UPDATE A few weeks ago, Singapore and Hong Kong reached an in-principle agreement to establish a two-way Air Travel Bubble (ATB). This will allow travel between both cities without quarantine. There are conditions that travellers will have to adhere to, however, including testing negative for Covid-19.
An official date has now been set: the air travel bubble between Singapore and Hong Kong will start on November 22. The Ministry of Transport announced that there will be one flight a day and a limit of 200 travellers – but this arrangement will increase to two flights a day into each city from December 7.
Anyone who has stayed 14 days in either city, regardless of age and nationality, will be eligible to travel freely. The announcement has already seen the cost of air tickets between Singapore and Hong Kong jump by about 40 per cent upon the announcement of the 'travel bubble'.
Here's everything you need to know – and what you can and cannot do when the 'travel bubble' is established.
