Travellers may be required to be fully vaccinated with WHO Emergency Use Listing (EUL) COVID-19 vaccines in order to be eligible for certain travel lanes to travel to Singapore, and domestic health measures requiring vaccinated status. This page outlines:

Obtaining Vaccinated Status for Activities Within Singapore
As part of Singapore’s Vaccination-Differentiated Safe Management Measures (VDS), you must be vaccinated to participate in certain activities in Singapore, such as dining, entering shopping malls or attending performances.
Travellers who are vaccinated overseas should present your vaccination certificate(s) to the ICA officer at immigration clearance in order to get the overseas vaccination records reflected electronically in their HealthHub or TraceTogether apps to show on demand to be eligible for VDS. Travellers need to:
- Be aged 12 and above;
- Be fully vaccinated overseas with any vaccines approved under the WHO EUL; and
- Bring along the original overseas vaccination document that clearly states the type of vaccine taken and date(s) they were taken. The documents need to be in English or translated to English by a translation service provider, notary public or embassy of the country that issued the document.
If your vaccination certificate(s) are valid, you will be granted temporary vaccinated status lasting about 30 days. You will need to download the TraceTogether app and register with your passport number to view your vaccination status. The vaccinated status in your TraceTogether app will be your proof of vaccination while going around Singapore.
Maintaining vaccination status beyond 30 days after arrival
The temporary vaccinated status on the TraceTogether app may expire 30 days after your arrival in Singapore. If you require your vaccination status for longer than 30 days, please visit a private healthcare provider or Public Health Preparedness Clinicsfor a serology test. Please call in advance to check if the service is available, and bring along your personal identification documents, vaccination certificate(s), as well as translated copies if necessary.
If your serology test is positive, the private healthcare provider will enter your vaccination records into the National Immunisation Registry (NIR). Your vaccinated status will be updated in the TraceTogether app within 24 hours and you will continue to be eligible for VDS.
