Too early. Only started yesterday. I came in as Cat 1 from Taiwan which is similar and it was tedious but ok. SHN until you clear the swab... keep in mind if you're positive result it will be a definite disruption.

Apparently around 250 travelers arrived via the VTL yesterday, perhaps one of them is active on the forum and can answer. I will say that I’m ecstatic about this, the easing of requirements makes it so much easier (and cheaper) to travel as a family.

Has anyone successfully applied for the VTL pass. My daughter is having problem uploading the NHS vaccination certificate. Emailed ICA and I tried to call helpline but only recorded message to say high call volume and please call later.

Any tips will be much appreciated. Thanks

Unfortunately there’s not much more you can do. Try calling again or send a follow-up email.

Well she doesn’t have to upload the certificate. She does need to upload the two QR codes from the app via screenshot. Do it as two separate screenshots.

Wow, I had no idea QR codes were even a thing. Are they printed on the fax certs?

Yep but she needs to use the digital codes from the NHS app i think. That’s what I did anyway.

I see, had no idea this was even a thing. Sometimes I forget that Tracetogether is unique to Singapore.

It is a Singapore app and only works here. But most EU countries have a similar apps either optional or mandatory to use, depending on local requirements, that do the contact tracing, and help you to provide either vaccine certificate or recent covid test results as needed. Carrying a paper copy is an option too in some countries but obviously not that practical.
https://ec.europa.eu/info/live-work-tra ... ificate_en

Also Singapore government does issue digital (QR code included) Covid vaccination certificates, that's what you need to travel in most countries, and that can be submitted to EU countries system to get the local certificate that scanners there at restaurants etc can read.
You can get those easily at www.notarise.gov.sg

After registering it to one of the EU countries, you can add it to your phones wallet app; like iphones Apple wallet or yourwallet on android.

The good thing is that when you register it in one country, it's valid for all EU and some other 18 countries who have adopted the same standard/system, makes it a bit smoother. Was quite straight forward, took less than 15 min to do online, and no charges.
