Malaysians will get to travel abroad again very soon according to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
He estimated that international travel will be allowed once the country’s adult vaccination rate hits 90%, reported Utusan.
Travellers no longer need to apply for a MyTravelPass, although the quarantine requirements remain, once the borders are open again.
The government is also in ongoing discussions with Singapore to permit entry by daily workers from Johor who will resume their daily routines.
Just yesterday Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin tweeted that Malaysians could once again go back to their hometowns and travel between states once 90% of the adult population in the country are fully vaccinated.
According to statistics from the ministry of health, 87.2% of Malaysian adults are fully vaccinated.
It projected that all 23,409,600 adults in Malaysia will be fully vaccinated by the end of October and that 94.3% of adults in the country have already had at least 1 dose of the vaccine.
This means that the permission to travel between states and internationally might come sooner rather than later.
