Singapore-Malaysia Land Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL)

1. Phases

The land VTL between Singapore and Malaysia will be happening in phases. Although it is unclear what all the phases will consist of yet, we do know that the first phase will focus mainly on Singaporean and Malaysian workers.

Priority will be going to workers who have worked in either country! You can now head back home to visit your family in phase one. A Malaysian worker working in Singapore can head back to Malaysia in the first phase and vice versa.

2. How Workers Can Get Back Home

As of right now, anyone who wishes to travel by the land VTL has to travel via designated bus services, just like in the air VTL.

Currently, there are only 2 possible bus services available: Transtar Travel pte ltd and Handal Indah Sdn. Bhd. However, if you choose to walk or take a private means of transportation, you'll have to serve a seven day stay home notice (SHN).

3. You Can Only Travel Via Causeway

While the authorities in both Singapore and Malaysia are still working toward travel via Tuas, Malaysian and Singaporean workers can only travel via the Causeway right now. Stay tuned for more updates!

4. Testing And Vaccination

All who wish to travel via the VTL need to have been vaccinated by World Health Organisation Emergency Use Listing vaccines issued in Singapore or any VTL country. To cross the causeway, present digital proof of vaccination.

You will also need to test negative for your PCR test or ART test. This applies to anyone traveling both ways. If you are traveling to Malaysia however, you will also need to take an arrival ART test at Larkin Sentral Bus Terminal.

Good news, though! Children who are two years or younger need not undergo these tests.?

5. SG On Arrival Card

Last but not least, if you're traveling from Malaysia to SG, make sure to submit your On-Arrival Card 3 days before arrival!

That's it, that's all you need to know about the SG-MY land VTL for now. Stay tuned to find out what developments may happen in the next few days. ? Safe travels!
