Singapore will stop entry or transit for visitors with recent travel history to Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, the COVID-19 multi-ministry task force said on Friday, April 30.

According to a leading news channel in Singapore, the ban starts on May 2 and covers all long-term pass holders and short-term visitors who have been in the four countries in the last 14 days, including transit.

It will also apply to those who have obtained prior entry approval from Singapore authorities, said co-chair of the task force Lawrence Wong.

Those with recent travel history to the four countries, who are serving a 14-day stay-home notice in Singapore as of May 3, will have this extended by another seven days at dedicated stay-home facilities.

The move, which kicks in from 11.59 pm on Saturday in Singapore, also applies to those who had transited through these countries and who had obtained prior approval for entry to Singapore.
