Starting 18 September, Japan and Singapore will open ‘green lane’ for business and official travel.
In the official statement of the two nations, the travel corridor will “help restore connectivity and support economic recovery for both countries.” This entails that those eligible to travel will not be required to be quarantined for 14 days, but controlled itinerary for the first 14 days in the receiving country will be imposed. Moreover, pre-departure and post-arrival testing is mandatory.
“It will be an important step forward as Japan gradually resumes international travel,” Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi said. “There have been great business needs for travel between Japan and Singapore, such as in areas of finance and logistics.”
Singapore had earlier established travel corridors with Brunei Darussalam, China, Malaysia, New Zealand and South Korea. You can find the complete process and requirements to enter Singapore coming from the aforementioned countries here.
Meanwhile, Japan has allowed travel for expatriates and other long-term residents from Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. However, travellers must quarantine for 14 days after arrival either at home or in a designated location.
Japan is also in talks with Australia, Brunei, China, Hong Kong, Macau, Mongolia, New Zealand and South Korea to ease travel restrictions.
