The Malaysian government announced that individuals can now submit home quarantine applications online.

Key Points:

  • As of Sept. 21, international travelers may now apply for home quarantine through this website.
  • Applications must be submitted seven to 10 days before entering the country.
  • To be eligible for the home quarantine, individuals must:
    • Have a home or residence in Malaysia.
    • Receive a negative PCR test result conducted within 72 hours of departure to Malaysia.
    • Be fully vaccinated.
    • Be an existing visa pass holder.

Additional information: If approved, the home quarantine application lets foreign nationals carry out the 14-day mandatory quarantine at their home or residence rather than a designated facility.

Foreign nationals from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka had been restricted from entering, but can now enter the country if they are fully vaccinated, take a PCR test and quarantine upon arrival. Applications to enter the country can be submitted to MYTravelPass or MYEntry.

BAL Analysis: The response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, and BAL will provide additional updates as information becomes available.
