(SPOT.ph) Singapore is often a go-to Asian destination for its outlet malls, shopping centers, and hawker centers. Its visa-free policy for Philippine passport-holders also makes it top of mind for international trips. And now that our neighbors have reopened their doors to tourists quarantine-free, there's no stopping fully vaccinated Filipino travelers from hopping on a plane and flying to the Lion City.

The Vaccinated Travel Lane program, which started on March 4, allows quarantine-free entry to Singapore as long as you're coming in through air travel, you're fully vaccinated, and you're taking only designated Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) flights. If you're not sure whether you're eligible for this program or not, their Immigration and Checkpoints Authority has a Self-Help Tool, where you can enter your country of origin and vaccination status.
