Sabah no longer requires fully-vaccinated individuals from other parts of Malaysia to serve mandatory quarantine, per the latest standard operating procedures released on 4 October (Monday), and shared by Minister of Local Government & Housing Masidi Manjun.
Mandatory quarantine will continue to apply for individuals entering from overseas, whether fully-vaccinated or not.

- Comply with the guidelines for admission to Sabah set by the Sabah State Government.
- Obtain PDRM permission to cross the state.
- Negative COVID-19 RT-PCR or RTK-Ag (Swab / Saliva) test results, within three days before the trip and the test performed must be confirmed by the clinic or laboratory that performed the test.
- The validity period of RTK-Ag is one day and RT-PCR is three days after sampling, before entering Sabah.
- Quarantine is not needed except for individuals who have not been completely vaccinated, and individuals with symptoms during the screening of entry at the entrance and entry from abroad.
- Individuals must fill in the eHealth Declaration Form (eHDF) before entry.
- All entries are subject to the risk assessment by health staff at the Sabah entrance.
