All long-term pass holders and short-term visitors with recent travel history to Myanmar within the last 21 days will not be allowed to enter or transit through Singapore, the Ministry of Health (MOH) announced on Wednesday (Jul 14), given what it described as a "worsening" COVID-19 situation.
The measure will take effect from 11.59pm on Jul 15 until further notice.
It will also apply to travellers who transited through Myanmar within the 21-day period, and who obtained prior approval to enter Singapore.
All travellers with recent travel history to Myanmar will be subject to an on-arrival antigen rapid test under the tightened measures, said MOH.
Employers who are waiting for their Myanmar Helpers Entry approval will be advised for further updates.
