Nestled in the south of Asia, New Zealanders travelling to Singapore can expect to find world-renowned architecture at the Marina Bay Sands and the Gardens by the Bay. However, at this point in time, Singapore is closed to New Zealander visitors who aren’t local citizens or residents.

In this guide, you’ll learn what the travel rules are for New Zealander travellers planning a trip to Singapore, when the border is opening, permit requirements and testing conditions.

Can I travel from New Zealand to Singapore?

Singapore’s border remains closed to travellers from New Zealand. Currently, the border is only open to New Zealander travellers who are citizens or residents of Singapore. Flights from New Zealand to Singapore are sparse and subject to change. Singapore aims to open its borders to quarantine-free travel for fully vaccinated New Zealander travellers by September 2021.

As of 26 August 2021, New Zealander travellers can enter Singapore quarantine-free if they have been in Hong Kong or Macau for 21 consecutive days — they must get tested on arrival and isolate until a negative test is returned.

From 8 September 2021, fully-vaccinated New Zealander travellers entering Singapore from Germany and Brunei, and have been there for at least 21 days, can apply for a Vaccinated Travel Pass to avoid quarantine — these travellers must still take multiple COVID-19 tests, before flying, on arrival and afterwards.
