Ismail Sabri: Malaysians can now enter Sarawak without PCR tests

PUTRAJAYA (June 13): Malaysians can now enter Sarawak without having to seek permission from the Sarawak State Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) and take Covid-19 Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests prior to leaving for the state, said Senior Minister (Security) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

"However, they have to abide by the set standard operating procedures, including downloading the MySejahtera application and filling up the e-health declaration form.

"PCR samples will be taken randomly on arrival at the state's main entry points (air, land, and sea) and they are advised to download the Covid Trace Sarawak and Qmunity apps," he told a daily press conference here today.

Previously, travellers entering Sarawak from Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah, and Labuan needed approval from the SDMC and had to take PCR tests as part of measures to curb the spread of Covid-19.
