PUTRAJAYA (Bernama): Malaysia and Singapore have reaffirmed their commitment to work together towards recognising each other’s Covid-19 vaccine certificates, with a view towards facilitating cross-border travel in the future.

Malaysian Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein (pic) and his visiting Singaporean counterpart Dr Vivian Balakrishnan said this in a joint statement on Tuesday (March 23).

They said both countries will also continue to make progress on their respective national vaccination programmes to vaccinate long-term residents, including Malaysians residing in Singapore and Singaporeans residing in Malaysia.

Both ministers stated that the two countries will progressively restore cross-border travel for other groups of travellers in addition to the Reciprocal Green Lane (RGL) and the Periodic Commuting Arrangement (PCA), taking into account the Covid-19 situation in both countries, and ensuring the public health and safety of the residents of both countries.

“The operational details of the Reciprocal Recognition of Vaccine Certificate between Malaysia and Singapore, including the detailed requirements, health protocols, and application process involved for entry and exit into Malaysia and Singapore will be further deliberated and finalised by both parties, ” the statement said. - Bernama
