To help curb the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Singapore's Changi Airport will impose restrictions on short-term visitors and work pass holders arriving in the city.
Amid a rise of new cases of COVID-19 in Singapore, short-term visitors will not be allowed to enter the country starting March 23. This will include those making connections at Changi Airport to another destination after arriving at Singapore.
The country will also impose new regulations on worker pass holders. Work pass holders and their dependents will be allowed to return to Singapore only if they work in sectors that provide essential services such as healthcare and transport.
The new regulations will go along the current 14-day quarantine for arrivals to the city-state which applies to all Singapore citizens, permanent residents and long-term pass holders.
