With the nation’s borders set to re-open after more than two years, travellers planning on coming to Malaysia have been reminded to only continue with their travel after testing negative for Covid-19.

Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin Abu Bakar has also reminded short term visitors to purchase Covid-19 travel insurance before entering the country.

In a TikTok video posted on Twitter, the Rembau MP laid out the necessary steps for travellers to take before entering the country.

“You will have heard by now that Malaysia’s borders will finally be re-open for international travellers from the first of April.

“Fully vaccinated travellers will no longer need to (observe) quarantine upon arrival,” Khairy said.

He continued the video with guidelines for travellers entering the country beginning on 1 April.

“Download the MySejahtera app and register an account. Tap on the traveller icon (inside the app) and fill up the pre-departure form.

“Take a pre-departure (Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR)) test within two days of departure. Travel only if you tested negative

“For short term visitors, we need you to have Covid-19 travel insurance.”

Khairy said that once these steps are completed, travellers need to verify their vaccination certificates at mysafetravel.gov.my.

Khairy said that travellers also need to take professional Antigen Rapid Test Kits (RTK-Ag) at private health facilities within 24 hours of arrival, adding that the screening process for Covid-19 could also be done at the airport.
