Keith Tan, CEO of the Tourism Board, said the country had seen 67,760 international visitors come into the country on January an 57,000 in February.
Mr Tan said: “These figures show there is healthy demand for short-term visits to Singapore. Travel recovery will be gradual this year, but we are cautiously optimistic as there is strong pent-up demand for travel to Singapore, even from longer-haul markets.”
Hotel Association President Kwee Wei-Lin said visitation had been strong from the United States, Europe and Australia.
She said: “We see a greater rebound for business travel. Based on current safe management measures, it is more favorable for visitors who must be in Singapore for business meetings.”
