Latest Border Openings: Nepal, Singapore & Thailand
Updated: Oct 14, 2021
Already popular with those looking to get away from it all, this latest news is sure to make these 3 destinations an even more popular escape - especially after a year of quarantine.
Nepal – Now Open
Per the country’s official announcement, so long as you have received your second vaccine dose at least 14 days prior to entering Nepal, you will be free to visit the country without needing to quarantine. On arrival visa services have resumed, and travelers will just need to present their vaccination certificate, a negative RT-PCR Report (swab taken within 72 hours of departure time), and proof of their hotel booking.
With tourism so crucial to Nepal, no expense has been spared to make sure that your visit will be safe – the government has deemed the country’s tourism industry to be part of the prioritized frontline vaccination group, so as of now, more than 95% of the country’s travel workers have been fully vaccinated.
Singapore – October 19th
Set to open in less than a week, Singapore’s latest initiative will allow fully vaccinated travelers from the United States to take part in the country’s Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL).
As part of the VTL requirements, all travelers will need to bring along valid proof of vaccination, a negative COVID-19 PCR Test result taken within 48 hours of departure (which must be taken at an internationally accredited or recognized laboratory, clinic or medical facility), and they will need to submit their health and travel history electronically via the SG Arrival Card e-service 3 days prior to arrival.
Additionally, travelers will be required to travel upon specially designated Singapore Airlines flights; an on-arrival PCR test is required before visitors are allowed to freely travel the country, as well.
Thailand – November 1st
As outlined by the country’s Prime Minister, Thailand has announced that fully vaccinated travelers will no longer be subject to quarantine requirements starting November 1st.
All travelers will still need proof of vaccination, as well as a negative COVID-19 PCR Test before they are allowed to embark for Thailand; as with Singapore, Thailand will require a negative, on-arrival PCR test before visitors are free to move about the country without restriction.
While there has never been a shortage of reasons to visit these 3 destinations, the chance to dust off our passports and once again pack our bags makes Nepal, Singapore & Thailand more appealing than ever.
