Pre-Event Testing (PET) – FAQ
The health and safety of our audiences, cast, and staff have always been our top priority. In light of the recent announcements by the government regarding safety measures and vaccination, all audiences must now be fully vaccinated before entering the Victoria Theatre.
You will be considered fully vaccinated if you have received the appropriate regimen or World Health Organisation Emergency Use Listing (WHO EUL) vaccines (e.g. Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, Sinopharm, Sinovac) including their respective duration post-vaccination for the vaccine to be fully effective.
If you are not fully vaccinated, you will need to do a Pre-Event Test (PET) and provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result, taken within 24 hours of the end of the performance, to gain entry to the Victoria Theatre. You can find a list of accepted test providers here or book an appointment at a quick test centre here.
We thank you for your understanding and support, and look forward to welcoming you back to Pangdemonium!
Frequently Asked Questions
I am fully vaccinated. Do I need to do PET?
PET will only be exempted if you have been fully vaccinated at least 14 days before the performance date you are attending. For example, if you wish to attend our show on 22 October, you will need to have had your second dose before 8 October.
I am not vaccinated because I have recovered from COVID-19. Can I still attend the show?
Yes, if you have recovered from COVID-19 within 270 days of diagnosis, you will be able to attend the show. However, you will need to provide a Pre-Event Testing Exemption Notice and Photo ID at the venue.
How do I show proof of my vaccination status at the theatre?
Please have the TraceTogether app on your phone or bring your TraceTogether token to verify your vaccination status.
Will PET be available at the Victoria Theatre?
No, PET will not be provided on-site. You must visit an accepted test provider or quick test centre within 24 hours of the end of the performance you’re attending.
Is there a cost for PET?
Yes, you will bear the cost of the PET. Please check with the test provider for the cost of the testing.
Can I self-test with a Home Test Kit?
Home test kits results are NOT valid for entry. You must visit an accepted test provider or quick test centre within 24 hours of the end of the performance you’re attending.
I have taken COVID-19 vaccination(s) overseas. Can I be exempted from PET?
Currently, only Singapore Citizens, Permanent Residents and Long-Term Pass Holders with vaccination records in Singapore’s National Immunisation Registry are exempted from PET. You will have to produce proof of vaccination and take a serology test at an approved provider. More details on the process, including the list of the approved providers, can be found on MOH’s Post Vaccination Matters website.
You will need to bring along your mobile device with call or internet service, or updated TraceTogether (TT) app on the day of the event, business, or activity. If you do not have a mobile device, please bring along your working TraceTogether token. The event organiser or venue staff will be able to retrieve vaccination status directly from MOH’s database using the SafeEntry (Business) app.
From 21 August 2021, newly arrived Singapore Citizens, Permanent Residents, Long-Term Pass Holders (LTPH) and Short-Term Visit Pass Holders (STVPs) would be exempted from PET, if you produce a valid tamper proof, Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) issued vaccination sticker on your passport or a valid negative result. These stickers would be valid until the end of your STVP validity or until 30 September 2021, 2359hrs, whichever is earlier.
From September, the IT systems will be enhanced such that travellers, upon verification of their eligible vaccination status at entry, will also be recognised by SE Biz App through their TT apps/ Tokens to be eligible for vaccination-differentiated safe management measures without needing to go through PET.
I do not want to go for PET, can I still come for the show?
Under the current MOH guidelines, PET is necessary for all live performances. Please visit https://www.moh.gov.sg/covid-19/pet for details.
