Full Restrictions

  • Malaysia Leaving from and returning to Malaysia has previously been subject to prior government approval which was highly restricted but this has ended today and the limitations were lifted, allowing for regular travel again.

    As a condition, travellers must be fully vaccinated and also do a swab test three days before returning to Malaysia plus another swab test upon arriving Malaysia.

    Restrictions have been very tough and Malaysia is one of the few countries that sealed the border both externally and internally, preventing citizens from leaving without prior clearance.

    The MyTravelPass application which was used by the Malaysia immigration department will no longer be required for purposes of travel for Malaysian citizens, however foreigners are still subject to strict entry regulations and there is no option to enter Malaysia as a tourist for the time being.

    This was reported by The Star this morning as new regulations came into effect.

    Malaysians will be allowed to travel overseas without going through the Immigration Department’s MyTravelPass beginning today, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

    “The decision to allow Malaysians to travel overseas is to connect separated family members and couples.

    “It is also for Malaysians travelling overseas for the purposes of work and business. However, overseas travel will only be allowed for those who are fully inoculated,” he said during his special address yesterday afternoon.

    Ismail Sabri said fully-vaccinated Malaysians who were returning to the country must be tested for Covid-19 three days before their departure, and again upon arriving in the country.

    “For Malaysians, self-quarantine at home is allowed.”

    “If there are cases, the Health Ministry will then place them at quarantine centres.”

    However, Ismail Sabri said this does not mean that Malaysian borders have been reopened for international tourists.

    Ismail Sabri said a decision has yet to be made on the reopening of international tourism in Malaysia; the announcement would be made after more studies were conducted by the Health Ministry.

    “Studies are still ongoing and, God willing, we will make an announcement soon.” …

    Previously, travellers who were allowed entry into Malaysia were citizens, foreigners with permanent resident status, diplomats and dependants of a foreign mission in Malaysia, and those who are Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) Pass Holders, student pass holders, oil and gas workers, seafarers as well as those on medical tourism. …

Activities involving large gatherings such as religious congregations or activities that may involve close body contact such as food bazaars remain prohibited. Details of the activities that are allowed can be found on the National Security Council’s website or the government agency’s social media page (both in Malay). Alternatively, translated details of the CMCO can be found here. Interstate travel remains banned and applications through the authorities should still be made.
    Under the CMCO, public transportation is operating at half of its usual capacity, to maintain social-distance. Transport services to and from the airport also remain available.
    While all states are moving towards easing restrictions and resuming business activities, the adoption of the CMCO differs in each state. States with different separate plans include the following:
    Penang: Adjusted CMCO – the Penang Gradual Recovery Strategy (PGRS); limited businesses have resumed operations from 8 May, remaining businesses are expected to resume from 13 May.
    Negeri Sembilan: Adjusted CMCO; limited business have resumed operations from 4 May.
    Selangor: Adjusted CMCO; limited businesses have resumed operations from 4 May.
    Sarawak states: CMCO will be implemented from 12 May. Details of the state-specific guideline can be found on the Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) social media page.
    Anyone intending to undertake interstate travel to major cities should apply online through the Gerak Malaysia mobile application or at the local police station.
    Domestic travellers, including Malaysian nationals and foreigners in Malaysia, are not allowed to travel between West Malaysia and the states of Sabah or Sarawak (East Malaysia). Residents of Sabah or Sarawak who were already in West Malaysia, or vice versa, before the MCO are allowed to return to their respective states. They are required to present their flight tickets and identification documents (identification card or passport) to clear immigration. However, they will be subject to the following measures:
    Sabah: Sabah identity card holders entering the state may be subject to a 14-day quarantine. Permanent residents, long-term pass holders (including student pass, work permit, and spouses and children holding long-term social visit pass), and non-residents working in the essential services sector are allowed to enter the state but are subject to a mandatory 14-day self-quarantine.
    Sarawak: Sarawak residents, permanent residents, employment pass holders or those working in essential services who are allowed to enter will be given a 14-day stay home notice.
    Road closures, roadblocks and checkpoints have been implemented across the nation.

    Internal restrictions:

    With conditional MCO coming into effect from 4 May, most business and social activities are permitted, provided they adhere to stringent health and social-distancing guidelines.

    Internal restrictions:

    With conditional MCO (CMCO) coming into effect from 4 May, most business and social activities will be permitted, provided they adhere to stringent health and social-distancing guidelines. Activities involving large gatherings such as religious congregations or activities that may involve close body contact such as food bazaars remain prohibited. Details of the activities that are allowed can be found on the National Security Council’s website. Alternatively, the information can also be obtained through the government agency’s social media account. Interstate travel remains banned and applications through the authorities should still be made.
    Under the CMCO, public transportation will operate at half of its usual capacity, to maintain social-distancing. Transport services to and from the airport will also remain available.
    The adoption of the CMCO differs in each state. Several states have decided to retain some restrictions. These states include:
    Penang; the present MCO remains in effect.
    Kedah: CMCO is delayed until the decision is made by the State Security Working Committee Meeting on 5 May.
    Negeri Sembilan: Adjusted CMCO; limited business will operate from 4 May.
    Selangor: Adjusted CMCO; limited businesses will operate from 4 May.
    Sabah: CMCO not adopted at least until 12 May; the present MCO maintains.
    Sarawak states: CMCO delayed until investigation is conducted by the Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC).
    Pahang: CMCO is not adopted until further notice; the present MCO maintains.
    Anyone intending to undertake interstate travel to major cities should apply online through the Gerak Malaysia mobile application or at the local police station. From 7 May, inter-travel will resume according to the schedule announced by the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM). Travellers can proceed as per the below schedule once application has been submitted:
    7 May: From Kuala Lumpur;
    8 May: From Perak, Johor and Kelantan;

    Domestic travellers, including Malaysian nationals and foreigners in Malaysia, are not allowed to travel between West Malaysia and the states of Sabah or Sarawak (East Malaysia). Residents of Sabah or Sarawak who were already in West Malaysia, or vice versa, before the MCO are allowed to return to their respective states. They are required to present their flight tickets and identification documents (identification card or passport) to clear immigration. However, they will be subject to the following measures:
    Sabah: Sabah identity card holders entering the state may be subject to a 14-day quarantine. Permanent residents, long-term pass holders (including student pass, work permit, and spouses and children holding long-term social visit pass), and non-residents working in the essential services sector are allowed to enter the state but are subject to a mandatory 14-day self-quarantine.
