Another good piece of news has come upon Malaysians and Indonesians! The two countries will launch a Vaccinated Travel lane as both countries are recovering from the Covid-19 pandemic as reported by New Straits Times. This means travelling between these two countries would not require a mandatory quarantine period. However, when this vaccinated travel lane will start is still in discussion but it won't be too long now! If you're planning to travel to Indonesia or Malaysia, here's what you should know ?

What You Should Know To Travel Between Malaysia & Indonesia

Like all vaccinated travel lanes, this means travelers and visitors won't need to undergo a quarantine period upon arrival at the airport of the country. But, you must show proof of vaccination and show a negative result of the Covid-19 PCR test. You also need to take another test and the result must be negative before you are allowed to travel around the country.

As of now, the travel corridor between Malaysia and Indonesia is only applicable for Kuala Lumpur and Jakarta only which means travelers from Indonesia are allowed to visit the capital city only. Langkawi will open for all foreign tourists starting Nov 15, but the northern island requires different procedures for international visitors who wish to travel there. They'd have to travel with a government-approved travel agency to enter Langkawi. Read here for more info!

There's a lack of information if this travel corridor will operate similarly like the VTL scheme between Malaysia and Singapore which means only designated flights are allowed to enter KL or Jakarta but follow us for more future updates! ☺️

Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri also mentioned that Bali might also reopen under this travel lane so possible routes at the moment are between KL-Jakarta-KL and KL-Bali-KL. Even though currently only Bali and Jakarta are opening for Malaysians, these two places have a lot to offer! Check out these articles to plan the best getaway for your Bali and Jakarta trips:
