Those who complete two doses of the Covid-19 vaccine may be allowed to travel interstate or even abroad, Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin says.

He said a decision will be made on the matter at the National Security Council (NSC) meeting.

He said the government had also started negotiations and discussions with several countries for Malaysians who have been vaccinated to travel there.

“I will bring this up in the NSC meeting and we will discuss the possibility of allowing interstate travel for those who have completed their two vaccine doses or anywhere else without restrictions by the authorities.

:This is something (that we think can) encourage people (to be vaccinated). Not only for domestic travel, but we have started discussions with several countries to allow our citizens who have completed the two doses to travel there with certificates issued,” he said at a town hall session at the Borneo Convention Centre Kuching yesterday.

Muhyiddin is in Sarawak for a two-day working visit.

As of Wednesday, a total of 215,395 individuals in the first phase of the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme had completed their two vaccine doses.
