[COMMENTS & QUESTIONS]

Starting 4th July 2022, Malaysians citizens travelling to Malaysia no longer need to fill in the Pre-departure form to get the Travellers Card.

Starting 1st May 2022, to boost the country’s economic development and recovery, Malaysia removed many of its entry requirements such as pre-departure and on-arrival test for fully vaccinated travellers. Covid travel insurance is not longer required for all travellers.

If some steps cannot be performed, for example due to unexpected behaviour of the MySejahtera App, just print out the necessary documents during your travel; Vaccination record, Covid-19 test report, Insurance, etc. (if applicable).

Finding out how to complete all the procedures is like cracking the code to a puzzle, every now and then people who are planning their trip discover new features or steps to perform themselves as there are no proper instructions. [Check out: Malaysia Quarantine Support Group (MQSG)]
