According to news reports from August 27, Malaysia’s borders will remain closed to non-Malaysians looking to return to work in the country.
This affects non-Malaysian workers currently stuck in neighboring countries like Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines.
Currently, only specific non-Malaysians who meet the criteria, such as spouses or business owners, are allowed into the country.
Foreigners entering Malaysia are now subject to a 14-day quarantine in designated centres upon arrival and will need to pay for their quarantine and COVID-19 test fees.
