Singapore Is The Next Country Opening Their Borders To Australia

You guys, when it rains it pours! New Zealand and Japan have already spoken about re-opening their borders to Australia in the wake of our low COVID-19 numbers, and now Singapore has officially announced their own travel bubble with us.

Singapore has been slowly letting more and more countries back in since September and they’ve now announced that Australia and Vietnam will be allowed into the country from October 8. The exception here is Victoria — I’m sorry mates you’ll have to wait a little longer.

For the rest of us, we’ll have to apply for an Air Travel Pass (ATP) and be able to show that we haven’t left Australia (or been in Victoria) for 14 days prior to travel to Singapore. On arrival, they’ll have to have a COVID test, and a negative test means no quarantine period.

So, not quite like it was before pandemic life, but an in is an in.

That means you’re back to chowing down on that signature Black Pepper Crab only Singapore knows how to do so well. You can also completely fix that misconception a lot of people have that Singapore doesn’t know how to party. We got an insider to show us why that’s so wrong. I mean heck, even the airport is amazing.

Putting this into perspective, we still don’t know what Australia will do with return travellers, or the availability of flights, but in case you haven’t worked it out already — I NEED THIS so I’m staying positive. Either way, you can find more details here.
