Dear Travellers, Travel & Media Partners,
In the wake of the outbreak of the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-2019), we would like to bring to your attention the latest updates on the travel situation in Malaysia:
Dear Friends of Malaysia,
In the effort to smoothen the application process to enter and exit the country for Malaysians and foreigners, applicants can submit their requests via MyTravelPass on the official website of the Immigration Department. The period of application is from October 8 and will last throughout the duration of the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO), which will be implemented until December 31.
The approval process for the applications made under MyTravelPass is estimated to take approximately five working days. Therefore, all applicants are urged to apply early to ensure all the necessary supporting documents are provided.
The categories of applications that are permitted to apply via MyTravelPass are as follows:
Applicants will receive results or status of applications via email. While application will be made easy, take note that approval is not guaranteed.
Meanwhile, the state of Sarawak has announced their latest SOPs for those entering the state from West Malaysia. Now all Malaysian citizens are required to undergo quarantine for 14 days at Quarantine Centres. They are also required to undergo Covid-19 tests on the second and tenth day. However, while the quarantine and Covid-19 test costs are borne by the Sarawak State Government for Sarawakians, non-Sarawakians will need to pay for the total costs on their own.
Don’t forget to wear your masks and avoid the three C’s: Crowded places, Cramped spaces and Close conversations.
Stay safe. #kitajagakita
