Your Pre-Departure Checklist:

What if I tested positive for COVID-19?

Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 must undergo isolation via a Home Surveillance Order (HSO) for seven (7) days. Individuals can be released from isolation on the 4th, 5th, or 6th day when they are asymptomatic and the result of an RTK Ag test supervised by a registered medical practitioner is negative. Discharge on the 7th day does not require any COVID-19 detection test.

Refer to this announcement by the Ministry of Health (MOH) Malaysia for more info.

Should I wear masks in Malaysia?
From 1 May 2022, wearing a face mask in outdoor public spaces is optional. You must still wear a face mask in indoor areas. Proof of COVID-19 vaccination may still be required on entry to some indoor areas. You must wear a face mask at airports, on public transport and in e-hailing vehicles and taxis.
