Singapore and Malaysia Open Land Borders for Vaccinated Citizens

Singapore and Malaysia have reopened land borders and eased restrictions for citizens that have been vaccinated against COVID-19.

As some countries start reopening for foreign tourism and citizens’ re-entry in the face of the pandemic, Singapore and Malaysia have organized a Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL).

According to the Singaporean government’s website, citizens of either country that meet health requirements will be able to travel from one to the other with no need for quarantine.

Travelers will need to present their limited travel history, negative COVID test within 2 calendar days of travel, and valid digital proof of vaccination. 

The only accepted mode of travel between Singapore and Malaysia is a preapproved VTL land bus that will carry approved citizens from one country to the other.

This VTL will provide a convenient way for displaced workers to return home for the first time since the introduction of border restrictions at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic nearly two years ago.
