Malaysia Singapore Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) commences on Nov 29.
Requirements For Malaysia-Singapore Air VTL Just Announced By Transport Ministry
The Transport Ministry has published the requirements for passengers flying from Singapore to Malaysia using the Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL), which will commence on Nov 29.
The ministry said that Singaporeans are not required to apply for visas to enter Malaysia under the VTL since entrance facilities would be processed upon arrival. They are also not required to apply for a MyTravel Pass from Malaysia’s Immigration Department.
“Travellers must have completed a full regiment of a Covid-19 vaccine recognised by the Health Ministry and must remain in Singapore or Malaysia in the last 14 consecutive days before departure.
“Short-term visitors, including business and official travellers, must obtain a valid visa for visa-required visitors and they must also purchase a return ticket and travel insurance with a minimum coverage of RM100,000 for Covid-19-related medical treatment and hospitalisation costs,” the ministry said in a statement on Thursday (Nov 18).
According to the ministry, travellers will also be required to undergo RT-PCR tests within two days of their departure from Malaysia and upon arrival at KLIA. They will also be required to wait for their test results in a designated waiting area at the airport and may exit once their test results are confirmed to be negative.
According to the announcement, travellers connecting Changi Airport and Kuala Lumpur International Airport must use VTL-designated services (KLIA).
The VTL will begin operations with six daily flights operated by AirAsia, Jetstar Asia, Malaysia Airlines, Malindo Air, Scoot, and Singapore Airlines.

“Malaysia underscores the longstanding, deep, and broad-ranging relations with Singapore particularly in strengthening the Malaysia-Singapore transport connectivity.
“As such, the VTL is an important milestone to restart the recovery of civil aviation while also addressing public health concerns to ensure its future resilience,” the statement mentions.
