Tourists are not required to test for Covid-19 when they visit Langkawi, according to Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Nancy Shukry.

Bernama reported that those looking to travel are encouraged to use travel agencies and private vehicles are not allowed onto the island.

Meanwhile, she mentioned in RTM’s Selamat Pagi Malaysia segment that the government initially planned for 1 September to pop the travel bubble, but shifted the date to 16 September instead, in conjunction with Hari Malaysia.

She said that opening up the tourism destination is part of her Ministry’s 100-day target which has been set previously by the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

In the future, Nancy mentioned that the Tourism Ministry is looking at opening up more areas for tourism.

She said that those who want to travel to Langkawi will need to be fully vaccinated.
