Malaysia left interstate and international travel restrictions for fully vaccinated residents

In a statement Malaysia said, it has lifted interstate and international travel restrictions for fully vaccinated COVID-19 residents. Malaysia has inoculated 90% of its adult population.

Malaysian Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob said, the government has agreed to allow fully vaccinated Malaysians to travel overseas without them seeking permission to do so.

The new rules are effective as on Monday.

The development comes at a time when the government is preparing to shift into an endemic COVID-19 phase where it will not impose lockdowns in case of a small rise in COVID-19 cases, said Ismail Sabri.

He went on to add, “We have to train ourselves to live with COVID, because COVID may not be eliminated fully”.

As of Saturday, around 65% of Malaysia’s 32 million population, including those aged between 12 to 17, were fully vaccinated.

Malaysia has recorded 2.3 million coronavirus infections and 27,265 deaths from COVID-19.
