Victorian entering Singapore under quarantine

Post by cmcutchen » Sat, 22 Aug 2020 10:54 am

Hi All,

looking for the following information and some feedback if you have ANY experience.

- I am from Victoria, Australia arriving to Singapore on September 19th . Is there any hope that I will have the ankle bracelet option and get to stay in my apartment?
- If I stay in hotels, do I share a ROOM ?
- Will there be WIFI and what hotels are on the list?
- If I have my Employment Pass, do I still need to do quarantine for the 14 days?

Thanks, it is very difficult to get information on the conditions before I leave and there is always gossip or rumours floating around.
Thanks - stay safe!

At this stage you have to stay in a Govt facility. Victoria is your problem.
- If I stay in hotels, do I share a ROOM ?

No experience but I know indirectly of someone who went through this. Hotel was fine, had wifi and didn't share a room. Food not so good and the boredom factor was high, your mileage my differ.
- If I have my Employment Pass, do I still need to do quarantine for the 14 days?
Yes. Again Victoria is your problem.

Best thing one could hope for (also generally) is for Victoria infections to drop like a rock for the next 3-4 weeks & they might reenable home quarantine.

They're even reducing from 14 to 7 days quarantine for Australia arrivals, sans Victoria. Too easy.
