Vaccinated Singaporeans Can Visit Australia Again Now

November 20, 2021

Singaporeans can visit Australia again now; they were given the green light. Quarantine-free travel to Australia for inoculated Singaporeans will restart on November 21st.

Tourism Australia’s new campaign to welcome Singapore nationals back will begin on November 12th with the release of “We’re Excited to Welcome You Back.”

It’s a warm-hearted invitation that boasts eye-catching destination imagery of the participating jurisdictions of New South Wales (NSW), Victoria, plus the Australian Capital Territory (ACT).

Australia Keen for Singaporeans to Come Visit

The Tourism Australia Regional General Manager South and South-East Asia Brent Anderson said he hoped Singaporeans would make the most of the new quarantine-free travel arrangements and enjoy being among the first international travelers that are once again welcome in Australia from the November 21st.

Brent Anderson said, “As one of our largest inbound markets, we have long held strong tourism ties with Singapore, so we are really excited to be welcoming this market back. Australia has long been a popular travel destination for Singaporeans, who spent $1.53 billion on their travels here in 2019. With two-way quarantine-free travel now available, it’s never been a better time to holiday in Australia.”

He added, “Australia has long been the most popular international destination for Singaporean tourists with over 80% repeat visitation. Australia’s relative isolation from the rest of the world, coupled with its sparsely populated land and natural wonders, has never been more precious and desirable, and we hope Singaporeans will jump on the opportunity to fall in love with Australia all over again.”

As part of Tourism Australia’s campaign, several key distribution partners are involved in prompting as many bookings as possible and helping Australia’s tourism industry bounce back. Some of the partners are Chan Brothers, CheapTickets.sg, Dynasty Travel, Klook, and UOB Travel will deliver tactical offers to make Singaporeans want to travel to Australia.

Besides, Singapore Airlines and Qantas are also partnering with Tourism Australia to foster the recovery of the airline sector and restart services to Australia in the following months as quarantine-free travel to Australia restarts.
