Mr Chua Kheng Wee Louis asked the Minister for Transport whether the Government will consider (i) calibrating current Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) quotas by country and its rationale for doing or not doing so and (ii) setting separate sales caps and quotas for VTL (Land) as compared to VTL (Air) quotas.
Mr S Iswaran: We have implemented quotas for the Vaccinated Travel Lanes (VTLs) as a safeguard to manage the public health risk.
For VTL (Air), the quota is allocated to airlines operating flights from VTL countries based on the plans they submit. The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) manages the quota allocation for each country and airline dynamically based on demand, and the total will be kept within the overall quota.
For VTL (Land) with Malaysia, the quota is set separately from VTL (Air) and is based on the number of designated buses entering each country per day.
