Singapore and Thailand are abolishing the test obligation for travelers who are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus. For Singapore, this obligation has come to an end today, and in Thailand it will happen as of next Sunday (May 1). This makes it much easier for most people to travel to those countries.
Previously, the quarantine obligation for fully vaccinated people was already canceled.
Both Asian countries hope to attract more tourists with the relaxation and give the economy a boost. It is also good news for the National Airlines, Singapore Airlines and Thai Airways, which are expected to be able to welcome more travelers.
Singapore and Thailand consider travelers to be fully vaccinated if they have received at least one dose of Janssen or two doses of the other vaccines, such as Pfizer.
