COVID-19 Safety

Malaysia welcomes travellers with open arms upon the reopening of international borders starting 1st April 2022 to make your travel more convenient and hassle free. All fully vaccinated travellers can now visit Malaysia quarantine-free, in transition to an Endemic Phase of Covid-19.

Reflecting the improving situation, the Malaysian Government has introduced new COVID relaxations from 1 May 2022 which include the following travel guidance:

  • Fully vaccinated travellers and children aged 12 and below are exempted from pre-departure and on-arrival tests
  • COVID-19 insurance is no longer required for all travellers entering Malaysia
  • Before departing, you still need to download, register and activate the MySejahtera contact tracing application, and complete a travel declaration including vaccination information that can be accessed via the Traveller icon in the MySejahtera application.
