COVID-19 General Advisory for Travellers

What to do if you are unwell or test positive for COVID-19 while visiting Singapore 

Should you feel unwell or tested positive for COVID-19 

Travellers who are unwell or tested positive for COVID-19 should receive medical advice if they fulfil any of the following criteria.

  • Aged 60 and older
  • Have Acute Respiratory Infection (ARI) symptoms
  • Immunocompromised or have concurrent medical conditions such as obesity (e.g., adults with a BMI ≥30), hypertension, diabetes, chronic heart and lung diseases, kidney diseases on dialysis, hypercoagulable states, cancer, or patients on drugs that cause immunosuppression
  • Pregnant 
  • Persons with Down’s syndrome

Persons with mild ARI symptoms should stay at home until symptoms resolve.

If there is a need to go out while symptomatic, or if asymptomatic but test positive for COVID-19, exercise social responsibility by observing the following practices. 

  • Minimise social interactions
  • Wear a mask
  • Avoid crowded places
  • Do not visit vulnerable places such as hospitals and nursing homes
  • Do not have contact with vulnerable persons such as the elderly

Refer to Should you test positive on a COVID-19 PCR test, please note that you will be assigned a separate telemedicine provider for medical support while you are serving your Isolation, and should not reach out to the telemedicine providers on this list. 

Self-administered ART kits can be purchased online or from pharmacies and drugstores around Singapore. Hotels may also carry self-administered kits for purchase. If you test positive on an ART and are self-isolating, you should purchase your ART kits through contactless methods and should not leave your accommodation to do so.

By default, travellers should recover in hotels or residential accommodation unless they are 1) partially vaccinated or unvaccinated, aged 50 years and above 2) Vaccinated, aged 80 years and above 3) Children aged below 3 months and children aged 3 months to below 3 years, who have been assessed by a medical professional to be clinically unsuitable to recover at home or in a hotel. These travellers will be advised by MOH to be transferred to an appropriate care facility. Travellers may opt to recover at home if they own a residence in Singapore. Travellers may not check into another hotel for recovery, or change their isolation venues (e.g. transfer hotels) once they have begun isolating. They will only be released upon fulfilling the recovery conditions.

Health Risk Notices (HRN) are issued to persons identified as close contacts of a COVID-positive case, if declared a close contact by a COVID-positive case.
