JOHOR BARU: The implementation of the Vaccinated Travel Lane by sea (VTL-Sea) could be brought up for discussion at the Malaysia-Singapore Joint Ministerial Committee (JMC) meeting as early as January.

Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Hasni Mohammad said the VTL-Sea was suggested by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob in a recent meeting with his Singapore counterpart Lee Hsien Loong.

“PM Lee responded that it could be considered.

“If both countries are agreeable, maybe a joint task force (could be formed) to discuss this immediately.

“The special travel lane will definitely improve the local tourism sector,” he told a press conference after launching the Iskandar Perantis Programme at Educity Sports Complex in Iskandar Puteri here on Monday (Dec 6).

Hasni said the suggested VTL-Sea route would be between Desaru Coast Ferry Terminal and Singapore’s Tanah Merah.

Both prime ministers and other government ministers met during Ismail Sabri's official visit to Singapore in conjunction with the commencement of the air and land VTL between the two countries on Nov 29.
