A new requirement for returning Malaysians and foreigners to be quarantined at designated hotel upon arrival has been introduced effective 24 July 2020. Malaysians who are returning home and foreigners who are allowed to enter Malaysia are subject to 100% of total quarantine cost at the designated hotel. It is mandatory for returning Malaysians and these foreigners to submit LoU via email to the nearest Malaysian Embassy before they board their flight to Kuala Lumpur. 

In this regard, please submit the completed LoU letter via link : https://drive.google.com/file/d/1KvKxbHxQmC2Zmod2EuItbOSBibfAPi1f/view?usp=sharing, copy of flight ticket, copy of passport and entry approval from Immigration- MTP (mandatory for foreigners only) via email to us at least three working days before your actual date of departure. Attached herewith is a copy of LoU form template, for your further action. Once the Embassy received your completed LoU, we will issue you a Letter to Perform Journey to Malaysia via email. This letter must be submitted to the airline check in counter at the airport.

Starting 14 December 2020 onwards, the total duration for quarantine has been reduced from 14 days to 10 days. However, travellers who have a less than 72 hours negative SWAB test result prior to departure will be allowed to quarantine in a designated centre for 7 days only. For those that do not have one, they are required to undergo a SWAB test upon arrival at KLIA and will be quarantine in a designated centre for a maximum of 10 days.

Beginning 15 November 2020, foreigners who are allowed to enter Malaysia are required to make payment for the quarantine online before leaving for Malaysia.  All proof of payments must be submitted at the counter upon arrival at KLIA, prior COVID-19 detection test and quarantine placement.
