On Tuesday, April 20, Singapore announced that travellers from India will have to serve an additional seven days Stay-at-Home Notice apart from the usual mandatory 14-days quarantine.

The announcement by the Ministry of Health came as the entry approvals for non-Singapore citizens and non-permanent residents are being reduced with immediate effect, in response to the worsening COVID-19 situation in India.

In an official statement, Singapore's Ministry of Health said that from 11.59 pm on Thursday, April 22, all travellers from India will also have to serve an additional seven-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN) at their place of residence, following the usual 14-day quarantine at a dedicated facility due to the steep rise in the coronavirus cases and the emergence of new virus strain in the country.

Those who are yet to complete their 14-day stay home period by that time will also have to serve the extra seven days, the report said.

The travellers will be tested for COVID-19 at the end of the initial 14-day stay home and at the end of the additional seven days.

Migrant workers from India who work in the construction, marine and process sectors will continue to be subjected to a 21-day stay-home notice.

These measures will minimise importation risks and protect public health, said the Ministry.
