Amid a rapidly changing global health situation, experts say it is hard to predict if other countries will impose restrictions on travellers from Singapore – meaning flexibility is key for those making a trip overseas.

Singapore was removed earlier this month from a European Union list of countries for which travel restrictions should be lifted.
Denmark, one of Singapore’s vaccinated travel lane (VTL) partners, imposed fresh restrictions on travellers from the country last week, including requiring self-isolation.
While the VTL scheme allows quarantine-free travel for those entering Singapore via designated flights, it does not exempt travellers from the requirements of the destination country or region.
SHOULD I BE WORRIED IF I WANT TO TRAVEL?
VTLs have been announced for 21 destinations – of which eight are EU member states.
The EU list is reviewed every two weeks, with criteria including the countries’ “epidemiological situation and overall response to COVID-19". But it is not legally binding and EU member states can adjust their own restrictions.
So far, none of them have followed in Denmark's footsteps to impose new restrictions on travellers from Singapore.
Health experts CNA spoke to said it is hard to predict if other countries will follow suit, as there are numerous factors that affect border restrictions.
I WANT TO BOOK TICKETS, HOW SHOULD I PREPARE?
Given the fluidity of the situation, flexible itineraries are key for those looking to travel, said experts.
Ms Lina Ang, managing director of APAC at travel digital marketing platform Sojern, said: “Don’t get yourself tied to any bookings (air or accommodation) that cannot be amended or cancelled in these current times. Flexible booking policies are key!”
Ms Kelly Toh, head of marketing and public relations at CTC Travel, also noted: “It is recommended to plan and book your trip earlier, and purchase travel insurance upon flight booking."
