Travel Alerts

AIG continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation and its ongoing impact on travel.  Whilst we endeavor to provide regular updates regarding travel safety, travellers should also consult the World Health Organization (WHO) and Singapore’s Ministry of Health (MOH) websites for the most up-to-date information about the evolving situation.

The latest information from WHO on the COVID-19 situation can be found at https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019

Please note the following key changes to the Travel Guard Direct policy wording for all new policies issued from 24 September 2022.
