Malaysians allowed to travel abroad without MyTravelPass from tomorrow 

PUTRAJAYA: The government has agreed to allow Malaysians who have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19 to travel abroad without MyTravelPass (MTP) of the Immigration Department effective tomorrow, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
He said the decision to abolish MTP was among others to reunite family members and spouses who were separated from Malaysians working abroad and those carrying out business activities.
“However, the approval is subject to the individual having been completely vaccinated and travellers are still required to undergo quarantine upon returning to the country,” he said in a special media conference aired live via local television stations and social media platforms this evening.
MTP, introduced by the Immigration Department on Oct 7 last year, is the permit for Malaysians and foreigners to enter and exit the country through the system.
Asked on the country’s checkpoints which had been opened to foreign tourists, Ismail Sabri said they are still not open except on emergency or official government matters.
“The Health Ministry (MOH) will be evaluating the opening of national gateways to foreign tourists and it would be announced soon,” he said.
