Australia opening to Singapore travellers later this month

Thursday, 31 Oct, 2021 0

Singaporeans will soon be able to travel down under.

Tourists and students will be allowed into Australia quarantine-free from 21 November after Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Singapore Premier Lee Hsien Loong finalised a deal at the G20 summit.

It allows Aussies to travel to the Lion City under its ‘vaccinated travel lane’ (VTL) system.

Morrison said it will be up to individual states and territories to decide if they will accept foreign travellers without hotel quarantine or self-isolation.

Australia reopened borders with New Zealand on Sunday for travel to New South Wales.

“This means within weeks Australia will be welcoming tourists from two of our top 10 travel destinations,” Morrison said.

“This is the billion-dollar boost that Australia’s tourism industry has been waiting for. Step by step, everything that we know and love about Australia is inching back to normal.”

The NSW government said foreign vaccinated travellers will not have to undergo hotel quarantine  and other states such as Queensland are expected to follow in the coming weeks.

Before the pandemic, Australia welcomed about 400,000 Singaporeans each year.
