Singapore and Indonesia announced on Monday the establishment of a green alley, with applications that will begin on October 26 and begin shortly thereafter. Finally, Singapore and Hong Kong reached an agreement in principle on Thursday (October 15th) to create a bilateral air bubble exempting travellers from quarantine or residence orders. The Singapore-China Fast Lane initiative allows significant commercial and official travel between Singapore and six provinces and communities in mainland China, including Chongqing, Guangdong, Jiangsu, Shanghai, Tianjin and Zhejiang. Before businesses and travellers take to the road (and in the air), it is important to consider the requirements and understand the parameters and steps of the implementation of this initiative. That`s where we`re going to do it for you. The fast and reciprocal green tracks are basically the same, with the exception of what different countries call others. These routes refer to agreements between Singapore and selected countries or regions to facilitate business and important mission travel. SINGAPORE – Singapore and South Korea have reached a fast-lane agreement that, starting Friday, September 4, will allow for important trade and administrative missions between the two countries. Travellers to Singapore are subjected to a PCR test and a serology test on arrival.
More details on overrun arrangements and application procedures will be published on SafeTravel`s website by Friday. The Ministry of Trade and Industry reported the Straits Times last week that it had seen «strong positive interest from business travellers» in the overrun agreement with China since its launch on June 8. For incoming applicants from China, applications are currently open for official and business travellers applying through government authorities. Residents of Singapore (including Chinese residents working in Singapore for the long term) intend to make major commercial or official trips between Singapore and the six regions of China. Please note that as of December 1, 2020, direct air passengers from Singapore to China will no longer be able to board the aircraft with standardized negative certificates and will have to apply to the Chinese Embassy for a green health code bearing the «HS» or green health declaration code bearing the «HDC» mark. On 12 October, Singapore and Indonesia agreed to establish a greenway for major and official business travel. Travellers may only travel between the six adjacent overtaking zones within the first 14 days of arrival. However, letters of invitation must be obtained and approved by provincial and local authorities at the next destination.
Australia (excluding Victoria State), Brunei, New Zealand and Vietnam are countries where Singapore has unilaterally lifted its borders to allow visitors in the short term. Brunei is currently the only country where Singapore has both a system of green roads and unilateral border restrictions. He noted that the situation was dynamic, and he said, «Just because there is an outbreak of some cases does not mean that we immediately stop the overrun agreements.» I think our general view is that while the situation of infection in this country remains largely under control and the outbreak of cases does not overload their hospital systems… then it is not something that will prevent us from continuing the overrun agreements that we have developed with these countries. Singapore and China agreed to create a passing route to facilitate significant trade and administrative travel between the two countries. The fast lane will be established between six Chinese provinces and municipalities (Chongqing, Guangdong, Jiangsu, Shanghai, Tianjin and Zhejiang) and Singapore. The program is open to residents of Singapore and China who must make significant commercial or official travel between the two countries.
