No COVID-19 testing required for air passengers on domestic routes

Passengers, including children, wishing to fly on domestic routes are no longer required to undergo a COVID-19 test at the airport even when they have not received a single vaccine dose.

Passengers on domestic air routes no longer need a COVID-19 test at the airport under new rules by the Ministry of Transport.

Passengers on domestic air routes no longer need a COVID-19 test at the airport under new rules by the Ministry of Transport.
 


The new rule laid down by the Ministry of Transport took effect as of January 22 which helps ease travel restrictions for passengers on domestic air routes.

The rule does not apply to passengers coming from the red zones or lockdown areas which are at a high risk of virus infection. Passengers coming from these areas are still required to undergo COVID-19 testing with the result coming back negative 72 hours before their departure.

For children living in the red zones or lockdown areas and wishing to fly on domestic routes, the Ministry of Transport has requested the Ministry of Health to give detailed guidance.

Under the new rule, the Ministry of Transport also no longer requires COVID-19 testing for domestic flight crew every seven days.

However, all passengers are still required to make a medical declaration on the PC-COVID application before their trip, and are responsible for their declared information.

Passengers are not allowed to board the plane when they have symptoms of a cough, a fever, shortness of breath, muscle aches, a sore throat, or loss of taste.
