The government plans to set up special vaccinated travel lanes for those who travel between Malaysia and Singapore to facilitate cross-border travel between the two countries.
Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister Nancy Shukri said discussions on the matter involving several ministries from both countries are underway.
She said once approved, the establishment of the special vaccinated travel lanes would be announced by Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
“Other ministers will also discuss with their counterparts from Singapore, in order to ensure that it goes ahead smoothly.
“We will also bring up this matter at the National Security Council (NSC) meeting,” she told a press conference at the Parliament building today.
Singapore has opened up quarantine-free travel with conditions for vaccinated tourists from several countries such as the US and the K.
Meanwhile, Nancy said tourism industry players are ready to receive foreign tourists and will ensure that all SOPs set by the NSC are strictly followed.
