Singapore announced the country was considering more vaccinated travel routes following the USA's opening up to key trading partners.

Transport Minister Iswaran recently said that Singapore was keen to work with regional neighbors like Japan, Australia, and New Zealand.

“Certainly, Australia is a very important partner country for us. And there’s a great deal of connectivity between Australia and Singapore, and through Singapore to other parts of the world as well.

“So we are quite keen to work with Australia, with New Zealand, with Japan and many other countries in the region, in terms of how we can move forward in this regard.”

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong is pushing on with the strategy of living with COVID without being paralyzed by fear, saying in a TV address that the nation couldn’t stay “locked down and closed off indefinitely.”

Singapore added more countries, such as the USA, the UK, Italy, and France to its list of places fully vaccinated people can travel quarantine-free commencing as early as October 19, after kicking off an arrangement with Germany and Brunei in September.
