Malaysians allowed to travel overseas by December

Malaysia is looking to reopen its borders to foreign travel in December once 90% of its adult population is fully vaccinated.

In a recent interview with selected senior press members, Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob said “Yes, December is possible” though “it’s still too early at the moment,” We will open the state borders first before allowing international travel.”

“State borders will be opened in two weeks as currently 85.5% of the adults have been vaccinated.”

Ismail also said that Malaysians need not apply for the MyTravelPass (MTP) for international travel anymore however the quarantine rules will remain.

As for Johor – Singapore Reciprocal Green Lane (RGL), Ismail has instructed Johor Menteri Besar to continue talk with Singapore on the RGL as it involves hundreds of thousands of workers who have been suffering for more than a year now.

Many countries are opening their borders around the world which include Australia that plans to open their border in November 2021.

As for me .. I am now looking forward for South Thailand to start opening up for us Malaysians as there are now talks of the Dannok and Hatyai Sandbox program and I guess with Malaysian Government eager to open up borders by December, we might be able to cross over in time for Christmas and the New Year Eve celebration.

However, please do take note that only Malaysians who are fully vaccinated will be allowed to travel overseas from December with terms and conditions depending on the countries you are visiting.
