From October 19, unvaccinated children aged 12 and younger will enter Singapore via the vaccinated travel lane system.
The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) said that another passenger must accompany children on the scheme.
Singapore has immunised travel lanes with Brunei and Germany at the moment. From October 19, vaccinated travel lanes will open with Canada, Denmark, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, the United Kingdom, the United States, and South Korea from November 15.
“Although there is some danger to public health, it can be minimised by the other precautions. When travelling with an unvaccinated kid, we advise parents to take extra precautions.”
Children travelling in vaccinated traffic lanes, like other scheme participants, will not be required to undergo quarantine, according to CAAS. Except for children under the age of two, they will be subjected to pre-departure and on-arrival polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing.
“Travelers are encouraged to examine the current entry criteria imposed by the countries they are visiting, including any age limits and immunisation requirements,” CAAS stated.
Brunei presently prohibits widespread movement within the nation, according to the government. It further stated that beginning November 15, South Korea would allow general entry into the country via the vaccinated travel lane, excluding children who do not qualify for vaccination or persons who are medically unable to be vaccinated.
CAAS explained the travel requirements for children in the vaccinated travel lanes, saying that youngsters aged 12 and younger will be eligible without having to provide proof of vaccination.
Singaporean children, permanent residents, long-term pass holders, and short-term tourists are all included. The calendar year will be used to determine the child’s age.
