Malaysia’s border will reopen to international arrivals on April 1, with no quarantine or isolation required.
Arrivals must be fully vaccinated, produce a negative PCR test two days before arrival, and take a rapid antigen test 24 hours after entry.
The Southeast Asian country is known for its lush rainforests, bustling markets and sandy beaches, making it a popular holiday destination for Australians.
After shutting the international border back in March 2020, the country has maintained some of the tightest restrictions in the world to ensure COVID-19 outbreaks remain under control.
Malaysia’s prime minister, Ismail Sabri, stated that “We believe this decision will boost our economy and help revive our ailing tourism sector.”
