Fully vaccinated travellers will be free to travel between Malaysia and Singapore and will be subjected to COVID-19 testing instead of being quarantined or served with a Stay-Home Notice (SHN).
Quarantine Free Travel Between Singapore And Malaysia Via Vaccinated Travel Lane Starts On Nov 29
From November 29th, 2021, Malaysia and Singapore will open a Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) between Changi Airport and Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).
This was said in a joint statement released by Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob and Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong after a phone call between the two leaders on Monday.
Under the VTL, fully vaccinated travellers will be free to travel between Malaysia and Singapore and will be subjected to COVID-19 testing instead of being quarantined or served with a Stay-Home Notice (SHN).
Both prime leaders expressed hope that transport on land links will be restored in the near future.
They were pleased to see that thorough negotiations on a comparable vaccination travel programme – to resume travel over the Causeway and the Second Link – were progressing well, taking into consideration the public health situations in Johor and Singapore.
According to Ismail Sabri in the release, the VTLs represent another key milestone in Malaysia-Singapore cooperation.
The VTLs will enable travel as the two countries progressively reopen their borders in a responsible manner, balancing the need to revive their economies while preserving the safety and health of their citizens from COVID-19.

Prime Minister Lee said; “I look forward to effective implementation of this travel scheme, adding to those we already have developed previously to facilitate movements of people and goods between Malaysia and Singapore”.
“I am very happy that both our countries are finally able to restart cross-border travel through the VTLs. This will help revive our economies, restore our people-to-people ties, and strengthen our bilateral relationship,” he added.
