Safe distancing & hygiene tips in Singapore:Similar to Malaysia, there are some essential safety measures you’ll need to adhere to while in Singapore. Here are some of the mandatory measures to keep in mind:
- Wear a mask that covers your mouth and nose at all times when you’re in public, including in attractions, eateries, and public or private hire transport. If you’re eating or drinking you can remove your mask but must put it back on immediately afterwards.
- Practice safe distancing measures when you’re out and about, including keeping 1 metre from other groups. Scan and check-in the SafeEntry QR codes at the entrance of attractions, eateries, and MRT stations to enable contact tracing. Compared to the tracing app in Malaysia, you’ll need to check-out once you leave that destination!
- Download and activate the TraceTogether app while you’re out and about. If you forget easily, switch it on when you leave your accommodation. This will help track who you’ve crossed paths with, which will be used for contact tracing if you come into contact with a COVID-19 case. You can download the TraceTogether app on the Google Play store and iOS App Store. (P.S. This app is easy to use and similar to the tracing app in Malaysia!)
- Look out for attractions, eateries, and accommodations that have been granted the SG Clean mark. The mark certifies that they have met the requirements for safety and hygiene set by the Singapore government, including increased cleaning frequency, enforcement of safe distancing measures, and use of contactless entry methods.
- Attractions in Singapore now require all visitors to pre-book tickets to secure their slot and ensure safe distancing during your visit. As popular attractions may be sold out during weekends or school holidays, we recommend booking your tickets as early as possible so that you can get your desired slot.
- At the moments, small groups of up to 5 are allowed in public spaces including restaurants. We recommend travelling in smaller groups - do check the latest regulations for updates on the number of persons allowed in small gatherings and groups!
- If you’re travelling with kids, children under 6 years of age are not required to wear a mask. Children 12 years and below are allowed to wear a face shield in place of a mask if they have difficulty keeping a face mask on for prolonged periods of time.

- If possible, make a reservation at these eateries ahead of time to ensure you get a table - especially if you’re visiting during the peak lunch and dinner times. Eateries have a limited seating capacity during this period, and it may be difficult to get a table without a reservation.
- Scan and check-in with SafeEntry and TraceTogether when entering and exiting the eatery.
- We recommend dining in small groups but if your groups are seated across different tables you are not allowed to inter-mingle. From 28 Dec 2020 onwards, groups of up to 8 may dine at the same table together. As this number may change, do keep up-to-date with the latest requirements.
- Keep your mask on over your nose and mouth anytime you aren’t eating, and put it back on once you’ve finished eating.
