Some UK travellers face hurdles entering Singapore under VTL scheme

Some travellers from the United Kingdom are facing difficulties entering Singapore under its vaccinated travel lane (VTL) scheme
due to certain gaps in the system.

Most สล็อตxo have different bonuses. Most online casinos allow players to sign up and enjoy certain bonuses without a deposit. 

The VTL scheme, which allows quarantine-free travel to Singapore, was expanded to the UK in early October. Travellers must
fulfil certain conditions, such as being fully vaccinated if they are above 12 years old and having an officially recognised proof
of vaccination.

However, those aged 13 to 15 are unable to obtain vaccinated travel passes (VTPs) to enter Singapore because they do not
have a National Health Service (NHS) COVID Pass proving one’s vaccination status. The UK government only issues these to
people aged 16 and above.

Such is the conundrum for Ms Helen Koh's family – specifically, her niece, 15, and nephew, 13, both of whom are long-term
pass holders attempting to return to Singapore to reunite with their father after spending two years apart.

“They are fully vaccinated (with both doses of Pfizer-BioNTech). You’re just wanting, insisting on a pass that’s not available
in their own country, so we don’t know what to do,” said Ms Koh, 48.

“If (authorities want to) only recognise NHS COVID Pass from the UK as a legitimate platform to verify or certify vaccination
status, it’s no problem … But they must understand where is the coverage," she said. 

Ms Koh added that the situation is paradoxical because unvaccinated children aged below 12 are allowed to board these VTL

“Why penalise the children between 13 to 15 who are vaccinated? We don’t see the logic.”
