Traveller’s Pass no longer required for Malaysians returning home from July 4


PETALING JAYA: Starting July 4, Malaysians returning from overseas will no longer be required to fill in the Traveller’s Pass, says Khairy Jamaluddin.

"The rule was relaxed to ease the travel process for Malaysian citizens returning home while our health system is in a good and satisfactory state," the Health Minister said in a statement on Friday (July 1).

He said the requirement would be abolished in phases for other groups including social pass holders, student pass and permanent residence—but for now it only applies to Malaysian citizens.

Khairy said foreigners would still have to fill in the Traveller’s Pass on MySejahtera before entering the country.

He said besides Covid-19, this will allow the Health Ministry to monitor the outbreak of other infectious diseases such as monkey pox among those entering the country from abroad.
