We need SHN 7 day at home here for it to be useful but it is a start.
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!

Even SHN 14 day in your own home (not hotel) would be fine.

It's the hotel incarceration part that makes inbound quarantine such a sharp deterrent.

I was hoping they'd expand the list of allowable SHN (home) countries after ICA introduced the wearable bluetooth monitoring device, but unfortunately I don't see it happening.

I have a sneaky suspicions the Hoteliers association is lobbying the gahmen to keep Hotel Quarantine running as it's their only business right now.

Many things which seems absurd from the outside world, have a way of feeling perfectly normal in Singapore.

Meanwhile, some very positive news:
