BIIA members and industry experts attending the BIIA conference should take note of the greatly eased travel schemes. For details please click here.
All vaccinated travellers can enter Singapore without quarantine from April 1, no need for VTL flights. The new travel scheme, named the Vaccinated Travel Framework, will replace the existing Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) scheme.
Here is a short summary:
Important: All Short Term Visitors are required to prepare an electronic or physical copy of their insurance policy to bring with them to facilitate their entry into Singapore.
Fully vaccinated travellers do not require any entry approvals to enter Singapore; this means that travellers who were required to apply for vaccinated travel passes no longer need to do so. The air travel pass required as part of Singapore’s unilateral opening to Macau, China and Taiwan will no longer be required as well.
– Fully vaccinated travellers will still be required to take a pre-departure test within two days before departing for Singapore and obtain a negative test result. But they will no longer need to take any Covid-19 tests after arrival in Singapore.
Designated flights and quotas
– Fully vaccinated travellers can enter Singapore on any flights without having to serve quarantine from April 1. There will no longer be any quotas applied on daily arrivals.
– Travellers will be able to show all vaccination certificates regardless of place of issuance as proof of vaccination. These certificates are not required to be digitally verifiable. Children aged 12 years and below are exempted from the vaccination requirement, in line with domestic measures.
Singapore Arrival Card
– The existing SG Arrival Card will be simplified such that they can be completed easily. Travellers will just need to submit their personal particulars, vaccination status and health declaration.
About the BIIA 2022 Biennial Conference
Our conference program, which will focus on ‘the customer relationship in a data-driven digital world’, will explore the use of increased data, new analytics and new technology in managing the new realities.
Why should you come to Singapore? Well in our view there are more than 30 reasons why you should. This is the number of senior industry experts that will be speaking at the event representing both our customers as well as information providers. After more than two years since we last met there is a lot of catching up to do, both about what is happening with customers and in our industry.
As in the past BIIA biennial conferences we are expecting approximately over 150 delegates from over 50 countries, representing business information, credit bureaus, financial services providers, regulators, and academics to attend the conference making it a truly global event.
The conference will be opened by Mrs. Ong-Ang Ai Boon, Director, at the Association of Banks in Singapore (ABS) – our supporting partner for the event. The ABS is supporting the conference with key-note speakers/panelist to provide a user perspective from the banking sector.
Our knowledge partner Forrester Research is providing a key-note on the topic of ‘Maintaining trust in information services in a growing digital world’.
Other key topics are:
‘How to maintain trust in a growing digital open data world’
