The other 20 are from Brunei, with 90% being short-term visitors. The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore said it’s a cautious start to the scheme, adding that it will build confidence as Singapore reopens its borders.

Will Singapore’s COVID-19 travel lanes with Germany, Brunei be subject to last-minute suspensions?

Singapore will pilot vaccinated travel lane (VTL) arrangements with Germany and Brunei from September. At a news conference on Thursday (Aug 19), Transport Minister S Iswaran was asked if these would be suspended if COVID-19 situations in these countries changed. “These vaccinated travel lanes are materially different in the way they are developed, compared to the air travel model with Hong Kong previously discussed," he said. "So … this is not a case where the situation might change because of circumstances and therefore we pull the plug on the VTL."
