Travel to Sarawak requires swab test, 14-day quarantine

 


COVID-19 | Everyone who travels to Sarawak for work purposes has to take a swab test three days before the departure and undergo a 14-day quarantine as soon as they land.

The rule also applies to travellers who have permission from the police for other matters, said Defence Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

For Sarawakians, the state government will bear the swab test and quarantine cost.

Other requirements involving to and from Peninsular Malaysia and East Malaysia and within the latter are as follow:

  • From other states to Sabah: Travellers who arrive for work or have obtained permission from the police for other matters have to take a swab test three days before their departure to Sabah. There will be no quarantine upon landing.
  • From Sabah to Peninsular: No swab test required.
  • From Sabah to Sarawak or Labuan: Swab test must be taken three days before departure.
  • From Sarawak to Peninsular: No swab test required.
  • From Sarawak to Sabah and Labuan: Swab test three days before departure. No quarantine upon landing.
  • From Peninsular to Labuan: Swab test three days before departure.
  • From Labuan to Peninsular: No swab test required.

Ismail also said that no inter-district travels are allowed within Sabah and Sarawak on the request of the respective state governments.

As for inter-state travels, he said the National Security Council (NSC) will consider lifting the restriction between recovery MCO states and green zone areas.

However, he said, the NSC is scrutinising the matter as some places have conditional MCO areas in between them, which could potentially be a loophole.

"How do you go from Putrajaya (recovery MCO) to Malacca (recovery MCO) by passing through Negeri Sembilan which is on the conditional MCO ? It's not easy to monitor, so we are reviewing this problem," he said.

On a separate matter, Ismail announced the enhanced movement control order (MCO) on Henry Gurney school in Malacca after 152 people, majority of them students, tested positive for Covid-19. - Mkini
