Monitor Desk Report Date: 11 October, 2021

City state Singapore and South Korea are going to launch a vaccinated travel lane from November 15. Both the big economies have reached a consensus to establish a travel corridor to allow quarantine-free travel between the two countries for people who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

Singapore’s Ministry of Transport (MOT) said in a statement that Singapore will jointly launch Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTLs) with South Korea that will allow fully vaccinated travellers to travel between Changi Airport and Incheon International Airport, and be subjected to Covid-19 PCR tests, in lieu of serving quarantine or stay-home notice.

There will be no restrictions on the purpose of travel or requirements for a controlled itinerary or sponsorship, it added.

The jointly launched VTLs will be the first of its kind between two major aviation hubs in Asia and build on longstanding relations to safely revive cross-border air travel and people-to-people flows, said the ministry.

The agreement was marked by a video conference on October 8 between Singapore’s transport minister S Iswaran and South Korea’s minister of land, infrastructure and transport Noh Hyeong Ouk.
