Travelers can download and activate the MySejahtera app before or after arriving in Malaysia to indicate their COVID-19 risk status while in Malaysia. The COVID-19 risk status in MySejahtera can be checked upon entering the premises.

Travelers who develop symptoms of COVID-19 in Malaysia should get tested and if positive, are subject to the current protocol for positive cases of COVID-19 as below.

Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 must undergo isolation via a Home Supervision Order (HSO) for seven (7) days. Individuals can be released from isolation on Days 4, 5, or 6 when they are asymptomatic and a licensed physician-supervised RTK Ag test result is negative. Discharge on the 7th day does not require any COVID-19 detection test.
