What is Singapore Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) and VTL Flights to Singapore?

Since September 8, 2021, Singapore has implemented the Vaccinated Travel Line (VTL) for Brunei and Germany. The VTL policy states that when travelers meet certain conditions, they do not have to be quarantined for two weeks after entering Singapore. Instead, they can go about their activities freely. This greatly saves the traveler's time cost. Tourists can only enjoy quarantine-free entry by taking VTL Flights to Singapore.

At present, the Vaccinated Travel Lane and VTL flights to Singpaore for these two countries has been implemented for one month and the results are great. The Singapore government decided to extend the scope of VTL countries, adding 6 European countries (Denmark, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, and the United Kingdom), 2 American countries (Canada and the United States) and 1 Asian country (South Korea) to the list to expand the number of people who can travel to Singapore without quarantine.

When will Singapore Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) take effect?
