The Malaysia-Singapore border is set to reopen for the fully vaccinated, on November 29.

Transport Minister Wee Ka Siong said that fully vaccinated travellers from Singapore will be able to travel to Malaysia, and vice versa, under the Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) by air starting from Nov 29, without the need to undergo quarantine upon arrival.

According to him, both the Singaporean and Malaysian government are currently discussing the final points of the VTL for land travel between the two countries, and the details are set to be announced soon.

"With Malaysia and Singapore enjoying strong economic links and between our peoples, the VTL by air will be a huge moment to cherish as it signals another step for us out of the pandemic’s gloom.

"I hope that more Malaysians will be able to enjoy this facility and reunite with their friends and families. At the same time, I urge all travellers to abide by the SOPs for health protocols and keep each other safer," Wee, who is also MCA president, said in a statement on his Facebook last night.

Meanwhile, The Star quoted Johor Menteri Besar Hasni Mohammad saying that Malaysia's land border with Singapore will also reopen on Nov 29 to coincide with the VTL between the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and Changi Airport.

The land travel will only cover long-term pass holders, such as those working in Singapore or those working in Johor Bahru, he noted.
