Effective June 1, 2020, foreign nationals, holding a valid
permit such as an Employment Pass, Professional Visit Pass, etc.,
may enter Malaysia. An approval letter will need to be applied for
at the respective Malaysian Mission by completing a Letter of
Undertaking and Indemnity, at least three days before the date of
departure. The Letter of Undertaking and Indemnity states that the
individual will bear the costs of the mandatory quarantine. Upon
arrival in Malaysia, screening for COVID-19 will take place and the
foreign national must go into quarantine for 14 days. Foreigners
will be required to bear the full costs, whereas Malaysian
nationals will bear 50% of the costs.
Those who may be affected are encouraged to contact an
immigration specialist for case-specific advice.
