Malaysia to Reopen Borders to International Visitors from April 1

Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

Malaysia will reopen its border to international visitors from April 1, allowing travelers who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 to enter the country without quarantine, Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob said on March 8.

Visitors will be required to undergo pre-departure tests (RT-PCR) and upon-arrival tests (RTK-Antigen under professional supervision) 24 hours after the arrival.

At present, visitors can enter Malaysia only via the Singapore and Langkawi travel bubble for the fully vaccinated.

Malaysia shut its borders two years ago on March 18, 2020, when the coronavirus pandemic was spreading rapidly around the world.

Travelers who wish to enter Malaysia need only to download the MySejahtera tracking application and fill up a pre-departure travel form. International travelers will no longer be required to apply for MyTravelPass, which will be abolished.

While masks will still be mandatory during the transition phase, unvaccinated individuals will be allowed to cross state lines, and there will no longer be limits on opening hours or to the capacity of commercial and restaurant premises.

Nearly 80 percent of Malaysia’s total population have been fully vaccinated, while 64 percent of Malaysians have taken a booster dose.

The country has also been gradually easing its virus protocols. Asymptomatic close contacts of Covid-19 patients are no longer required to undergo mandatory quarantine. Malaysia has also dropped a requirement for inbound travelers to undergo testing within six days of arrival under the vaccinated travel lane with Singapore.
