Malaysia’s international borders will be reopened soon to allow more Malaysians to spend time with their family members during Hari Raya Aidilfitri in May 2022, as confirmed by Malaysia’s Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri bin Yaakob on Saturday, 5 March 2022.
Fully vaccinated travellers may travel by any means into 🇲🇾 Malaysia quarantine-free, subject to prevailing entry requirements, from 1 April 2022.
Malaysia’s Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin also has reportedly said that Ismail Sabri is expected to announce the date of the reopening of Malaysia’s borders next week. Khairy said the Cabinet reached an agreement on Malaysia’s reopening at its meeting on Friday, 4 March 2022.
Ismail Sabri also added that the Malaysian government is in the process of implementing a Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) by land with Brunei and Thailand, to allow for travel to and from Malaysia with these 2 countries. This will add to the existing VTL arrangement with Singapore. Another VTL with Indonesia is still under planning.
Director-General of the Immigration Department of Malaysia (JIM) Khairul Dzaimee Daud says that JIM is ready for the reopening of Malaysia’s borders. Among the main international gateways for the purpose are Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and Sultan Iskandar Building in Johor.
