Those who have completed both doses of Covid-19 vaccine might be allowed to cross state borders under a Covid-19 passport currently under discussion by the government.

Works Minister Fadillah Yusuf said this is part of an incentive under consideration.

“Once you have been vaccinated, you will get the passposrt and it will allow you to travel anywhere in Malaysia.

“In fact, if you don’t have an international passport, you can still travel abroad under the travel bubble, like what the World Health Organization has been doing with a few other countries that have agreed,” he said in a press conference at the Sarawak Construction Industry Development Board in Kuching today.

He said once the move receives the consent of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, it will encourage the public to get vaccinated.

He added that the initiative would be deliberated once more by the National Security Council’s technical committee.

“The matter was discussed this week, and hopefully it will be approved by the committee after being presented again.”
