KUCHING, March 25: Travellers from Brunei must download the MySejahtera application and undergo RTK antigen (RTK-ag) testings before being allowed into Sarawak.

According to a news report from Sarawak Public Communication Unit (Ukas) yesterday, a coordination meeting was held between the governments of Malaysia and Brunei to discuss the protocol for travellers entering the country as outlined by the Malaysian government in conjunction with the reopening of the country’s border on April 1.
