Flag carrier Vietnam Airlines is one of nine airlines to operate out of Terminal 4 at Changi International Airport in Singapore.

Currently, SIA operates 11 weekly flights from HCMC to Singapore and another 11 from Hanoi to Singapore. The carrier will offer two weekly flights from Singapore to HCMC, and one weekly flight to Hanoi, from January 13, using a 303-seat Airbus A350-900.

Flights to and from Da Nang are still suspended.

Tickets for flights between Vietnam and Singapore are available for sale through SIA’s various distribution channels.

Requirements to travel on SIA commercial flights to Vietnam include:

– Vietnamese passport holders can enter with a valid passport; prior approval is not required.

– All foreign nationalities must hold written approval from Vietnam Immigration Department and valid related documents including visa tag, temporary residence card or written approval from Vietnam Consular if they hold a passport of a diplomat. The above documents must be presented upon check-in. It is not necessary to submit these documents to SIA separately.

– Where specified, approvals may be city specific and not interchangeable. The passenger cannot use an approval from the Immigration Department to enter Hanoi to enter HCMC/Da Nang.

– All passengers (except children under two years old) must present a negative Covid-19 RT-PCR test certificate upon check-in. The test certificate must be in English and the test must be taken within three days before arriving in Vietnam.

Passengers transiting through Singapore must present a negative Covid-19 test certificate, which must be completed within 48 hours before the flight’s scheduled departure for Singapore. Therefore, passengers are advised to time their Covid test to meet both the entry and transit requirements set out above, whichever is stricter.
All passengers are required to make a health declaration on before arriving in HCMC and Hanoi. Upon entering Vietnam, passengers must install the PC-Covid app to perform health reporting and monitoring according to Vietnam regulations.

They are subjected to a rapid antigen test upon arrival at HCMC and Hanoi airports. The test costs are the responsibility of the passenger.
