Neighbours Malaysia and Singapore have agreed to recognize their respective Covid-19 vaccination certificates in the near future to facilitate border movement in both countries, according to Chairman of the National Rehabilitation Council (MPN), Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

He was quoted by Berita Harian saying that he has been in contact with the Prime Minister of Singapore, Lee Hsien Loong to discuss the matter and Singapore has agreed to it.

With the Covid-19 situation and vaccination rates in Malaysia and Singapore still unfinished, perhaps he (Hsien Loong) is a bit cautious. Malaysia also wants to go to Singapore because the relationship between the two countries is so close, including for day-to-day business and when the country’s borders can no longer be opened, it becomes a big problem.

Muhyiddin mentioned that currently, only lorries were allowed to enter the country with drivers vaccinated in Singapore.

So, this is one of the things we will refine when it is deemed appropriate and Singapore agrees when vaccination has reached a complete stage. Once the Malaysian and Singaporean vaccination certificates are jointly recognized, it will enable movement between the two countries, including the Thai border and other international borders will also be opened.

He added that all these matters will be taken into account and when the vaccination situation has increased, the country has become safer and district, state and international borders will begin to open.
