Re: Standard mail transit time from USA to Singapore

I can't believe it took 49 days. After reading that I gave a follow up call. Mine has been 16 days out from North Dakota. They agreed to ship Fed Ex. That will most likely mean next Monday.

LESSON LEARNED. There is a reason that walk in DHL and FedEx locations are busy in Singapore.

Does your flight departing from Changi Airport SG require a Covid pre flight test?

After lots of asking and not finding an answer I stumbled upon one in a Singapore Airlines facebook post.

Follow this link to a government form to sign up and get approval, If applicable, for a pre flight Covid test and details.

Re: Emirates airlines pre flight Covid 19 testing Singspore

I no longer need this for Emirates now as I put reservation back on credit for a future date. I posted the link in another response but I am posting it here....

What will travel look like at Changi airport?

This summer high season saw very low flight passenger counts from Changi airport Singapore.

Gazing into the travel crystal ball what does the December through February Festive season look like for family visits from Changi?

Standard mail transit time from USA to Singapore

I am having a membership card replaced from the USA for one lost here in Singapore. They would only issue by standard mail. It was sent 15th of September. It is now the 25th if September and has not arrived. What is standard normal time? I would assume it has to go through customs.

Emirates airlines pre flight Covid 19 testing Singspore

Have a flight from Singapore on Emirates
They are requiring a pre flight Covid 29 test. It has to be a government approved outlet. Travel restrictions make test for travel hard to get.
