What about travelling to and from Thailand?
Thailand is only accepting tourists instead of frequent travellers for now. The two borders – Bukit Kayu Hitam – Sadao and Wang Kelian – Wang Prachan – will fully reopen for tourists on 1 April.
Travellers from Thailand to Malaysia need to follow the existing SOPs which require a pre-departure PCR test and an on-arrival RTK Antigen test.
According to Malay Mail, Thailand’s Tourism and Sports Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn expects all land border entry points with Malaysia to reopen by 1 May 2022.
Do you need travel insurance?
Travellers were required to have travel insurance prior to this announcement.
For now, travellers need a little more documentation before they can cross the borders.
