The UK, that is England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, has its borders closed to Singaporeans at the moment due to the pandemic. In order to enter the country from Singapore, you’ll need to quarantine on arrival, even if you are a UK citizen or resident.

If you're still committed to travelling to the UK, we've outlined all the need-to-know information, from quarantine rules to internal travel restrictions to make your trip from Singapore as smooth as possible.

Can I travel from Singapore to United Kingdom?

Anyone from Singapore can travel into the UK so long as they haven't been to or through a country on the declared banned list (also known as the "red list") in the past 10 days, and does the following:

  • Takes a COVID-19 test 3 days before your departure and present a negative result.
  • Goes into quarantine for 10 days upon arrival in the UK. This can be at a residence of your choosing, unless you've been to a country on the declared banned list in which case you'll be sent to a managed quarantine hotel. This will be at your own expense.
  • Takes two COVID-19 tests after you arrive in the UK. These must be organised by yourself prior to arrival and are to be taken on days 2 and 8 of your stay.

The only other exception for travel from Singapore is if you are British, Irish or have the right to live in the UK.
