Fully Vaccinated Foreigners Allowed To Enter Malaysia Without Quarantine Soon Says Muhyiddin

Following the positive developments of the Covid-19 parameters in Malaysia, the government is contemplating opening the country’s border securely by allowing foreigners who have been fully vaccinated from selected countries to enter Malaysia without having to undergo mandatory quarantine.

Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, head of the National Recovery Council (MPN), said that it will be carried out via the mutual recognition of vaccination certificate programme, which has already been implemented in many other countries.

He said that this was one of the topics addressed in today’s MPN meeting.

“This is a positive development in the process of opening the country’s borders, which I am sure will revive economic activities, especially the tourism sector, international conventions, retail and others, as well as facilitate business and social visitors (coming to the country),” Muhyiddin said.

Muhyiddin said he had been informed by Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin and was satisfied with the progress, particularly the decrease in daily COVID-19 positive cases, the usage of intensive care unit ward beds to treat COVID-19 patients, and the high vaccination rate among adults.

According to the Pagoh Member of Parliament, opening the country’s borders would also enable Malaysians to travel overseas without having to go through tedious rules and regulations, while foreigners may enter the country by meeting the required criteria.

However, he said that the matter had not yet been finalized.

“The opening of the international border has been considered for a long time and it is considered the time now, with cross-district and cross-state travel now allowed,” he added.

The MPN meeting, which lasted almost three hours, was also attended by opposition party representatives, including Subang Member of Parliament (MP) Wong Chen (PKR), Stampin MP Chong Chieng Jen (DAP), Kuala Selangor MP Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad (Amanah) and Tan Sri Bernard Dompok, of UPKO.
