Malaysia throws open its doors to tourists

Malaysia has this week ended all remaining Covid-19 entry restrictions for foreign arrivals.

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

Unvaxxed travellers were previously required to follow strict testing requirements, while vaccinated travellers 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.”

Masks are still required indoors and on public transport in Malaysia, Travel Mole reported.
