Starting yesterday, there is no quarantine requirement for fully-vaccinated Malaysian travellers entering India.
The Indian High Commission in Kuala Lumpur, in a statement posted on its official Facebook page, said that the pre-flight COVID-19 RT-PCR test is also not mandatory for fully vaccinated travellers arriving in India from Malaysia.
"With the world's largest vaccination drive, led by India's Aatmanirbhar vaccine leadership, and COVID protocols in place, India has relaxed travel restrictions for travellers coming to India from Malaysia," read the statement.
While there is no formal mutual recognition of COVID-19 certification between Malaysia and India, the governments of both countries recognize the vaccination certificates in practice and on the ground.
On Nov 15 last year, India reopened its borders for the first time since the pandemic broke in early 2020. It allowed arrivals from certain countries with some restrictions.
Last December, the country also postponed plans to fully resume commercial international passenger flights, in the wake of the scare involving the Omicron variant of the coronavirus.
