In a newly expanded list of countries with travel restrictions imposed by the Singapore government on 13th March 2020, now including European coronavirus ‘hotspots’ Germany, Italy, France and Spain, Singapore Airlines has been forced to cancel a significant number of services to the region.

Airbus A380 services from Singapore to New York JFK via Frankfurt will also be suspended.


What changed?

Due to large outbreaks of coronavirus in these four countries, the Ministry of Health (MOH) announced that from 11.59pm on Sunday 15th March 2020 visitors from Germany, Italy, France and Spain will not be allowed to visit or transit through Singapore.

Singapore citizens, permanent residents and long-term pass holders with travel history to any of these countries in the last 14 days will be issued with a stay-home notice on arrival, and will therefore have to remain at home for 14 days after returning to Singapore.
