It further stated that it is working with its Malaysian counterpart to facilitate easy cross-border travel between Singapore and Malaysia, allowing workers from both sides of the border to reunite with their families.

According to The Straits Times, about 1,440 people are expected to be able to travel between Johor and Singapore in the first week of the implementation of the land VTL.

The total daily quota of arrivals into Singapore from all eligible countries via the Vaccinated Travel Lane scheme is currently 10,000.

Under Singapore's VTL scheme, people who are fully vaccinated are able to travel into Singapore on designated flights, and take COVID-19 tests in lieu of serving quarantine or stay-home notice.
