Coronavirus Cases Surge Across the Globe

Singapore will require foreigners seeking to work, study or reside in the country to be vaccinated, as the business hub tightens some restrictions to prepare for an “inevitable” omicron wave.

From Feb. 1, applicants who wish to work on a long-term basis or permanently live in the city-state, as well as those looking to renew existing employment visas, will have to be inoculated against Covid-19, the health ministry said in a statement Sunday. Exemptions will be granted for children below 12 and those medically ineligible for the shots.
