Low international arrivals records in Singapore1 min read
Singapore witnessed record low foreign arrivals in 2021, but showed signs of recovery after instituting a quarantine waiver scheme for vaccinated tourists and issuing cash vouchers, according to the country’s tourism office on Tuesday.
According to research, Singapore had 330,000 overseas arrivals in 2021, the lowest amount since the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) began recording the figures in the 1970s. This was less than 2% of the pre-pandemic visitation count.
Revenue in 2021 is expected to be S$1.9 billion ($1.41 billion), one of the lowest on record. Singapore, on the other hand, had 19.1 million tourists and produced S$27.1 billion in revenue in 2019.
