Coming back home just got simpler thanks to the now available real-time remote supervised self-swab pre-departure ARTs for returning Singapore residents. Read on for more details on the approved countries, test kits, and medical service providers.
We couldn’t be more excited about the latest local and Vaccinated Travel Framework developments. And while things are headed quickly towards Singapore’s goal of endemic-y, there are still a few protocols put in place to slow down the spread of the virus. Just recently, the government has approved the use of supervised video ART providers based in Singapore to carry out pre-departure virtually supervised ARTs for Singapore-bound travellers (this includes all travellers, except short-term visitors). So if you’re planning to travel soon, or you’re coming home from a trip, you’re at the right place. Here’s all you need to know about this convenient new feature.

✅ Time: set aside half an hour

✅ Identification Card or Passport
|Steps||1️⃣ Verify identity (hold IC or passport up to the camera)|
2️⃣ Show unopened ART kit and LOT number (i.e. the date when the test kit was manufactured; the kit’s LOT number should be reflected in all caps beginning with ‘LOT#’)
3️⃣ Swab supervisor will guide you through the test-taking
4️⃣ Wait for results (15 minutes)— You will need to leave the ART kit in view of the camera
5️⃣ Hold the test kit to the camera to show results (take a picture just in case)
