Singapore announces new border control measures to go into effect on February 22

Effective February 22, inbound travelers will be subject to new, simplified quarantine rules, Long-Term Pass Holders (LTPH) will benefit from less onerous entry requirements, and additional Vaccinated Travel Lanes (VTL) will become available to qualifying travelers. Also from February 22, Categories 2 (risk), 3 (high-risk) and 4 (very high-risk) will be combined into a newly, unified “General Travel” category. In addition, the Government of Singapore will introduce a new “Restricted” Category for jurisdictions with COVID-19 related developments that warrant stricter controls (e.g., following the discovery of new COVID-19 variants in these jurisdictions).

A Tax Alert prepared by EY's People Advisory Services group, and attached below, provides additional details.
