VTL: Vaccinated Travel Lane. An arrangement for fully-vaccinated people to travel for leisure without serving a SHN in Singapore upon their return, but in place, undergo a series of PCR tests. Currently, Germany and Brunei are included in this scheme.
VTP: Vaccinated Travel Pass. Issued to eligible fully-vaxxed short-term visitors or holders of long-term passes who are entering Singapore on the VTL.
ATP: Air Travel Pass. Short-term visitors travelling from certain countries/regions have to apply for the ATP — at the time of writing, Hongkong, Macao, Mainland China and Taiwan are in the list. Upon arrival in Singapore, they’re required to self-isolate until they receive their negative PCR results, among other requirements.
RGL: Reciprocal Green Lane. A dual-way safe travel arrangement where eligible travellers can travel between Singapore and an RGL country/region for short-term essential business and official purposes. Upon return to Singapore, they must serve SHN or self-isolate, depending on where they’ve travelled to.
PCA: Periodic Commuting Arrangement. A travel arrangement between Singapore and Malaysia to facilitate movement of workers between both countries. Travellers must remain in their country of employment for 90 days or more, and are subject to SHN and tests upon arrival in Singapore.
