Singapore on Oct. 19 will begin allowing vaccinated U.S. residents to enter the country without quarantining. 

The eased restrictions are coming through Singapore's Vaccinated Travel Lanes (VTL) program, which will end the 14-day quarantine requirement for vaccinated passengers arriving on designated VTL flights. 

U.S. residents, however, still will have to get a Covid-19 PCR test within 48 hours of their flight's departure and also upon arrival at Singapore's Changi Airport. 

Singapore Airlines has designated its daily services from New York JFK, Los Angeles and San Francisco as VTL flights, plus twice-weekly seasonal service from Seattle that stops in Vancouver (Dec. 3 though Feb. 22).

The airline actually will operate the Seattle-Vancouver-Singapore service four times per week but only flights departing on Tuesdays and Saturdays will be VTL flights. 

Singapore Airlines has not designated the one-stop services that resume next month to Singapore from JFK via Frankfurt and to Singapore from San Francisco via Hong Kong as VTL flights. 

Travelers can use any available flight out of Singapore.
