Guidelines for self quarantine

Guidelines for self quarantine

21 June, 2020

Everyone arriving in the country is required to go through the mandatory quarantine period for a minimum of 14 days.

So far, this has been at the government-approved quarantine facilities (which include private hotels and government institutions).

Self-quarantine at home has been permitted for those who have a recent negative COVID-19 PCR test result (done within the last 7 days prior to arrival) who  meet the following criteria:
1. Age (5 years and below, or 60 years and above)

2. Chronic physical or mental illness (for which they are on treatment or recovering from)

3. Pregnancy

4. Living with disability

5. Primary caregiver travelling with someone who fits the above criteria

6. Unaccompanied minors (children aged 17 years and below travelling alone)

7. These criteria have been reviewed to consider arrivals who demonstrate the ability and commitment to observe the home quarantine regulations may be allowed to self-quarantine at home. These cases are reviewed on a case by case basis.

A recent negative COVID-19 PCR test (done within the last 7 days prior to arrival) is required for entry into the country, and the 14 day mandatory quarantine period applies to all arrivals.
