SINGAPORE – Cross-border travel between Singapore and Indonesia for essential business and official purposes is about to resume, with travel applications opening on 26 October.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) issued a statement on Monday (October 12) saying that the negotiations between the two governments on the establishment of a reciprocal green channel (RGL) have come to an end. The RGL will also be known as the Travel Corridor Arrangement (TCA) by Indonesia, the foreign ministry said.
“The RGL/TCA will enable the resumption of cross-border travel between the two countries for essential commercial and official purposes. Eligible applicants for the RGL/TCA are citizens of Indonesia as well as citizens and residents of Singapore.” “These travelers must adhere to COVID-19 prevention and public health measures mutually agreed by both countries, including pre-departure and post-arrival COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) swab testing by mutually recognized health agencies.”
RGL/TCA applications will open on 26 October and “travel will begin shortly”. “Details of the operation of the RGL/TCA, including procedural requirements, health protocols and application process, will be announced in due course,” the ministry added.
