On 25 June 2020, the U.K. Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) issued updated travel advice regarding mandatory quarantine upon arrival, which reads in part as follows:

“Everyone granted permission to enter Singapore will be issued with a 14-day Stay at Home Notice (SHN) which must be served at a government designated hotel and costs ,000 (unless you have spent 14 days or more before arrival in Australia, Brunei, Mainland China, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Macau, New Zealand, South Korea, Taiwan or Vietnam. If you meet this criteria, you will be permitted to carry out 14 days quarantine at your place of residence in Singapore, if you have one). In addition to quarantine fees, all arrivals must pay for a Covid-19 test which will be conducted before the 14 day quarantine period ends. Whilst you are serving your 14 days quarantine you will not be allowed to leave your room. Smoking may not be allowed in the facilities. The 14 day period cannot be reduced, even if you wish to leave Singapore. Failure to comply carries a fine and a jail term of up to six months. More details can be found on the Singapore government website.

“See information on questions about facilities for returnees on the Singapore Government website.

“Permanent Residents and approved work pass holders with permission to enter Singapore must submit an online health declaration in advance of their arrival into Singapore. Otherwise it will need to be completed upon entry and may result in delays to immigration clearance.”
