term visitors who require a visa for travel to
Singapore must separately obtain a visa. They are advised to do so after
receiving their VTP approval and before departure.

They must also purchase travel insurance, with a minimum
coverage of SGD30,000 for Covid-19-related medical treatment and
hospitalisation costs, prior to travel to Singapore.

These visitors must also use the TraceTogether app in
Singapore to facilitate contact tracing. For visitors who are unable to use a
mobile device due to a certified disability or special need, they may be issued
with TraceTogether tokens.

You must have the intention to enter Singapore. Transit
passengers are not eligible for the VTL flights and will not be allowed to
board the designated VTL flights. Non-VTL travellers are also not allowed to
board the designated VTL flights.
