In a statement Singapore’s foreign ministry said, it is in discussion with Australia on introducing the possibility of an air travel bubble that allows residents to travel between the two countries without requiring them to be quarantined.
“Singapore is discussing with Australia the mutual recognition of vaccination certificates and resumption of travel with priority for students and business travellers,” said the ministry in a statement.
The Australian government did not immediately respond to requests for comments.
Singapore has brought down its COVID-19 infections under control and is keen to revive its travel and tourism industry. It has eased quarantine requirements for travelers from a handful of countries, including Australia and China, the source of the pandemic.
An air-travel bubble between Singapore and Hong Kong stalled last November following a resurgence of COVID-19 infections in the erstwhile British colony.
