Travellers Arriving In Singapore Will Receive Advance Notification Of Stay-Home Notice Requirements

1.       From 27 March 2020, 0900  hours, all travellers arriving in Singapore, including residents [Singapore Citizens (SC), Permanent Residents (PR)], and Long-Term Pass (LTP) holders (Student’s Pass, Dependant’s Pass, Work Pass and Long-Term Visit Pass Holders), must submit a health declaration before proceeding with immigration clearance. They will have to do so via the SG Arrival Card (SGAC) e-Service. The health declaration will be made available before 27 March 2020 as part of the SGAC e-Service, so that travellers who are due to arrive in Singapore after 27 March, 0900 hours, can complete it in advance of their arrival.

2.       Upon the submission of their health declaration, travellers will be notified electronically via email, on the need to comply with the 14-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN) on arrival in Singapore. This allows travellers to be notified of their SHN requirements earlier, instead of only during immigration clearance in Singapore. At the same time, they will be made aware of the penalties under Section 21A of the Infectious Diseases Act (IDA) if they fail to comply with the requirements.
