VTL flights between S’pore and India to start Nov 29, with 6 flights daily from Chennai, Delhi, Mumbai

SINGAPORE — Commercial flights between Singapore and India under the vaccinated travel lane (VTL) will start from Nov 29, after both countries reached an agreement.

SINGAPORE — Commercial flights between Singapore and India under the vaccinated travel lane (VTL) will start from Nov 29, after both countries reached an agreement.

In a press release on Sunday (Nov 21), the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) said that there will be six designated flights every day from the Indian cities of Chennai, Delhi and Mumbai.

Through this travel lane scheme, fully vaccinated travellers from India may enter Singapore without quarantine and need to undergo Covid-19 testing.

Children aged 12 years and under who are not vaccinated will be allowed to travel to Singapore if they are accompanied by a traveller who meets the requirements of the scheme.

Applications for the vaccinated travel pass for short-term visitors and long-term pass holders from India will open on Monday, 6pm.

Fully vaccinated Singapore citizens, permanent residents and children aged 12 and below do not need to apply for a pass to enter Singapore.

Airlines can also operate flights between the two countries that are not part of this travel arrangement, although travellers on these flights must adhere to prevailing health requirements imposed by Singapore.

To facilitate the application process for vaccinated travel passes, applicants should also have their passport information, a digital proof of their vaccination status and the address in Singapore where they will be self-isolated while waiting for their on-arrival Covid-19 polymerase chain reaction test.

Short-term visitors who require a visa for travel to Singapore must separately obtain a visa. They are advised to do so after receiving their vaccinated travel pass approval and before departing for Singapore, CAAS said.

The airlines will announce the schedules for the flights under the travel lane and those that are not when they are ready, the authority added.
