Malaysia is set to reopen its borders to international travellers from 1 April after nearly two years of being closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Under the new entry rules, the southeast Asian country will not require fully vaccinated passengers to quarantine on arrival, provided they take a PCR test two days before departure and then a lateral flow test within 24 hours of arriving in Malaysia.

International travellers will also be required to complete a pre-departure form but will no longer have to obtain a MyTravelPass permit.

Daniel Bainbridge, UK and Europe regional director at Malaysia Airlines, said: “We are thrilled to hear we now have an official date for the full reopening of Malaysia’s borders across all its destinations, which has been long-awaited by all.”

Malaysia Airlines is currently the only airline flying non-stop between London and Kuala Lumpur.

“We have been preparing for this significant milestone for a long time and have already increased our flight capacity to provide better connections across Malaysia and onwards to southeast Asia and Australasia,” added Bainbridge.
