All VTL travellers entering Malaysia on both air and land vaccinated travel lanes (VTL) will be put on a daily COVID-19 testing regime over 6 days using Antigen Rapid Test Kits (RTK-Ag) from 8 December 2021. This new development overrides the previous Day 3 and Day 7 self-administered RTK tests.

This news follows the implementation of additional Post-Arrival Days 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 Antigen Tests (ARTs) in Singapore for all Singapore VTL passengers.

This new enhanced protocol will also apply to travellers arriving from Singapore via the land VTL (Singapore-Malaysia VTL Bus) from 8 December 2021.

The Day 3 and Day 5 RTK-Ag tests must be professionally administered. View the list of clinics and hospitals for a professionally administered RTK-Ag test here.

The Day 2, Day 4, and Day 6 RT-Ag tests are self-administered. All RTK results must be submitted on the MySejahtera application.

Here’s a summary of the COVID-19 7-day testing schedule in Singapore for all VTL travellers:

  1. Good luck with all these restrictions on travel. I am still amazed that Singapore had such a huge pre-omicron case explosion but then again they never thought that dormitory workers would be a problem. ‘Almost’ funny. Perhaps the Singapore government should fine the employers ( whose duty it was to maintain workers well being ).
