Anyone here who recently made the trip to Singapore via the VTL lane from Germany? Would be curious to hear your experience. Iโ€™m planning to fly in in 2 weeks.

No. But I've had several friends do it. Apparently it was a pain at first, but maybe it's gotten better.
Hi everyone!!

I am in Thailand, full vaccinated. I have a plane to go to Singapore on November 26th. How is the situation there? I will like to be 4-5 days. I don't know if I need to do quarantine.

Thank's
okay thanks!
There's no option from Thailand unless you're a Singapore Citizen(SC)/PR, Long Term Pass Holder, or immediate family member of a SC/PR.
So if we have a layover from Thailand, are we not allowed to explore the airport?
If you lay over in Thailand, you are not travelling through a VTL and are not admissible with a VTP
Here's the updated chart

I am jealous. Have fun!
Okay I am having a slightly difficult time understanding so let me give the full details:
```1. Traveling from US to Singapore (3-4 day stay)
2. Traveling from Singapore to Thailand (~1 week stay)
3. Traveling from Thailand to US with a layover in Singapore (~6 hours)```
I think the answer is no, we cannot explore the airport during our layover, right?
Ooh yeah, definitely not. I noticed at the column reads Travellers wit ha 14-day travel history toโ€ฆ
๐Ÿ˜ญ
Thanks UDPVBT9A8! Where about are you at?
onur2mo
Currently in San Francisco. I want to fly to Singapore with VTL in December. :-)
Awesome! Hope you've a great time over there.
Howโ€™s Singapore nowadays regarding โ€œnormal lifeโ€ ? I went a few years back but I was on a business trip for only 1 week and I didnโ€™t had the chance to explore much, or work from anywhere.
Well everything apart from night clubs is open, you need to check in everywhere using the trace together app, you have to wear a mask everywhere inside and outside and no alcohol after 10pm, oh and no group gatherings above 5 people โ€ฆ so yeah rather โ€žnew normalโ€œ ๐Ÿ˜…
๐Ÿ˜… gotcha!
"Only passengers travelling with an airline whose transfer routes have been approved by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) will be allowed to transit in Singapore.

I was taking a look into this as an alternative to the new Indonesia quarantine and 350โ‚ฌ non-VTL vs 1200โ‚ฌ VTL for the same dates lol. Not only the price but also the non-VTL is more convenient and shorter ๐Ÿ˜ญ
You can fly for ~300โ‚ฌ from Berlin with scoot on VTL flights, but be prepared to spend 150โ‚ฌ a day once you're in Singapore ๐Ÿ˜„
In singapore until my japanese visa gets figured out, anyone else here
Not in Sing, but curous about your experience there so far? Where are you staying? Airbnb?
serviced apartment. they are very expensive, december everything has been booked out on airbnb and booking.January a bit cheaper but still pretty expensive to be here tbh.
Ah, yeah, figured that
Anyone know an easy way to search for just VTL flights? Going day by day is getting a bit annoying

Guys how's Singapore now? Is it worth it or too empty/too many restrictions?
There's still quite a number of covid restrictions in place (e.g. you need to โ€œcheck-inโ€ to every place you visit, you need to wear masks at all times even when outdoors and alone) but it's been pretty lively everywhere I go. Restaurants and bars have reduced capacity (due to social distancing rules) so be sure to make a reservation in advance!
thanks!
is this just in the last month with omicron or it has always been like this also 3-6 months ago
Is singapore open for quarantine-free entry from thailand right now? (I think no but the info is all a bit confusing, since there were reopening announcements less than a month ago)
ivkyheh I believe that Singapore remains open using their Vaccinated Travel Lane and Thailand is part of that program. They temporarily suspended the sale of additional tickets for flights but you can buy seats for after January 21 now if you donโ€™t already have a VTL flight booked (I saw seats last time I checked).

The rules are set out at safetravel.ica.gov.sg/vtl/requirements-and-process - the only quarantine involves waiting for the first PCR test result in an approved hotel. Itโ€™s then required that you do six more tests over the next six days but you are apparently free to travel about the country once the first test comes back negative.
This was when I visited around Christmas, not sure if there were tighter restrictions before (Iโ€™d assume so)
Hi cgumomr - here is a good website to follow, which is updated daily.
Sorry, I'm not allowed to share links yet on the slack. Flipping annoying! but I understand the reason.
This is a really cool link, thanks for sharing U02PX02256V!
Yeah, was the same in february last year when i was there. I'm going to be there next week though so can update you, but from what i've heard its basically the same still.
I've been living in Singapore for 2 years and it's not as restrictive as it sounds. You need to check-in to ever place, most buildings require vaccination to enter, masks are required except while eating, and they enforce maximum group sizes. But in practice for me, I feel safe everywhere I go and everything is basically open as usual (with less capacity but also fewer customers so it's about the same). And they're slowly loosening restrictions now.
Did anybody use the Singaporeโ€”South Korea bubble? Skipping the quarantine in South Korea would be a nice thing to replace with 2wks walking about in SG

Hello Good morning Singapore Nomads
Good afternoon :)
It just wonโ€™t last forever, as eventually they will make you get the blood serology test.
30 days
Think it lasts 6 months if you upload the actual qr code.
Oh that's new, you're right
Yeah. Mines valid until July. I guess after that I can get the serology test or see if it updates again because I got the booster jab
Serology takes less than 24 hours to get the status changed to permanent and you can do it at some GP clinics
Anyone have a favorite coworking space or recommendations? Planning to explore a few of them before settling on one. So far Iโ€™ve tried the great room and hive.
Did you ever tried Level 24 - Capital Green? ๐Ÿ™‚ A friend of mine worked there one time. she said it was pretty good
Oh great thanks. Just found it on work-buddy aswell so will give it a go Monday :)
Hey folks! Extrovert here struggling to find energy in Singapore. The limitations on group sizes & group intermingling can feel pretty taxing. Any tips for meeting new people around here at social events?
Yeah the 5 person limit means most meetups on things like meetup just donโ€™t happen anymore. Iโ€™m a midtrovert and finding it boring here without them. Though Iโ€™m down for an impromptu NL meet up if anyone else is? Iโ€™ll assume on their behalf that svmbbyqyah and uumimbpqculhu might also be
Yep thanks, Iโ€™m definitely interested too! ๐Ÿ˜
i'd def be up!
Letโ€™s do it
๐Ÿ™Œ
when works for everyone? i'm available anytime really. Or if its easier we can just plan things for several days and who evers available on each day can come? But weekend anytime works for me and weekdays after 5 or 6pm works.
Iโ€™m ok next Saturday after 1pm
fri night or Sat/Sun are good for me
This week, any time is good for me other than Monday, Tuesday, or Friday past 10 PM.
So I just found out I need to mail some legal documents back to the US, preferably as soon as practical within the next few days. Is there a version of FedEx Kinkoโ€™s in Singapore where I can just go print something and then mail it out?
Not sure. Maybe SingPost. Or possibly DHL.
I haven't tried it, but FedEx apparently has dropoff locations across the country, as well as an in-person Fedex station at/near Changi Airport

NL won't let me paste the link bc I'm new to the channel, but you can see locations if you google for local fedex
Shall we say saturday then? Any suggested locations? i'm not 100% sure i'll still be here then but still up for planning something lol.
Thanks all, will check these out!
Wait didnโ€™t you just arrive? :sweat_smile:

Iโ€™d need to explore the map to find good spots, anyone has good ones on top of their mind?
yeah lol, but now that theres no more quarentine i'm not too worried about travelling back and forth.
hmm, not sure. what does everyone feel like? exploring, food, or drinks?
food/drinks works for me. I'm in the Rob Quay area, lots here along the river, can also hop around if night sways that way
โ€ข goo.gl/maps/NH2vrku4UZU6vjKN7|Bar Celona> - Tapas spot that just opened up, haven't tried yet
โ€ข goo.gl/maps/NH2vrku4UZU6vjKN7|Super Loco> - Mexican food isn't exactly authentic but good vibes
โ€ข goo.gl/maps/seNCd2sphSWKLzE27|Kult Yard> - Funky outdoor spot in Chinatown, craft brews
Ok sorry guys, i'm actually heading back to the UK tonight after all, so i will catch you next time! Hope you all have a great time though
Oh wow, cya man!! Have a safe flight back ๐Ÿ™‚
thanks. I'll be back soon most likely, if you haven't travelled by then will see you soon!
For sure, let's keep in touch!
urznzkiztphzz tdbvsxgizu still up for meeting up this weekend?
I can still do Saturday after 3:30pm!
Letโ€™s do it! Any part of Singapore youโ€™d like to visit in particular?
I'm a tentative - this week got a bit busy but I should be able to confirm sat
