What are VTL Flights?

The VTL program, otherwise known as the Vaccinated Travel Lane scheme, was a program that allowed fully-vaccinated passengers from a select list of countries to travel to Singapore without the need to quarantine.

This scheme was introduced in August 2021 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic that began in 2020. Countries that were part of the VTL program included Germany, Brunei and Macao, as well as Malaysia, Italy, the UK, the US, Thailand, Turkey and many others. VTL flights were flights that departed from a country that was participating in the VTL scheme.

As of April 2022, the VTL scheme has been scrapped - this means that fully vaccinated travellers can visit Singapore from any airline and from any country without the need to quarantine upon arrival.

VTL Flights FAQs

What are VTL flights?

VTL stands for 'Vaccinated Travel Lanes'. It was a scheme implemented by Singapore in 2021 to allow fully-vaccinated travellers from select countries into Singapore without the need to quarantine, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. VTL flights are designated flights that carried these fully-vaccinated passengers into the country. You are no longer able to book VTL flights because the VTL scheme was scrapped in April 2022.

Where can I book a VTL flight?

VTL flights are no longer available to book anywhere, including on our site, because the program was terminated in 2022 - this was due to the reduced risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus. You can now travel to Singapore with any airline and from any country as long as you are fully vaccinated.

Why was the VTL scheme introduced?

The VTL scheme was introduced in 2021 to allow people to travel to Singapore without needing to quarantine for 2 weeks upon arrival. To be eligible for the scheme, passengers would need to be flying on a VTL-designated route with a VTL-approved airline and be fully vaccinated against the coronavirus.
