Foreign Travellers Can Visit Malaysia Without Quarantine!
On 8 March 2022, the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Ismail Sabri Yaacob, announced that Malaysia will reopen all international borders on 1 April 2022.
- All Malaysian citizens can travel freely internationally, as long as they have valid travel documents.
- All foreigners with valid travel documents can freely travel in and out of Malaysia, without apply for MyTravelPass, which will be abolished.
- All travellers have to activate MySejahtera, and fill in the Pre-Departure Form using the Traveller option in MySejahtera.
- All travellers who are fully-vaccinated with two doses of COVID-19 vaccine do not need to undergo any quarantine.
- However, travellers must show a negative RT-PCR test taken within 2 days before departure.
- In addition, travellers must undergo a professionally-administered RTK-Ag test within 24 hours of arrival in Malaysia, and report the results in MySejahtera.
Foreign Travellers To Malaysia Must Have US$20K Insurance!
On 30 March 2022, the Ministry of Health dropped a little bombshell just days before Malaysia reopened its international borders.
Starting 1 April 2022, all foreign travellers to Malaysia must purchase COVID-19 and travel insurance with coverage of at least US$20,000 before travelling to Malaysia.
This rule applies to all foreign travellers entering Malaysia on a short-term social pass, irrespective of vaccination status.
Foreign travellers must declare their COVID-19 and travel insurance policy in the MySejahtera app, before travelling to Malaysia.
The COVID-19 and travel insurance policy will be used to pay for any quarantine, treatment or hospitalisation costs, in case they get infected with COVID-19 while in Malaysia.
Only these groups are exempted from the requirement to purchase COVID-19 and travel insurance :
- Fully-vaccinated citizens of Singapore or Malaysia
- Fully-vaccinated permanent residents of Singapore or Malaysia
- Fully-vaccinated Long-term Pass Holders of Singapore or Malaysia
In other words, if you are a Singapore citizen / permanent resident / long-term pass holder who is NOT fully-vaccinated, you must purchase COVID-19 and travel insurance with coverage of at least US$20,000 before travelling to Malaysia.
These insurance exemptions apply to all those who enter Malaysia through Singapore by air, land or sea.
