Significant relaxation of health and travel restrictions in Singapore bodes well for TFWA Asia Pacific Live

Singapore will lift restrictions on large-scale social events, live performances, and alcohol consumption beyond 10.30pm. The number of people who can gather in social groups will be expanded from five to ten, and restaurants and bars will be able to serve up to ten fully vaccinated customers.

The Singaporean government announced that from 1st April, Singapore will allow all fully vaccinated travellers, whatever their country of origin, to enter the country quarantine-free and without the need for testing on arrival. Fully vaccinated travellers will simply need to take a pre-departure PCR or lateral flow (antigen) test within two days of leaving for Singapore.
 
In addition, Singapore will lift restrictions on large-scale social events, live performances, and alcohol consumption beyond 10.30pm. The number of people who can gather in social groups will be expanded from five to ten, and restaurants and bars will be able to serve up to ten fully vaccinated customers. While mask wearing indoors will still be mandatory, it will be optional outdoors. 
 
Online registration for the TFWA Asia Pacific Live networking event, which will take place from Monday 9th May to Wednesday 11th May at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, is now open. 

The announcements today are very positive news for the entire travel retail industry, and mean that wherever you are in the world, fully vaccinated travellers can now enter Singapore without restrictions. I’d like to pay tribute to the Singapore Tourism Board and the authorities in Singapore for taking these positive steps. It is certainly heartening for us at TFWA as we continue our preparations for our May event, and we’re certain that it will encourage many more of our colleagues from all parts of the globe to join us for what will be a long-awaited opportunity for our industry to gather in this vitally important region.” said
