Travellers who wish to apply for a pre-departure COVID-19 PCR test.
Travellers who have received approval to travel under Singapore’s Green/Fast Lane arrangements with other countries or who hold a My TravelPass under the Reciprocal Green Lane (RGL) with Malaysia need not apply as they are already eligible to book a pre-departure test as part of the RGL approvals.
