Update: 24th March 2022
Singapore will scrap its Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) scheme for arrivals from 1st April 2022, allowing fully vaccinated travellers to arrive on any flight operated by any airline from any country, without the need to quarantine on arrival.
You will still need to book designated VTL flights listed on this page if you are arriving before 11.59pm on 31st March 2022, but after that you can disregard the requirement, which is great news for more flexible travel.
Singapore has been progressively expanding its quarantine-free Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) scheme, originally started in September 2021 as a pilot programme from Germany, with a host of additional countries joining the eligible list since then.
It is now possible to travel from a range of countries and forgo any arrival quarantine or SHN period in Singapore itself, provided you are fully vaccinated and clear a pre-departure and on-arrival COVID-19 test.
Most VTL countries are accepting fully vaccinated Singapore residents with no quarantine, so this is a true selection of two-way travel opportunities to and from many countries.
Singapore has now opened VTLs with 30 countries, with two more upcoming arrangements, providing a wide range of options for quarantine-free travel including both regional and long-haul options.

VTL designated flights
One of the more complex (or at least annoying) parts of the VTL scheme is the requirement to travel only on designated flights between a VTL country and Singapore. This reduces risk, in the eyes of Singapore authorities at least, by ensuring that all passengers arriving on the scheme are not only tested before departure, but are also fully vaccinated.
It is also possible to transit in another VTL country from a non-designated flight, but your final leg to Singapore must still be on a VTL service.
For example, you can fly from Edinburgh, UK to Amsterdam, Netherlands on easyJet, then take a VTL-designated flight with KLM or Singapore Airlines non-stop to Singapore, and still benefit from quarantine-free arrival, if you meet the other VTL criteria.
