Fully vaccinated travellers from Singapore will be able to travel to Malaysia under the Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) by air from Nov 29 without having to undergo quarantine upon arrival.
Transport Ministry, in a statement today, said travellers must use the VTL designated services between Changi Airport and Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).
“Malaysia underscores the longstanding, deep and broad-ranging relations with Singapore particularly in strengthening the Malaysia-Singapore transport connectivity.
“As such, the VTL is an important milestone to restart the recovery of civil aviation while also addressing public health concerns to ensure its future resilience,” the statement read.
It said that the VTL would commence with six daily services which would be operated by AirAsia, Jetstar Asia, Malaysia Airlines, Malindo Air, Scoot and Singapore Airlines.
Travellers do not need to apply to travel to Malaysia under the VTL since entry facilities would be processed upon arrival and they were also not required to apply for a MyTravel Pass from the Immigration Department of Malaysia, it added.
Among the requirements set for the VTL are travellers must have completed a full regiment of a Covid-19 vaccine recognised by the Ministry of Health, Malaysia and must remain in Singapore or Malaysia in the last 14 consecutive days before departure.
Meanwhile, short-term visitors, including business and official travellers, must obtain a valid visa for visa-required visitors and they must also purchase a return ticket and travel insurance with a minimum coverage of RM100,000 for Covid-19-related medical treatment and hospitalisation costs.
The statement added that travellers are required to undergo the RT-PCR tests within two days prior to their departure to Malaysia and upon arrival at KLIA.
They must wait for their test results at the designated waiting area at KLIA and can proceed to leave the airport once their test results are confirmed to be negative, it said.
