UK government has issued new travel advice for Singapore. The warning was prompted by high levels of pollution from land clearance fires in Indonesia.

“Since 17 June Singapore has been experiencing high levels of pollution (“haze”) from land clearance fires in Indonesia. We advise all travelers and British residents in Singapore to monitor carefully the Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) updates and health advisories from the Singapore National Environment Agency (NEA) .

On 19 June the PSI reached a record level of over 300, which the NEA rates as “hazardous”. At this level the NEA recommends that “children, elderly and persons with existing diseases should stay indoors and avoid outdoor activity” and that “the general population should avoid all unnecessary outdoor activity”.

It is expected that the pollution problem will continue at various levels of severity for at least the next few days. Flights to and from Singapore have not been disrupted.”
