Iran Daily - - Cultural Heritage & Environmen­t -

Sin­ga­pore has an­nounced the grad­ual re­open­ing of its tourism sec­tor from July 1, 2020. In the ini­tial phase, a num­ber of at­trac­tions will be al­lowed to re­sume op­er­a­tions.

Univer­sal Stu­dios Sin­ga­pore, Madame Tus­sauds, Sin­ga­pore Zoo, Bounce, Flower Dome at Gar­dens by the Bay, Jurong Bird Park, River Sa­fari, Zero La­tency, Art Sci­ence Mu­seum, S.E.A. Aquar­ium, and Sands Sky Park and Ob­ser­va­tion Deck will re­open their doors for vis­i­tors in the first phase, busi­nesstrav­ re­ported.

In the be­gin­ning, most at­trac­tions will be re­stricted to no more than 25 per­cent of their op­er­at­ing ca­pac­ity at one time, busi­nesstrav­ re­ported.

At­trac­tions and tour op­er­a­tors are re­quired to sub­mit their re­open­ing pro­pos­als to the Sin­ga­pore Tourism Board (STB) for as­sess­ment. Op­er­a­tors must demon­strate ef­fec­tive im­ple­men­ta­tion of safety mea­sures for tourists and work­ers and may re­sume op­er­a­tions only af­ter re­ceiv­ing ap­proval from the Min­istry of Trade and In­dus­try (MTI).

Keith Tan, chief ex­ec­u­tive, Sin­ga­pore Tourism Board said, “With tourism re­open­ing in a safe and grad­ual man­ner, STB’S key pri­or­ity will be to en­sure that tourism busi­nesses can pro­vide a safe and en­joy­able ex­pe­ri­ence for their guests and vis­i­tors.

“While it will be some time be­fore Sin­ga­pore can fully wel­come in­ter­na­tional vis­i­tors, we hope Sin­ga­pore­ans and res­i­dents of Sin­ga­pore will en­joy what our tourism busi­nesses have to of­fer, in a so­cially re­spon­si­ble way.”
