Easier check-ins at venues with Vaccination-Differentiated Safe Management Measures (VDS)


Latest news

(Updated Aug 2021) Places where SafeEntry must be deployed


SafeEntry is the name of the national digital visitor registration system that logs the details and contact information of individuals visiting hotspots, workplaces of permitted enterprises, as well as selected public venues to prevent and control the transmission of COVID-19.

From 17 May 2021, contact tracing procedures will be further strengthened through the implementation of TraceTogether-only SafeEntry check-in, which replaces the previous SafeEntry check-in. Under TraceTogether-only SafeEntry, check-ins must be performed using the TraceTogether App or TraceTogether Token by:

  • Using one's TT App to scan the venue's QR code
  • Displaying one's TT Token so that a venue staff can scan the TT Token's QR code
  • Tapping one's TT App or TT Token at a SafeEntry Gateway device

Using this system allows businesses to verify user identity with data from Government sources to facilitate their contact tracing work should the need arise. SafeEntry by only the methods above is presently regarded as the appropriate procedure and control that enables or facilitates contact tracing for the purpose of meeting the safe management measures required by the law, save in circumstances where certain particular methods are required pursuant to specific restrictions or conditions.

From 17 May 2021, all workplaces that are allowed to be in operation (including offices, factories, etc.) must institute TraceTogether-only SafeEntry check-in, which will replace SafeEntry check-in, to log the check-in of their employees and contractors in order to meet the safe management measures required by the law.

The following list of venues must also institute TraceTogether-only SafeEntry check-in for customers, clients, students and visitors entering their premises in order to meet the safe management measures required by the law:1

  • Solemnisations and weddings
  • Funerary events
  • Funerary memorial events
  • Funeral parlours with wake halls
  • Schools and educational institutes
  • Preschools and student care centres
  • Healthcare facilities e.g. hospitals, clinics, TCM clinics, complementary healthcare facilities
  • Residential and community-based care facilities e.g. nursing homes, Senior Activity Centres, Senior Care Centres, Day Activity Centres for Persons with Disabilities
  • Vaccination centres, regional swab centres, quick test centres
  • Places of worship
  • Hotels and hostels
  • Banks and financial institutions
  • Retail, personal and food & beverage (F&B) services
    1. Malls
    2. Supermarkets2
    3. Large retail outlets (> 930 sqm or 10,000 sqft)3
    4. F&B outlets for dine-in customers
    5. Personal care services e.g. hairdressers / barbers, spas, beauty and wellness centres
    6. Facilities providing basic pet services (that do not function on a drop-off, pick-up basis)
    7. Showrooms
  • Wet markets and hawker centres4
  • Tuition and enrichment and training centres
  • Other training/class venues
    1. Outdoor exercise classes
    2. Sports and fitness centres, including gyms, studios
  • Country and recreation clubs
  • Registered premises of other member clubs/societies
  • Cultural and entertainment venues
    1. Libraries
    2. Museums, exhibitions
    3. Cinemas
    4. Ticketed attractions
    5. Other entertainment venues: amusement centres, computer game centres, board game centres, billiard saloons, paintball game centres, axe-throwing centres
  • MICE event venues (e.g. convention centres)
  • Government public service centres
  • Construction and marine process worksites
  • Cruises

Smaller retail outlets (i.e. ≤ 930sqm or 10,000sqft) where customers are unlikely to be in close proximity for a prolonged period of time, such as pharmacies, convenience stores and heartland provision shops are not required to implement SafeEntry for customers. Those that have voluntarily done so, should remove their SafeEntry check-ins.

For large office buildings that have multiple floors and/or house different business entities, check-in is required for each business entity and at each floor.

To better support contact tracing efforts involving street-hail trips, all taxi commuters should scan the SafeEntry QR codes deployed in taxis when taking street-hail trips.

For avoidance of doubt, all permitted enterprises and event organisers, must still adhere strictly to the other safe management measures, e.g. safe distancing.

To see the list of venues where SafeEntry Gateways should be deployed, please refer to this FAQ.

1 This list will be updated as more activities and services resume.

2 From 21 July 2021, supermarkets that are fully within malls and buildings covered by TraceTogether-only SafeEntry and have the same operating hours, are required to implement TraceTogether-only SafeEntry for customers, clients and visitors, in addition to employees and contractors.

3 Large retail outlets located inside buildings (e.g. malls or commercial buildings) that are already covered by TraceTogether-only SafeEntry and SafeEntry Gateway, will not be required to deploy both, if they have the same operating hours.

4 These premises will be informed by the National Environmental Agency and Housing Development Board.

TraceTogether-only SafeEntry to start from 17 May 2021


Implementation of TT-only SE

The implementation of TraceTogether-only SafeEntry (TT-only SE) will be brought forward to 17 May 2021 from the previously-announced 1 June 2021.

From 17 May 2021, TraceTogether-only SafeEntry (TT-only SE) will be implemented at all venues that experience higher throughput of visitors, and/or where people are likely to be in close proximity for prolonged periods. These include shopping malls, workplaces, places of worship, schools and educational institutions. This means that SE check-in must be performed using a TT App or Token by:

  1. using one’s TT App to scan the venue’s QR code;
  2. displaying one’s TT Token so that a venue staff can scan the TT Token’s QR code;
  3. tapping one’s TT App or TT Token at a SafeEntry Gateway device.

The full list of TT-only SE venues can be found here.

SafeEntry Gateway (SEGW) required to be deployed at more venues

From 15 June 2021, more public-facing venues where people are likely to be in contact for prolonged periods, such as food and beverage dine-in outlets, hotels, and sports and fitness centres, will be required to deploy SafeEntry Gateway (SEGW) to facilitate SE check-in, and help users check that their TT Token is working. The full list of venues required to deploy SEGW can be found here.

For more information, please see this press release.

Product updates

SafeEntry Gateway


The SafeEntry Gateway (SEGW) is a new check-in method that allows individuals to check in more quickly and seamlessly, and to verify that their TraceTogether (TT) Token is working as intended. It will be deployed as an additional mode of SafeEntry check-in. 

Businesses can choose to deploy SEGW in two ways:

  1. By downloading/upgrading the SafeEntry (Business) App to the latest.
  2. By registering for an SEGW Box (only for mandated venues).

For more information, please visit our FAQ here.

Help us Shape The Future of SafeEntry


We’d like your help shaping the future of SafeEntry. We’re always working to make improvements and add new capabilities, and your input helps us get it right.

As a business participating in our beta program, you will test and provide feedback on new versions of SafeEntry before we release them to the public.

With a BETA testing account, you will be able to access a test environment where you can try out your SafeEntry set up before it becomes live to the public.

As you try out the beta features, please understand that real-world testing will be happening concurrently; there might be the occasional bug or two, but your feedback is a huge part of helping us build a better SafeEntry.
