Travellers are required to show proof of vaccination before entering the country. Here's a quick guide to obtaining a digital certificate of proof.
Travellers looking to enter Malaysia are to adhere to a series of measures the country has put in place, including showing proof of their vaccination status before being allowed in.
In particular, travellers are required to update their vaccination details on the MySejahtera. Here's a quick guide to doing so, as shared by the MySejahtera team:
- Click 'Helpdesk' on the MySejahtera homepage.
- Select 'Option N - I have received my vaccination overseas and would like to obtain my digital certificate in MySejahtera.'
- Enter your vaccination information and attach the proof of vaccination, which was obtained abroad.
Effective 13 January 2022 (Thursday), fully-vaccinated travellers who had been infected with COVID-19 within the past 11 to 60 days prior to arrival in Malaysia will no longer need to serve mandatory quarantine.
Per a statement by the Ministry of Health, Malaysia is still adhering to stringent border control procedures, including testing and quarantine for travellers arriving in Malaysia to reduce the risk of imported COVID-19 cases. Travellers with a positive RT-PCR test will therefore not be allowed to enter Malaysia.
