NEW DELHI: Certain categories of travellers from India will have to undergo Covid test before leaving for Singapore as a negative report will be needed to enter the city-state from September 17.

Singapore’s health ministry on Wednesday took this decision due to the “resurgence of infections in India” and the city state seeing “a significant number of imported cases with recent travel history to India.”

“To reduce the risk of importation of cases from India, travellers who are not Singapore citizens or permanent residents and who have recent travel history to India within the last 14 days prior to entry will be required to take a COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test within 72 hours before departure. Travellers will need to present a valid negative COVID-19 test result as a condition of approval to enter Singapore… from September 17, 2020, 00:00 hours, and will apply on top of the existing requirements of a 14-day stay-home notice (SHN) at dedicated SHN facilities and a negative COVID-19 test before the end of their SHN,” Singapore health ministry website said in an update titled “requiring pre-departure tests (PDT) for travellers from India”.

It's risky that anything done outside Singapore can be fake. Be prepared for this to happen. Don't take chances and too complacent n lax. Only way is to deport them upon arrival to Singapore if they are tested positive. Don't cares whether they are PR or not. Citizens can be accepted as there is no choice.

As a virus hotspot, they should be tested before departure and upon arrival in Singapore, and thereby tested everyday for the entire duration of their stay and be made to foot the cost of the tests and quarantine.

If the cost and inconveniences doesn't deter them, the daily poking may.

when I returned from overseas in end April, no tests were performed to all arriving passengers and during 14-day hotel quarantine no temperature was measured...very shocking!

Just follow Malaysia, swift and decisive. Suspend traveler entering Singapore from India.
May not be a popular choice but definitely a safe option for singapore.
