Malaysia is currently in talk with Singapore and Brunei to open the borders to citizens of these countries, says Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
The senior minister said that the government in principle had agreed to give permission to Singaporeans and Bruneians to enter Malaysia without applying for approval from the Immigration Department however the permission is depended on reciprocal flexibility given to Malaysians by the Singapore and Brunei government.
If agreed, the cross-border travelers need not undergo the Covid-19 screening and the 14-day home quarantine requirements.
He also added that Wisma Putra is in talks with its counterparts from the respective countries on the matter and the decision will now depend on the outcome of the talks.
The Health Ministry had determined that Singapore and Brunei were green zone countries and as such, the government had agreed to allow citizens there to enter Malaysia.
