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:
Starting 28 September 2022, the use of face masks is no longer required on flights due to the relaxation announced by the Health Ministry, which is also in line with health recommendations from the European Union, Britain, the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore, unless travellers are travelling to or from destinations that mandate it.
Face masks indoors is also optional in Malaysia but remain mandatory in public transport, healthcare facilities and for COVID-19 cases. However, pregnant women, travel companions of high-risk individuals such as the elderly, children and those with chronic diseases, low immunity and exhibiting influenza-like symptoms are highly encouraged to don the mask.
