Free entry for visitors to Sentosa from March 14 to June 30 amid COVID-19

Sentosa will be waiving entry fees for visitors from March 14 to the end of June, said Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC) on Wednesday, March 11. 

The move was aimed at attracting local visitors, as well as to support businesses amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

SDC added that the measure is an extension of an earlier plan to waive admission fees for all visitors during the March school holidays.

At the moment, those who walk into Sentosa via the Sentosa Boardwalk are not required to pay admission fees. However, from March 14 to June 30, those entering Sentosa by car or the monorail service at VivoCity will have their island admission fees waived.

In addition, businesses operating in Sentosa will also be granted rental deferments. This is to “enhance support” following feedback on business sentiment, said SDC.

Businesses can defer 50 per cent of their rental payments from April to June “where applicable”. SDC added in a press statement that the deferred rental may be paid in interest-free installments over a 12-month period. 

The resort has seen a 20 per cent to 50 per cent drop in visitor numbers and sales since early February. “Both the island admission waiver and rental deferment take into account requests and inputs shared by island partners,” said SDC. ​
