SINGAPORE — All travellers entering Singapore who have travel history in the past 21 days to Fiji are required to serve a 21-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN) at dedicated SHN facilities given the "worsening" COVID-19 situation in the South Pacific country, the Ministry of Health (MOH) said on Monday (14 June).

Previously, these travellers were subject to a 21-day SHN consisting of 14-day SHN at dedicated SHN facilities and seven days at a place of residence or self-sourced accommodation.

Travellers who have not completed their 14-day SHN at dedicated SHN facilities by 16 June 2021, 11.59pm, have to serve the additional seven days at their current dedicated SHN facility.

Travellers who are currently serving their SHN at a place of residence or self-sourced accommodation have to complete their 21-day SHN at their current location to minimise risk of transmission.

Travellers from Israel

Meanwhile, given the "improving situation in Israel", travellers from the Middle Eastern country who have remained in Israel in the last 21 days before arrival in Singapore from 16 Jun 2021, 11.59pm, will be subject to a 21-day SHN comprising 14-day SHN at dedicated SHN facilities and seven days at a place of residence or self-sourced accommodation, the MOH said.

Previously, all travellers from Israel are subject to a 21-day SHN at dedicated SHN facilities.

All travellers serving 21-day SHN will undergo COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction tests on arrival, on the 14th day of their SHN, and before the end of their 21-day SHN period.
