The Malaysian authorities on Monday reduced the quarantine for arrivals to the country to seven days, provided they complete a full course of vaccination against covid before entry. This is stated in a statement by Health Minister Khairi Jamaluddin.

“Citizens of Malaysia, as well as foreigners who are allowed to enter the country, with full immunization, will be in isolation for seven days. These concessions also apply to those arriving from countries classified as unfavorable in terms of the spread of coronavirus,” the head of the department emphasized. "For everyone else, including those who are partially vaccinated, the previous quarantine remains - 10 days," Khairi added.

According to him, from Monday, the isolation period is also reduced to seven days for vaccinated residents who have been in close contact with infected SARS-CoV-2.

Malaysian authorities resumed travel around the country from October 11 for those who received both doses of the vaccine. This became possible after vaccination of 90% of adult residents. At the same time, Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yacob promised those who refuse immunization "the loss of certain benefits." In particular, they will not be able to visit cafes, restaurants, travel around the country, visit their relatives on major religious holidays, and perform the Hajj.

The state immunization program uses drugs from AstraZeneca, Pfizer-BioNTech and Sinovac.
