Malaysia, Singapore to Reopen Land Border Starting April 1

    The land border between Singapore and Malaysia will fully open beginning April 1.

    In a joint statement, Lee Hsien Loong and Ismail Sabri Yaakob said fully vaccinated travellers do not have to undergo quarantine and Covid-19 testing before and after the arrival.

    This will apply to all categories of travellers and modes of transport via the land border.

    Both of the prime ministers agreed that it was time to further reopen the land route as both countries transitioned to living with the Covid-19.

    They also recognised the progress that both countries had made in vaccinating their respective populations and managing the Covid-19 pandemic. 

    Ismail said, “Today’s announcement reflects the good relations, multi-faceted cooperation, and strong ties between the people of the two countries. 

    “This will contribute to recovery efforts with a positive impact on the economy and well-being of the people of both countries.”

    Meanwhile, Lee said that Singapore and Malaysia enjoy strong, friendly relations in various aspects, as well as strong people-to-people relations.

    “Today’s announcement is an important event in our transition towards living with Covid-19. 

    It reflects the strong cooperation enjoyed by both sides throughout this pandemic. This will help both countries emerge stronger from this crisis,” Lee added.

    No quota for all travel modes when land border with Singapore reopens

    Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said that there will be no quota for all modes of travel applied.

    He said the land checkpoints at the Woodlands Causeway and the Tuas Second Link will also operate 24 hours daily.

    “For the land borders, there are no more quotas. Travellers may use all modes of transport at both border entry points. Be it at the Johor Causeway or Second Link.”  

    “Meanwhile for air travel, both governments have left it to the airlines to increase the frequency of flights from a commercial perspective.

    “There are no more restrictions. Everything is open,” he added.
