VTL travellers from Singapore exempted from South Korea’s new quarantine rules – People will still be able to travel without quarantine between Singapore and South Korea under the Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) scheme, in spite of new border restrictions kicking in from Friday (Dec 3).
This comes a day after South Korea announced it would impose a 10-day quarantine on all travellers from Friday – regardless of vaccination status – due to concerns over the Omicron variant.
“Given that the Covid-19 situation remains volatile, we advise all travellers to check our website regularly for the latest border control measures prior to travel,” said the embassy in a notice posted on its website.
Singapore’s VTL with South Korea was launched on Nov 15.
There was some uncertainty earlier on whether South Korea’s new quarantine rules would apply to VTL travellers from Singapore.
The measure came after South Korea confirmed its first five cases of the Omicron variant late on Wednesday, including a fully vaccinated couple who arrived last week from Nigeria, followed by two of their family members and a friend.
South Korea is among countries that have reintroduced quarantine requirements for travellers in response to Omicron. Many countries, including Singapore, have tightened Covid-19 requirements for travellers as well.
