Malaysia // Re-opening of borders on 1 April

Two years after Malaysia closed its borders on March 18, 2020, the Prime Minister of Malaysia has announced that the country will reopen fully on April 1st, 2022.


Beginning April 1st, foreigners entering Malaysia with valid travel documents do not need to undergo quarantine, so long as they are fully vaccinated. The requirement for foreigners to apply to enter Malaysia using the MyTravelPass application will also be lifted.


Quick summary of the main points to remember:

  • All categories of travellers can enter Malaysia for business purposes and social visits without having to apply for any Entry Approvals;
  • No quarantine for fully vaccinated travellers (5 days for unvaccinated travellers instead of the current 10 days);
  • PCR tests before departure to Malaysia;
  • Antigenic test within 24 hours upon arrival to Malaysia.

The Ministry of Health has issued a visual summary tab available here
