Hire Singapore Government Agencies for Non-Citizens

Business trips to Singapore are possible again under certain conditions

Corresponding guidelines were published by the government of the city-state on Friday after both countries agreed on the introduction of a so-called "Reciprocal Green Lane" on October 23, a mutual "green travel corridor".

The “Green Lane” agreement applies exclusively to non-stop flights between Germany and Singapore, for example with Lufthansa or Star Alliance partner Singapore Airlines. Travelers who want to undertake important business and official trips from Germany to Singapore as part of the “Green Lane” regulation must present a compulsory “Safe Travel Pass”.

Invitation and PCR tests necessary

In order to obtain such a "Safe Travel Pass", travelers must first be invited by a Singapore-based company or government agency. Applicants do not necessarily have to be German citizens, but they must officially prove their place of residence in Germany and have stayed in Germany at least 14 days before departure.

After the invitation, the Singaporean company will apply for the Safe Travel Pass to the local authorities on behalf of the applicant. If the application is approved, the journey can begin. However, before leaving Germany, visitors must prove a negative PCR test, which must not be older than 72 hours.

Upon arrival in Singapore, travelers are required to re-PCR test. The hosting company or government agency must transport travelers directly from the airport to the specified accommodation in compliance with applicable health regulations. There travelers have to wait in isolation until the test result is announced. If the test is negative, the business trip in Singapore can begin according to a previously submitted program.

Further details of the agreement and official application forms can be found online. You can find the corresponding link here.
