ANNOUNCEMENT : ENTERING MALAYSIA FROM 24 JULY 2020
ENTERING MALAYSIA FROM 24 JULY 2020
Effective from 24 July 2020, the Government of Malaysia has decided that any person entering Malaysia from abroad will be subjected to a compulsory 14-days quarantine at any of the Quarantine Stations designated by the Government of Malaysia.
Any person entering Malaysia through the International Entry Point (PMA) will bear the full quarantine costs. The quarantine cost is RM150 per person per day. For people with Disabilities (OKU) cardholders issued by the Social Welfare Department, the cost of quarantine will be borne by the Government of Malaysia. Sponsored students will be covered by their sponsors. Students from B40 families are welcomed to apply for exemption/assistance from the Government.
The full Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) can be viewed at the following link:
Essentially, all travellers entering Malaysia from 24 July 2020 onwards must:
- Complete and sign the Letter of Undertaking and Indemnity (LoU)
Travellers to Malaysia must complete and sign the Letter of Undertaking and Indemnity (LoU) which can be downloaded from the following links:
Each traveller aged 18 years old and above must complete the LoU individually.
Please leave the “Disaksikan/Witnessed” section blank.
- Obtain the Letter of Approval (Entry Permit) from the Malaysia Mission in Australia
Each applicant must email the completed and signed LoU along with a copy of their passport and flight itinerary to the following addresses at least three (3) days before the date of departure.
If you are in Victoria: email@example.com
If you are in Western Australia: firstname.lastname@example.org
For all other states: email@example.com
Subject to approval, the High Commission/Consulate General will issue the Letter of Entry Permit email to the applicant. The letter will have validity of one (1) month.
The LoU and Letter of Approval are documents to satisfy the quarantine order. Entry to Malaysia is still subject to existing immigration laws and regulations (including MCO rules where applicable).
- Present the LoU and Letter of Approval to Airlines and Immigration Department of Malaysia
The Letter of Approval along with the LoU, must be presented during the flight check-in process. Failure to present the letters may result in the person being denied permission to board the aircraft.
Malaysian nationals without the LoU and Letter of Approval will still be allowed to enter Malaysia, however failure to comply with the instructions outlined by the Government of Malaysia will complicate the registration procedures at the entry port (PMA) and delay the quarantine process.
The Immigration Department reserves the right to issue Not-to-Land (NTL) Order to non-citizens without the LoU.
- Install, register and activate the MySejahtera mobile application
More details for the MySejahtera including how to download it is available at the following link:
Essential information such as travel information (date and time, flight information, port of embarkation) as well as health declaration need to be registered in MySejahtera at least one (1) day from date of departure.
- COVID-19 test before entering Malaysia
Travellers to Malaysia are not required to take the COVID-19 test before departure.
