What is Pre Departure Swab Test?

The pre-departure Covid-19 test refers to the test travelers take so that they can present results to airline staff at the airports.

If you are planning to travel, you should first confirm your eligibility to enter the country according to their updated border regulations. Information on country-specific travel regulations is available on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Singapore) website, International Air Transport Association (IATA) Travel Centre, as well as the official websites of related ministries in the country you are planning to travel to.


If you are travelling via the Vaccinated Travel Lane, you will have to book designated VTL flights only. This varies according to the different travel requirements for different countries.


For example, you do not need a designated VTL flight when travelling from Singapore to Germany. However, if you are returning to Singapore from Germany, you will have to book a designated VTL flight. As such, please check the travel guidelines based on the different countries.


You can check out the requirements of flying to a VTL country on this website.
