"Singapore and the Republic of Korea enjoy excellent bilateral relations, with strong people-to-people ties. I am pleased that both countries have agreed to jointly launch Vaccinated Travel Lanes that will re-open general travel between our two countries, which has been disrupted for the past 20 months," said Minister for Transport S Iswaran.
South Korea has joined both Brunei and Germany to established VTL with Singapore. This will gradually improve on the tourism sector, which is left hungry for the past 2 years. Vimo Services welcomes this marvelous news and hopes to serve South Koreans soon
