Notice dated 20 Jan 2020
To protect against the risk of importation and transmission of yellow fever in Singapore, all travellers, including Singapore residents, arriving in Singapore from countries with risk of yellow fever transmission (i.e. wholly or partly endemic for yellow fever) are reminded that they are required to have a valid yellow fever vaccination certificate. Otherwise, they are liable to be quarantined under Section 31 of the Infectious Disease Act, for up to six days upon arrival in Singapore. Non-residents who refuse quarantine will be turned away and returned to his/her place of origin or last port of embarkation.
This is consistent with the World Health Organization's recommendations in the International Health Regulations (IHR 2005).
The International Certificate of Vaccination for yellow fever is only considered valid 10 days after vaccination and the validity lasts for the life of the person vaccinated.
Please ask your doctor to review your suitability for the yellow fever vaccine.
Please visit ICA for more information on Singapore's yellow fever vaccination requirement.
