Malaysia opens

On the 1st of April 2022, Malaysia announced a re-opening of its borders after nearly two years of Covid-19 pandemic-related closures. Fully-vaccinated travelers can enjoy quarantine-free travel and are only required to take the Covid-19 RT-PCR test two days before departure and undergo professionally- administered RTK-Ag within 24 hours of arrival.

International travelers who are not fully vaccinated must undergo five-day quarantine upon arrival. Meanwhile, children and young people aged 12 to 17 are allowed quarantine-free entry and only need to undergo professionally-administered Covid-19 RTK-Ag within 24 hours upon arrival in Malaysia.

YB Dato’ Sri Hajah Nancy Shukri, Malaysia’s tourism minister, said “We are delighted with the latest announcement for the resumption of international travel, and look forward to engaging with airlines and the travel trade to promote Malaysia as a safe travel destination. The re-opening of borders, closed since March 2020, is significant as it marks the final phase in ending restrictions.

Now yachts can choose between two very different experiences in entering Malaysia, said Asia Pacific Superyachts co-founder, Scott Walker: “Yachts can enter Langkawi, the largest in an archipelago of 100 islands in the Andaman Sea, and enjoy a duty-free port and easy access for crew and visitors to shopping, dining, entertainment, sports, transport and other attractions. Or they can enter Borneo, offering an altogether adventurous prospect and cruising grounds, easily reached in this relatively small area and largely unexplored.”
