JUST IN: Taiwan Is Considering A Travel Bubble With Singapore


Faruq Senin •  Mar 18, 2021

Just a few days ago, it was announced that a travel bubble between Singapore and Australia is in the works for July. Just today (18 Mar 2021), Taiwan announced that it’s considering a travel bubble with Singapore. With Taiwan’s scenic nature, night markets, bubble tea and more, it sounds like just the perfect spot to visit to cure your travel blues.

Singapore has unilaterally opened its borders to travellers from Taiwan since 18 Dec 2020. Currently, they are exempted from quarantine but they are required to take a Covid-19 test upon arrival. Hence, Singapore is hoping that Taiwan will reciprocate its move and open its borders to Singaporeans.

The only country that Taiwan has formed a travel bubble with now is Palau, a country in the Pacific. It has kept a record of zero Covid-19 cases. And travellers are only allowed to travel in groups.

While Taiwan is also in talks of a possible travel bubble with Japan, South Korea and Vietnam, its transport ministry mentioned that Singapore has been the most proactive in negotiations.

While there is no concrete timeline as of now, we hope that more details of the Singapore-Taiwan travel bubble will come soon! We’re also hoping for more countries to form a travel bubble with Singapore ? For our Malaysian and Indonesian readers, don’t fret! If you're itching to travel overseas, there have been talks of a possible Langkawi-Indonesia travel bubble.
