Singapore has banned all flights from India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh.

The Singapore border remains open to all citizens and pass holders except tourists from Bangladesh, India, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.

As a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic international travel was banned in Singapore. SafeTravel routes allow a more controlled entry into Singapore, depending on the visitor's profile and destination. Certain types of journeys are permitted, but they are limited depending on the traveler's previous visits to specific regions.

Except for Singaporeans, all Long-Term Pass holders, IPA holders, and short-term visitors with a recent travel history to Bangladesh, India, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, or Sri Lanka will be denied entry to Singapore. In addition, any individual who obtains prior approval under the "Connect@Singapore'' initiative to enter Singapore will also be denied access if they have travel history from Bangladesh, India, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, or Sri Lanka within the last 21 days until further notice as of August 17.

The lanes are available to travelers who merely need to go to Singapore for a short business trip. Only those with a prior travel history to the specified countries/regions, such as those with an air travel pass and reciprocal green lane, can use the corresponding routes. All countries and areas have been allowed, except Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Pakistan.

The Director-General of India's Civil Aviation has extended the ban on scheduled international commercial passenger services to/from India until 2359 hrs IST of August 31, 2021. However, Pakistan and Bangladesh have not updated on flight prohibition.
