Transit through Singapore
A pre-departure Covid-19 test is not required for transit travellers for all flights arriving in Singapore. Travellers wishing to transit through Changi Airport are encouraged to check the current ICA requirements and contact their chosen airlines directly to ensure they are able to complete their full journey.
