The earlier requirements for unvaccinated travellers to get tested before arrival, has also been removed.

Note however that a notarisation of the Singaporean Covid-certificate is necessary for it to be compliant for travel within the Schengen Area, and that as per above travellers are advised to consult with their airlines regarding regulations for transit destinations.
