Singapore Embassy in Bangkok

Singapore Embassy in Bangkok Welcome to the Official page of the Singapore Embassy in Bangkok. "Like" us to stay in touch with Singapore and with the work of the Embassy.

Singapore and Thailand share close historical ties dating back to the 13th century when Singapore and Siam were important nodes for international trade. His Majesty King Chulalongkorn made his first overseas visit as King to Singapore in 1871, and His Majesty had wisely said: “As Thailand and Singapore are neighbours, it would be advantageous if our countries are friends with each other.” Royal visits to Singapore continued under the reigns of His Majesty King Vajiravudh and His Majesty King Prajadhipok. His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej and Her Majesty Queen Sirikit continued this strong friendship and visited Singapore in 1950, 1951 and 1962. Over the years, Singapore and Thailand have built strong ties based on shared interests. Singapore and Thailand enjoy a warm and multi-faceted bilateral relationship. The close bilateral ties are reflected in exchanges at the highest political level, good cooperation among a wide range of agencies, and a high volume of people-to-people exchanges. Both countries cooperate closely bilaterally, as well as within ASEAN and in international fora. Economic links between Singapore and Thailand are strong. Defence ties are robust, and form another key pillar of the bilateral relationship. The Singapore-Thailand Enhanced Partnership (STEP), which was launched in 1997, provides the framework for the long-term strategic partnership between both countries. STEP comprises four pillars: enhanced economic co-operation, strong defence relations, people-to-people co-operation and the Civil Service Exchange Programme (CSEP). Under the CSEP, which comprises 13 cooperation clusters, both countries organise regular study visits and training programmes. There is extensive technical cooperation between Singapore and Thailand, including under the Singapore Cooperation Programme. In addition, under the Singapore-Thailand Third Country Training Programme (TCTP), both countries have jointly provided technical assistance to various countries, including Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam and Timor Leste. The TCTP is Singapore's first formalised partnership with a fellow ASEAN country.

Today, at least 90 otters live in Singapore. They have adapted well to our urban spaces. They live all over the island – from the farming area of Kranji in the north, to the Singapore Botanic Gardens, and even in the heart of Marina Bay.

The Singapore Embassy in Bangkok wishes everyone a happy Loy​ Krathong​ (วันลอยกระทง) festival! During this festival, krathongs (floating baskets) are released into rivers, canals, and ponds to thank the water goddess for her blessings. The floating away of the krathong also symbolises letting go of one's negative emotions and thoughts. In the past, krathongs were traditionally made out of banana tree trunks. Today, numerous innovative materials and designs are used to construct the krathongs. For example, these swan-shaped krathongs are made out of coconut husks.

28/10/2020
Ministry of Health, Singapore

Travellers from Thailand entering Singapore from 4 November 2020 can apply to serve their 14-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN) at their place of residence instead of at dedicated SHN facilities. This also applies to travellers from Estonia, Fiji, Finland, Japan, Norway, the Republic of Korea, Sri Lanka, and Turkey. To qualify, travellers from Thailand must not have travelled to any other country apart from those listed above in the last consecutive 14 days prior to entry into Singapore. Travellers from Thailand must also occupy their place of residence alone, or only with household members serving SHN with the same travel history and SHN duration.

Applications will open on 2 November 2020. Singaporeans and Permanent Residents may apply via https://safetravel.ica.gov.sg. All other travellers may apply as part of their entry approval process.

In addition, all travellers including returning Singaporeans and Permanent Residents staying at dedicated SHN facilities will be required to bear the cost of their stay from 1 January 2021. They will also be responsible for any inpatient medical bills should they develop COVID-19 symptoms within 14 days of arrival in Singapore. Singaporeans and Permanent Residents may tap on Government subsidies and their MediShield Life / Integrated Shield Plans to help pay for their bills.

Please refer to the Singapore Ministry of Health’s Press Release below.

The Multi-Ministry Taskforce regularly reviews our border measures to manage the risk of importation and onward local transmission from travellers.

With the enhanced surveillance regime in place, we will also adopt a risk-based approach and allow more travellers from Estonia, Fiji, Finland, Japan, Norway, Republic of Korea, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Turkey to opt out of dedicated SHN facilities and serve their 14-day SHN at their place of residence, if they fulfil the following criteria:

a. Travelled to no other country than above-mentioned countries, in the last consecutive 14 days prior to entry; and
b. Are occupying their place of residence (i.e. residential address) alone, or only with household members who are also persons serving SHN with the same travel history and duration of SHN.

Travellers from the abovementioned countries may apply to opt out of dedicated SHN facilities from 2 November 2020, for arrivals on or after 4 November 2020. All travellers who opt to stay at their place of residence for SHN must remain in their declared place of residence at all times. They will be subject to close monitoring of their whereabouts and strict enforcement action will be taken against those who breach the requirements of the SHN or make false declarations.

From 1 January 2021, all incoming travellers will also be required to pay for their stay at dedicated SHN facilities, and will be responsible for their inpatient medical bills if they have onset of symptoms of COVID-19 within 14 days of their entry to Singapore. This includes all returning Singapore Citizens/ Permanent Residents/ Long-Term Pass Holders travellers who last left Singapore before 27 March 2020.

Singapore’s border measures will evolve as the global situation changes. We will continue to monitor the global health situation closely and update our border measures in accordance with the public health risk assessment.

A smooth-coated otter family is usually made up of monogamous parents, subadults, and four to six pups. Smooth coated otters can eat up to 15-25% of their body weight each day. While they have a strong preference for fish, their diet varies depending on what is abundant and easier to catch. This could include frogs or even birds.

Did you know that smooth coated otters are native to Southeast Asia? And that Singapore is home to approximately 10 families of them! Our otters began returning to Singapore after we cleaned up our waterways. As you can see, they are extremely cute and photogenic. They were even featured in David Attenborough’s Wild City documentary in 2015, as well as BBC Earth’s Wild Cities in 2019.

Delivered a message at the High-Level Meeting to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the United Nations.

The UN has played a key role giving all countries, including small states like Singapore, a voice in the international system. It must remain relevant and fit for purpose, to address current and future global challenges, including pandemics, climate change, extremist terrorism, sustainable development and cybersecurity.

Singapore is committed to supporting the UN and the values and ideals of the UN Charter. I wish the UN a Happy 75th Birthday and every success in the years ahead. – LHL
