Transit is allowed

Border Type
Air
Description

Travelers are allowed to transit through Singapore’s Changi Airport.

Singapore does not require proof of negative COVID-19 test results, travel visas, or entry approvals for transit travelers with flights booked on the same itinerary in order to ensure their checked-in luggage can be tagged through from the origin airport to their final destination. Travelers with flights operated by different airlines on the same journey are accepted if the flights are made under the same booking. Travelers connecting through Changi Airport should consult with their airline for further details.

Travelers who intend on passing through arrival immigration to enter Singapore or travelers who booked separate flights under different itineraries which require them to enter Singapore to collect baggage and check in again for their connecting flight are not considered transit travelers. These travelers are responsible for ensuring they fulfill all requirements to enter Singapore.

Please check the source for more details.
