Singapore to Tighten Border Controls With Guangdong Province

Singaporean authorities will tighten border controls for travelers coming from Guangdong, China, from June 5 due to a rise in coronavirus cases in the province.

Travelers from Guangdong will have to go through as much as 21-day quarantine, Singapore’s government said in a statement. Singapore citizens and other long-term passholders coming from the province will undergo a seven-day quarantine at their place of residence.

Those arriving from other parts of China will continue to take a coronavirus test at the airport. If the test comes up negative, the travelers don’t have to serve a stay-home notice.
