Harbourfront Passenger Terminal resumed its ferry services between Singapore and the Indonesian islands Batam and Karimun on Jun 15. 

Passengers can choose to purchase round trips or one-way tickets from ferry operators such as Batam Fast Ferry, Horizon Fast Ferry, Majestic Fast Ferry, and Sindo Fast Ferry. Ticket prices range from $40 to $80. 

This will give passengers additional travel options, with Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal continuing its ferry operations to Batam and Bintan. 

To accommodate more passengers expected due to the resumption of ferry services, Singapore Cruise Centre has also improved its COVID-19 safety measures. 

For example, hospital-grade MERV-14 air filters are used to enhance air quality at Harbourfront Passenger Terminal. Disinfection robots have also been deployed at both Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal and Harbourfront Passenger Terminal to sanitise high-touch points in the vicinity. 

According to Singapore’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, fully-vaccinated international travellers are no longer required to take any pre-departure tests when entering Indonesia from May 18. 

However, international travellers who are partially vaccinated, not vaccinated, showing symptoms of COVID-19, or have a body temperature above 37.5 degrees Celsius are required to take an on-arrival polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test. 

Those who are not vaccinated at all or are only partially vaccinated are required to quarantine for five full days upon their arrival.
