All travellers serving a 21-day SHN will undergo COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests on-arrival, on day 14 of their SHN, and before the end of their 21-day SHN period.

With immediate effect from Monday, 14 June 2021, travellers entering Singapore from Fiji will have to serve a 21-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN) at dedicated SHN facilities. This comes in light of the "worsening" COVID-19 situation in the Fiji, the Multi-Ministry Taskforce announced on Monday. 

Previously, travellers from Fiji needed to serve 14 days at a dedicated SHN facility, and an additional seven days at a place of residence or self-sourced accommodation.

The Taskforce noted: "Travellers who have not completed their 14-day SHN at dedicated SHN facilities by 16 June 2021, 2359 hours, will be required to serve the additional seven days at their current dedicated SHN facility. These travellers will be contacted regarding the additional costs to be paid."

At the same time, travellers who are currently serving their SHN at a place of residence or self-sourced accommodation will be required to complete their 21-day SHN at their current location, to minimise movement and risk of transmission.

Meanwhile, effective 16 June, 2359 hours, travellers entering Singapore from Israel will only have to spend 14 days at a dedicated SHN facility, and the remaining seven days of SHN at their place of residence or self-sourced accommodation. Prior to this, travellers from the country were subject to the full 21 days at an SHN facility.

Overall, the Taskforce shared that all travellers serving a 21-day SHN will undergo COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests on-arrival, on day 14 of their SHN, and before the end of their 21-day SHN period.
