SINGAPORE – Cross-border travel for essential business and official purposes between Singapore and Indonesia is set to resume, with travel applications to start on 26 October.

In a statement on Monday (12 October), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) said that negotiations between the governments of both countries on the establishment of a Reciprocal Green Lane (RGL) have concluded. The RGL will also be referred to by Indonesia as the Travel Corridor Arrangement (TCA), the MFA said.

“The RGL/TCA will enable cross-border travel for essential business and official purposes to resume between both countries. The eligible applicants for the RGL/TCA are Indonesian citizens as well as Singapore citizens and residents,” the MFA said. “These travellers will have to abide by the 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 tests from mutually recognised health institutions.”

Applications for the RGL/TCA will open on 26 October and “travel will commence soon after”. “Operational details of the RGL/TCA including the procedural requirements, health protocols, and application process will be announced in due course,” the ministry added.
