I understand a Covid-19 pre-departure PCR test is required within 72 hours of the scheduled flight departure for travellers entering or transiting Singapore. How will the 72-hour period be counted?
Passengers on direct flights to Singapore
The 72 hours will be counted from the scheduled departure of the flight to Singapore. For example, if the flight is scheduled to depart on 30 June 2021, the Covid-19 PCR test must be taken no earlier than 27 June 2021.
Passengers who are taking a connecting flight to Singapore
(i) If the scheduled transit duration is within 24 hours, the 72 hours will be counted from the scheduled day of departure of the passenger’s first point of embarkation in his journey to Singapore. For example, if the passenger’s flight itinerary is Los Angeles-Tokyo-Singapore and his transit duration in Tokyo is within 24 hours, the Covid-19 PCR test must be taken within 72 hours before the scheduled day of departure of his flight from Los Angeles. Or,
(ii) If the scheduled transit duration exceeds 24 hours, the 72 hours will be counted from the scheduled day of departure of the last flight in his journey to Singapore (i.e. the flight to Singapore). For example, if the passenger’s flight itinerary is Los Angeles-Tokyo-Hong Kong-Singapore, and his total scheduled transit duration at Tokyo and Hong Kong adds up to more than 24 hours, the Covid-19 PCR test must be taken within 72 hours before the scheduled day of departure of his flight from Hong Kong.
Please note the above requirements also apply to Singapore Citizens and permanent residents. The following travellers are exempted from taking the pre-departure test:
- Children aged 2 years and below
- Those who have stayed in lower-risk countries/regions in the last 21 days before departure for Singapore. This currently applies to travellers from Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Mainland China, New Zealand, Hong Kong SAR and Macau. Travellers from lower-risk countries/regions are either required to take a Covid-19 test upon arrival in lieu of Stay-Home Notice (SHN), or are required to serve a 7-day SHN at their place of residence with a Covid-19 test administered at the end of their SHN.
Where can I get the latest Information on flight schedules?
Visit our flight schedules page to search for flights.
If my flight was cancelled can I get a refund?
Yes, if your Singapore Airlines or SilkAir flight was cancelled, you can request for a refund if you no longer wish to travel regardless of your original travel date.
If your cancelled flight was originally scheduled to fly before 1 April 2021, you can also choose to retain the unused value of your ticket for flight credits instead.
How do I know if my ticket is eligible for flight credits?
Customers holding tickets issued on or before 15 March 2020 and had originally planned their travels up to 31 March 2021 are eligible. The value of the unused portion of these tickets will be retained as flight credits, which can be used to book new itineraries for travel up till 31 December 2021.
This applies to all tickets purchased either directly from Singapore Airlines or via travel agents, except where tickets were purchased with KrisFlyer miles or HighFlyer points, on a child or infant fare, or where tickets are partially flown.
How do I find out the value of my flight credits or how much my ticket is worth?
If you have not completed any sectors in your booking, you may check the amount of flight credits you have by visiting Manage Booking . Tick the “Check flight credit balance” box and enter your booking reference and family name to view your available credits.
If you have purchased any add ons with your ticket or hold a partially used ticket, please submit your enquiry using the “Other Covid-19 related assistance” option on our Assistance Request Form.
How can I use my flight credits and bonus flight credits?
Once you are ready to book your new travel, you can use your flight credits and bonus flight credits to offset the cost of your rebooked itinerary. You can choose to book itineraries for your preferred destination on your preferred cabin class and on any travel date as long as the trip is completed by 31 December 2021. If the cost of the new itinerary exceeds the total value of your flight credits, a top-up will be required. If the cost is lower, any remaining flight credits can be used for a second trip.
When you’re ready to rebook, submit a request via our Assistance Request Form and choose the “Change or rebook your flight” option. All rebooking fees will be waived.
What information is required to be shown on my Covid-19 pre-departure test result memo?
Each country may require different information to be shown on the test certificate. Some examples are listed below. Passengers are advised to check the travel advisories of their destination countries to ensure that they meet all the requirements.
- a negative test result;
- test date;
- the name of the traveller as indicated in his/her passport; and
- at least one other detail of the traveller such as:
- date of birth
- passport number
- national identity number
For a smoother check-in process, passengers should check if the clinic is able to provide a test certificate with a corresponding QR code. This QR code should link to their digital pre-departure test certificate.
