Malaysia has started to ease its borders as the government has provisionally granted Singapore and Brunei citizens entry into the country without having to acquire approval from the Immigration Department.

Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said nationals from both of these countries won’t need to undergo the mandatory Covid-19 screening and 14-day quarantine upon arrival either.

However, this is only limited to Singaporeans and Bruneians who are currently residing in their home countries.

Also, foreigners earning at least RM10,000 a month, as well as those holding professional visit passes and resident talent passes with top management positions, can enter the country without needing immigration’s approval.

As for Malaysians, those who hold certain employment passes are allowed to exit the country for emergency, work and study purposes.

They may travel overseas by showing proof of their travel purpose to immigration officers at airports, said Ismail Sabri.
