The unquarantine trip between Singapore-Singapore and South Korea will begin on November 15 for vaccinated travelers, the city-state Department of Transportation announced on Friday.

The two countries have agreed to launch a so-called “vaccinated travel lane” that allows vaccinated travelers to enter Singapore from South Korea and vice versa without providing quarantine. Instead, travelers should take the Covid-19 test to make sure they are not infected with the virus.

According to a press release, this is “the first of its kind between two major aviation hubs in Asia.”

Transport Minister S Iswaran said the travel arrangement would resume general travel between Singapore and South Korea after about 20 months of turmoil.

“This is another milestone in resuming Singapore’s borders and resuming air travel in a cautious and coordinated way,” says Iswaran.

As part of the agreement, travelers will be required to fly between Changi Airport in Singapore and Incheon International Airport in South Korea. Details will be announced shortly, according to the Ministry of Transport.
