Starting 10 August, Malaysia and Singapore will their border to different groups of travellers.

This is after both countries were forced to close their borders for a few months after the increase in local Covid-19 infections.

Both governments have agreed to implement the Reciprocal Green Lane (RGL) and Periodic Commuting Arrangement (PCA).

According to reports by The Star, the RGL would enable cross-border travel for essential business and official purposes between both countries while PCA allows Singaporeans and Malaysias who hold long-term immigration passes for business and work purposes to travel for work.

Those who are allowed to travel will still have to undergo prevention measures which includes the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) swab tests.

Based on a statement made by both government, the officials in Malaysia and Singapore have agreed to publish the requirements, health protocols, and application process involved for entry and exit into Malaysia and Singapore 10 days prior to their implementation of the RGL and PCA.

There are also talks to develop other appropriate schemes for the cross-border movement of people including a daily cross-border commuting proposal for work purposes for travellers from both countries.
