KUALA LUMPUR (July 1): Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob today confirmed that Singaporeans with MM2H visas can enter Malaysia if they have no symptoms of Covid-19 and are fit enough to travel, reported the Malay Mail.
“Yes, we allow Singaporean citizens involved in MM2H to enter. We have already said they will not be quarantined as long as they are negative and have no symptoms of Covid-19. Even the quarantine centre in Johor is already closed, there are no more quarantine centres.
“However, when entering Malaysia, they must have a certificate that shows they are Covid-19 free and have no symptoms. They must show us a ‘fit to travel’ certificate. Singapore must issue such a certificate to its citizens,” Ismail Sabri clarified at a media conference today.
He said this ruling was already “set previously”.
“Maybe we will review this condition but for now this is the rule, the review will depend on the discussion between both countries’ foreign ministries. We can loosen some regulations but they must also do the same.
“We have 215,000 Malaysian workers waiting for Singapore to loosen the rules,” he explained.
“It must be two ways, we need to ensure both countries benefit from each other, hopefully this will be resolved soon and both citizens can enter each other’s country without much restriction,” he added.
