On 8 February, the National Recovery Council suggested for Malaysia's international borders to be fully reopened without going through mandatory quarantine by 1 March 2022. However, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said that visitors should still undergo Covid-19 tests before and after arriving in the country.
“The council suggested, firstly, that the borders of the country be fully opened in the near future to support the recovery of the country. In this regard, the Council agreed that the country’s borders could be fully opened as early as March 1, 2022 without the need for mandatory quarantine,” he said in a press conference.
“However, the COVID-19 test before departure and upon arrival at the national border gate must be done according to the MOH’s recommendations. The opening of national borders needs to be implemented in a planned manner and based on current risk assessments,” Muhyiddin added.
Meanwhile, Australia also announced that its international borders will be reopened by 21 February 2022. Do you think it's a good idea?
