FRANCE 

International restrictions:

  • French citizens, permanent residents and nationals of the EU/ Schengen area and assimilated countries (Andorra, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Norway, San Marino, Switzerland, the Holy See and the UK) are authorised to enter the country only for specific reasons below, until at least 15 June:
    • Persons who have their main residence in France, and their spouses and children; persons in transit through France to their residence, and their spouses and children; Healthcare professionals for the purposes of combating COVID-19; transporters of goods, including sailors; crews and personnel operating passenger and cargo flights, or travelling as passengers to reach their departure base; personnel of diplomatic and consular missions, as well as international organisations headquartered or having an office in France, holding a special residence permit or a visa D “carte PROMAE”; cross-border workers at internal land borders. Details are available on the government website.
  • Land border checks have been put into place until 30 October. Filling in an INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL CERTIFICATE TO MAINLAND FRANCE is compulsory and can be downloaded in French or English here.
  • Following the extension of the state of emergency, all travellers, except for those arriving from the UK/Schengen area/European Union, face a 14-day compulsory quarantine and possible isolation when entering the country until further notice. Spanish travellers are subject to a 14-day mandatory quarantine, in a reciprocal move after Spain’s decision to quarantine all arrivals, including from the Schengen area. .
  • Eurostar services: While trains continue to operate from France to the UK and Belgium, they do so at a reduced capacity. Passengers must wear a face mask or any other type of face covering at the stations and on board.
  • Thalys services: All passengers are required to wear a face mask. From 9 June, the rail operator will increase train frequency, to five daily round trips between Brussels and Paris (except on Sundays), and more trains linking Amsterdam, Dortmund and Paris.

Internal restrictions:

  • A level-three emergency (on a three-tier scale) has been declared allowing for additional restrictions and measures to stem the spread of COVID-19. From 11 May, the first stage of relaxation of measures began nationwide, except for in Mayotte. The authorities have divided the country into two zones; a green zone where the risk and spread of the virus is lower, and a red zone where restrictions will be lifted more slowly to limit the spread of the virus. The red zone comprises Ile-de-France (including Paris), Hauts-de-France, Grand Est and Bourgogne-Franche-Comte regions.
  • Since 11 May, movements within 100km of one’s residence have been allowed without the need to fill in a certificate. Travel over 100km remains limited to essential business and family-related reasons: such movements need to be justified using a certificate available on the interior ministry’s website in both printable and digital formats.
  • The use of face masks by anyone aged over 11 years is mandatory on public transport, with offenders subject to a 135-Euro fine. In public places, the wearing of face masks is highly recommended. Further related measures may vary by location.
  • Gatherings of a maximum of ten people are now allowed.
  • Most businesses have reopened, but cafes, restaurants, nightclubs, ski resorts and all other non-essential businesses remain closed. Those travelling in Ile-de-France during rush hour periods require a certificate from their employer explaining that they cannot work from home.
  • Schools have been allowed to reopen progressively, subject to social distancing measures; no more than 15 students per class and ten children in nurseries. Wearing a face mask will be compulsory except for children under 3 years old. Universities will remain closed until the summer.
  • Nightly curfews remain in place in several cities, including in Compiegne, Creil and Nogent-sur Oise (all Hauts-de-France region).
  • While most airports remain open, several major airports are closed. Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) will remain open until further notice. Paris-Beauvais Airport (BVA) has announced a suspension of all commercial flights until further notice. Paris Orly Airport (ORY) is closed until further notice.(LINK)
  • Inter-city plane, train and coach services have been reduced.
  • Flights to the overseas departments and regions of Guadeloupe, Guyane, La Réunion, Martinique and Mayotte, Saint Barthelemy and San Martin have been reduced until 15 June.
  • Travellers arriving in La Reunion must quarantine for 14 days.
  • No cruise ships/passenger ships of over 100 people are allowed into the territorial waters of the French islands.

Relaxation of restrictions:

  • Public parks and secondary education institutions may reopen in green zones from 18 May. Libraries, bookstores and small museums are also set to reopen in both zones.

  • The SoE remains in place in the following prefectures: the capital Tokyo,
  • Chiba (all Kanto region), Hokkaido (Hokkaido region), Hyogo (all Kansai region), Kanagawa, Kyoto, Osaka and Saitama. Earlier, these prefectures were declared ‘special alert’ areas, where measures to contain the pandemic are focused. The measures include school closures and strongly promoting working from home or staggering commuting hours.
  • Under SoE, respective governors are allowed to order the closures of facilities such as schools, cinemas, departments stores as well as ban the gathering of large crowds. Essential services, such as medical facilities, pharmacies, supermarkets, convenience stores, factories, public bathhouses and restaurants, will continue to operate.
  • The authorities on 4 May announced gradual easing of restrictions on social and economic activities in prefectures not on ‘special alert’. Some businesses, such as restaurants and department stores that were temporarily closed resumed operations by taking social distancing measures and operating in shorter hours. Public transport such as busses, trains and taxis continue to operate, though a reduction in services can be expected.
  • Restrictions on social and economic activities will be eased in prefectures no longer under the SoE. Venues such as restaurants, department stores, museums and movie theatres will be gradually reopened on the condition that social distancing measures are in place.
  • Prior to the announcement of the state of emergency, the authorities had already requested* all people to avoid large gatherings and for those already in areas with an uptick in COVID-19 cases to stay inside their homes. While no nationwide directive to cancel events has been issued, event sponsors have been asked to consider whether events are necessary. It is expected that various public events and access to places such as entertainment places, national museums and sports stadiums will be suspended until further notice.

*If requests are not respected, mandatory restrictions will be implemented.

SINGAPORE

International restrictions:

  • All Long-Term Pass holders, as well as those who have been granted IPA for LTVP, who are planning to enter or return to Singapore must obtain the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority permission before they commence their journey to Singapore. They can do so by submitting their application for entry to ICA_nCoV_request@ica.gov.sg.
  • All travellers permitted to enter Singapore have to submit a health declaration form online before proceeding with immigration clearance.
  • All short-term visitors are not permitted to enter or transit through Singapore. The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) will only allow work pass holders who provide essential services to return to the country. At the current juncture, all work pass holders intending to return to Singapore need to obtain MOM’s approval prior to undertaking the journey.
    • British Airways BA15 and BA16 flights from London to Sydney have a specific arrangement with Singapore allowing flights to land in Singapore for refuelling. Passengers will not be allowed to leave the plane during this process.
  • All returning citizens, permanent residents and permitted work-pass holders are required to complete a 14-day self-isolation at a dedicated Stay-Home Notice (SHN) facility. They would be required to cover the costs of the stay. Exemptions may be allowed based on risk assessment of travel history, should the authorities face a higher number of returnees than expected. This is an expansion of prior SHN, targeting travellers from specific countries.
    • Chinese nationals with a long-term pass in Singapore may only fly into Singapore if their final destination is Singapore – they may not transit to another location via Singapore. They will be quarantined upon entry to Singapore.
  • The MOM will reject all new work pass applications for foreign workers from mainland China until further notice. Renewal applications for existing work pass holders will not be affected.
  • Singaporeans are advised to defer all travel abroad.

Internal restrictions:

  • Singapore has implemented internal measures effective until at least 1 June, under which non-essential movements will be discouraged and most offices will be required to establish work-from-home arrangements. Markets and supermarkets, clinics, hospitals, utilities, transportation and key banking services will remain open. Food establishments will also remain open, but for takeaway services only. Key economic sectors that are considered strategic or linked to the global supply chain will also remain open, but with stringent distancing measures.
  • Access to specific locations is limited based on dates of the month. While only four locations were targeted by these measures, targeted action will be taken to limit movement at popular areas, indicating similar restrictions may be imposed in the coming days. More details on the restrictions can be found on the National Environment Agency’s website.
  • So as to assist in contact tracing, those visiting popular malls and supermarkets are required to provide their contact details, while all workers permitted to enter their workplaces during the circuit-breaker measures are required to use a digital check-in application, SafeEntry. More details on SafeEntry’s deployment at workplaces can be found at the relevant government website.
  • It is mandatory for all to wear masks when in public, except those aged below two years old and those doing vigorous exercises. People who fail to do so will be fined, serious cases will be prosecuted in court.
  • All social gatherings of any size in public and private spaces are banned. Any offence will be punishable by a fine and in certain cases imprisonment. More details of the restrictions are available here.
  • All non-essential ‘large-scale’ events are cancelled.
  • Employers have been advised to strengthen their business continuity plans, including allowing employees to work from home. Stricter control measures, such as restricting the number of visitors, can also be expected to be imposed at healthcare facilities and schools.
  • From 5 May, ‘circuit breaker’ measures have been gradually eased; selected work places are permitted to reopen at limited capacity, depending on their level of essentiality. Traditional Chinese Medicine shops were allowed to operate from 5 May. From 12 May onwards, selected businesses such as home-based food operations, food manufacturers, barbers and laundry services will be allowed to resume operations at a limited capacity. There are plans for students to return to school in small groups from 19 May, where graduating cohorts will be prioritised. Social distancing measures will remain in place.
