The details in this page is only relevant to Singapore Permanent Residents who are PCA travellers working in Malaysia, returning to Singapore for home leave. These travellers will be subject to the prevailing travel health control measures, which includes a 21-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN) at an SHN-Dedicated Facility.
From 29 May 2021, 2359 hours, all returning PRs, including approved PCA travellers, are required to take a COVID-19 Polymerase Chain Reaction test (“PCR test”) within 72 hours before departure to Singapore. The test must be taken at a recognised or accredited laboratory in Malaysia, and travellers must produce a valid negative test report during pre-boarding checks and immigration clearance, which:
- Is in English (or accompanied with an English translation);
- Contains the Traveller’s name, and Date of Birth or Passport number (per the passport used to travel to Singapore); and
- Reflects the date and result of the PCR test.
Failing which (i.e. not tested), the traveller may be turned away from entry at the checkpoint and have their entry/re-entry permits cancelled. Travellers with difficulties getting a COVID-19 PCR test before their departure can contact the Safe Travel Office via this Enquiry Form or 6812 5555.
