Are you looking to travel between Singapore and Australia?
The recent announcement of a Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) between Singapore and Australia is welcomed by the Northland Group team, clients and business partners in Australia and Singapore.
Following increasingly high vaccination rates in Australia and Singapore and boarders reopening, the Vaccinated Travel Lane was announced this week. It will essentially allow fully vaccinated Australian residents to enjoy two-way quarantine-free travel with Singapore from November 8th 2021. Fully vaccinated Singapore residents will enjoy the same quarantine-free travel to Australia later in the month. Australia’s borders are opening for quarantine-free travel for the fully vaccinated from next week with Sydney airport scrapping arrival caps on international arrivals on November 1st 2021.
Needless to say, Qantas and Singapore Airlines have put on additional flights between Singapore and Australia in anticipation of increased demand.
This is great news for the globally mobile with a nexus to Australia, particularly those currently living or working in Singapore.
