The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) has announced that they will extend vaccinated travel lanes (VTLs) to six more countries, including Maldives, next month.
Travellers from Thailand may enter Singapore under the quarantine-free VTL starting from December 14 and travellers from Cambodia, Fiji, Maldives, Sri Lanka and Turkey can do so from Dec 16.
This latest move will increase the number of countries with which Singapore has VTL arrangements to 27. These 27 countries contributed to about 60 per cent of the total daily arrivals at Changi Airport before Covid-19, said CAAS.
"This latest extension will further broaden Changi’s network and help reclaim and rebuild Singapore's status as an international aviation hub with global connectivity," CAAS said on Friday.
With the latest extension, the daily VTL quota will be raised from 10,000 to 15,000 travellers.
