A travel insurance policy is required for all non-vaccinated travelers to Singapore. With that said, travel insurance with Covid coverage is strongly recommended by the Government of Singapore to all visitors looking to enter the country. Travelers seeking entry into Singapore should find medical coverage for at least S$30,000 that protects them from any Covid-19-related expenses. This number is based on bill sizes at private hospitals in Singapore.
Travelers are required to have travel medical coverage with at least $30,000 to visit Singapore, however, Squaremouth recommends a policy that offers Emergency Medical coverage with at least $50,000 for international destinations. Squaremouth also recommends travelers have at least $100,000 of Emergency Evacuation coverage as well. All medical policies through Squaremouth offer both Emergency Medical and Emergency Evacuation coverage.
Many travelers visiting Singapore have high prepaid and nonrefundable trip costs. Due to these high trip costs, along with the required medical benefits, Squaremouth recommends travelers purchase a policy with Trip Cancellation coverage. This benefit can reimburse 100% of the traveler’s prepaid and nonrefundable trip expenses if they need to cancel for a covered reason, such as unforeseen illness or injury. Travelers can also be covered under this benefit if they contract Covid-19 before leaving for their trip.
Squaremouth also recommends the Travel Delay benefit providing coverage for the significant travel involved getting to Singapore. Travelers can be covered up to 150% of the trip costs if their flight is delayed, and they miss out on a portion of the trip. It also can cover other reasonable expenses such as food and hotels, as well as required quarantines because of Covid-19.
The most common traveler concern is having to quarantine at their destination. The Travel Delay benefit can typically provide $150 to $200 per day for all covered travelers for required quarantine expenses such as accommodations and food. It can also provide reimbursement for rebooking a different flight home.
