Malaysia has lifted the entry ban imposed on travellers from Sri Lanka and four other countries.
The announcement has been made by the Immigration Department of Malaysia.
Accordingly, those with permanent resident status, long-stay passes, businessmen and investors can enter Malaysia from Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal.
The strict conditions were in place since the 26th of April to contain the spread of the coronavirus.
Malaysia’s Immigration Director-General Khairul Dzaimee Daud said that restrictions have been relaxed for selected travellers from five South Asian countries.
All travellers who have obtained entry approvals should be fully vaccinated, will have to undergo Covid-19 testing upon arrival and be quarantined for the period stipulated by the Health Ministry of Malaysia.
The ban on tourists from all nations still remains in place in Malaysia.
