Government statistics show that more than three-quarters of Malaysia’s 32 million people have been vaccinated.
Former Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin (Muhyiddin Yassin), the chairman of the committee responsible for leading Malaysia’s economic recovery plan, told reporters that the recovery of tourism without foreigners is too slow, and pointed out that operators need time to resume business.
However, Muhyiddin said that infection control measures such as Covid-19 testing will continue to be implemented, and the authorities will determine entry based on the Covid-19 situation in the country of origin and other factors.
He did not specify when the exact date of the reopening will be announced, but said that the health and safety agency is still detailing the decision.
Malaysia announced this week that it will open a vaccination travel route with neighboring Singapore on November 29, allowing vaccinated persons between the two countries to travel without isolation.
It also agreed with Indonesia to gradually introduce similar tourist corridors.
