Requirements for Travellers Not Fully Vaccinated with COVID-19 WHO EUL Vaccines
Within two days before departure, take any of the following COVID-19 tests:

A PDT is not required only if you tested positive for COVID-19 between 14 to 90 days before your date of departure for Singapore. You can use this tool to check if the pre-departure test can be waived, and the documentation required to prove your first infection or recovery.
Short-term visitors must ensure they have travel insurance covering COVID-19, with at least $30,000 of medical coverage. Read the COVID-19 insurance and medical treatment page for details.
