Malaysia ditches all Covid entry restrictions

Thursday, Aug 04, 2022 0

Malaysia has ended all remaining Covid entry restrictions for foreign arrivals.

Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah confirmed all Covid entry requirements have been scrapped, allowing all vaccinated and unvaccinated tourists to enter.

Unvaxxd travellers were previously required to follow strict testing requirements, while vaccinated travelers had to show proof of vaccination in the MySejahtera app.

“However, vaccination requirements are still subject to any airline’s regulations,” Dr Noor Hisham said.

The Traveller’s Pass no longer needs to be filled in, regardless of their vaccination status.

“Upon arrival, if a traveller is detected with a fever through the thermal scanners or found to be unwell through self-referral by the traveller, they will be referred for re-examination by medical authorities,” Noor Hisham added.

Masks are still required indoors and on public transport.
