Have been infected with COVID-19 prior to vaccination and received at least one dose of any of the WHO vaccines (listed below) no later than 28 days from the first diagnosis of COVID-19 infection. Travelers must present acceptable proof of a first positive diagnosis of COVID-19.

Fully vaccinated travelers and children 12 years of age and younger should refer to this travel checklist for more information, including how to present proof of vaccination and maintain vaccination status to visit Singapore. Travelers who do not meet the vaccination criteria for entry should refer to the Traveler's Checklist for non-fully vaccinated travelers aged 13 years and older.
