With the new announcements following a speech by PM Lee on 24 March 2022, it looks like life is inching back to normal. From the extension of F&B's operating hours to the lifting of VTL restrictions for the vaccinated, Singapore is ready to welcome the world.

It looks like sentiments are quite similar overseas, with countries opening up and doing away with quarantine and compulsory testings on arrival. A couple of countries have even removed any restrictions for the vaccinated completely. The tourism industry is set for pickup, and it's no surprise that prices of flight tickets are already increasing as we speak.

If you're thinking of travelling from Singapore, we've shortlisted five countries that are slightly easier to plan a leisure trip to.

Denmark

Even though Denmark has fallen to position two on the World's Happiest Countries index, it's still the tranquil, modern, and peaceful country in a fairytale setting. Better still if you're a museum and art enthusiast – the country provides plenty of options for creatives.

Good news for fully vaccinated international travellers: you are no longer required to take a test or serve quarantine to enter the country. All you need is documented proof of a full vaccination taken within 270 days for a two-dose vaccine, or 284 days for a single-dose vaccine, or proof that you have been revaccinated with the third dose. Additionally, travellers who can prove that their past infection occurred more than 11 days but within 180 days will receive the same courtesy.

Singaporeans have missed the shopping we can do just across the expressway, but the recent development means vaccinated travellers can now travel freely between Malaysia and Singapore without quarantine.

Nothing looks more like a vacation than Maldives, the idyllic archipelago in the Indian Ocean. Let your soul take a rest on the island.

As of now, the country with more than 1,200 islands is receiving vaccinated travellers without the need to quarantine. A negative PCR certificate issued no more than 96 hours prior to departure is still required for all passengers, plus a Traveller Health Declaration 24 hours before departure.

The beautiful country of dramatic fjords, incredible hikes and Northern lights, Norway reconnects you to Mother Nature.

Most Scandinavian countries have removed regulatory measures against COVID-19, including the requirement to wear a face covering, keep a 1-metre distance, and isolation when you are sick. In Norway, there are no requirements for testing, quarantine or registration upon arrival from 12 February 2022.

Switzerland

Like what Tripadvisor has said — it’s hard to feel neutral about Switzerland, with its glittering lakes, sky-high peaks, postcard-perfect villages, world-class museums. And cute Swiss cows and cheeses.

Being one of the earliest country to have an agreement with Singapore to open up borders, Switzerland has welcomed leisure visitors for a couple of months now. Entry from Schengen, EU and EFTA is possible without restrictions and Singapore is on that list.
