Singapore Cruise Centre Resumes Ferry Services from
HarbourFront Passenger Terminal
SINGAPORE, 9 June 2022 – Regional ferry services will resume at HarbourFront Passenger Terminal from 15 June 2022 for sea travels to the Indonesia islands of Batam and Karimun. Singapore lifted its Covid-19 travel restrictions in April 2022 and the Indonesian authorities announced on 18 May 2022 the lifting of pre-departure test requirements for all travellers regardless of their vaccination status.
Passengers who wish to purchase tickets to Batam and Karimun islands from HarbourFront Passenger Terminal can contact the regional ferry operators (Annex 1) that sail to Batam and Karimun islands from Singapore.
Mr Lee Seng Chee, Chief Executive Officer of Singapore Cruise Centre said, “We have made preparations for the opening of HarbourFront Passenger Terminal since May 2022 and we are excited about the resumption of ferry services at the HarbourFront Passenger Terminal from 15 June 2022.”
With the resumption of regional ferry operations at HarbourFront Passenger Terminal, Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal will continue to operate to Batam and Bintan islands. With both terminals in operation, passengers have different choices of terminal location to travel to and from these islands.
Over the past few months, Singapore Cruise Centre has stepped up safety measures and added layers to its existing Covid-19 defences, to keep passengers and visitors safe and to protect seaport workers. HarbourFront Passenger Terminal has also enhanced its air quality with the use of hospital grade MERV-14 filters.
Singapore Cruise Centre has also deployed disinfection robots at Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal and HarbourFront Passenger Terminal to sanitise high touch-points for a safer and cleaner environment.
