The PM explained that we are targeting to reopen the country’s borders once vaccination rate hits 90%.
According to reports, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob is targeting to allow denizens to travel freely within the country and overseas in the month of December 2021, once the country has achieved a 90% vaccination rate for adults.
The PM explained that this could happen even sooner and implied that travellers would no longer be banned from crossing state borders.
He also said that once the country is ready, international travellers would also no longer need to apply for the MyTravelPass (MTP) system to go abroad.
Throughout the Covid-19 crisis, it has only allowed certain people – like those going for work, study or to be with their spouses overseas – to travel outside Malaysia.
However, it is mentioned that overseas travellers would still need to be quarantined accordingly based on Covid-19 health protocols during their travels.
The latest figures shared by Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin show that Malaysia has vaccinated nearly 88% of our adult population.
The minister also mentioned that the majority of Malaysia’s youths have also been vaccinated at least once.
