KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia and Singapore will discuss the reopening of borders through a dedicated air travel lane for vaccinated people, says Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri.

The Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister said she will be meeting with Singapore's Trade and Industry Minister on Friday (Oct 29) to discuss the matter.

"This will be discussed tomorrow," she told a press conference in Parliament on Thursday (Oct 28).

Malaysia is looking to reopen its borders to foreign travel as early as December, with all the standard operating procedures currently being prepared.

Currently, international tourists are only allowed to visit Langkawi under a pilot travel bubble programme which is slated to begin on Nov 15 as announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

However, the official announcement will only be made after the matter is approved by the National Security Council, said Nancy.

"The Prime Minister will announce it if everything goes as planned," she added.
