KUCHING, Jan 12: Fully vaccinated travellers with Covid-19 infection history between past 11 to 60 days will no longer need to be quarantined upon arrival in Malaysia.

Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said they must, however, have proof of full vaccination and Covid-19 infection history from printed or digital laboratory results.

He said those are the latest requirements on top of existing ones for travellers from abroad into Malaysia and will be effective tomorrow (Jan 13).

“Travellers who had history of hospital admission due to Covid-19 are required to submit their ‘Fit to Travel’ letters from the respective health facility.

“For travellers who are undergoing isolation at home including at hotels and not admitted to hospitals, they need to undergo the rapid test kit (RTK) antigen two days prior to departure to Malaysia.

“Only individuals who have negative test results are allowed to resume their journey,” he said in a statement today.

Khairy also said travellers must bring along the documents and present to flight and health authorities at the arrival gate upon request.

Unvaccinated and partially vaccinated travellers, however, are required to undergo compulsory quarantine of seven days at the quarantine centre upon arrival into the country.

The current requirements for fully vaccinated travellers without Covid-19 infection travelling to Malaysia still applies. — DayakDaily
