How to visit Malaysia under the VTL scheme - without quarantine

Be Travel-Ready: 5 Tips for Safer Trips During the Covid Recovery

 

The Singapore-Malaysia VTL (Vaccinated Travel Lane) scheme means Singaporeans can now visit Malaysia without having to quarantine.

So whether you want to visit friends or family for Chinese New Year, sunbathe on the island of Langkawi or trek in Taman Negara National Park, visiting Singapore's northern neighbour during the Covid recovery is now quicker, easier and less costly.

Before you plan any visit to Malaysia via VTL, it's important to prepare all the necessary documents so your trip goes as smoothly as possible

There has been huge demand for VTL Singapore-Malaysia bus tickets as Chinese New Year approaches. Authorities have restricted Woodlands Crossing ticket sales since the emergence of the Omicron variant.
