PUTRAJAYA, MALAYSIA — Malaysia is fully reopening its borders to international travellers on April 1, 2022, after nearly two years of COVID-19-related closures.
Fully vaccinated travellers will be permitted to enter without the need to quarantine, on the condition they take a COVID-19 PCR test two days before departure and a professionally-administered RTK-Ag test within 24 hours upon arrival in Malaysia.
“We are delighted with the latest government’s announcement for the resumption of international travel, and look forward to engaging with airlines and travel trade to ramp up marketing efforts to promote Malaysia as a safe travel destination,” said YB Dato’Sri Hajah Nancy Shukri, Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture Malaysia.
To facilitate a seamless travel experience, travellers with valid travel documents can enter Malaysia by downloading and activating the MySejahtera contact-tracing app, available from the Apple App Store, Google Play Store or Huawei AppGallery. They can complete the pre-departure form under the ‘Traveller’ icon, without needing to apply for the MyTravelPass, which will be abolished.
International travellers who are not fully vaccinated must undergo a five-day quarantine upon arrival. Meanwhile, children ages 12-17 are allowed to enter quarantine-free, and only need to undergo a professionally-administered COVID-19 RTK-Ag test within 24 hours upon arrival in Malaysia.
The use of face masks in public places and MySejahtera check-in remain in place. Full-capacity activities will also return, though physical distancing will still be encouraged.
