Starting 1 April 2022, Malaysia is reopening its borders to international visitors! That means less entry requirements to travel quarantine-free once again!

Meanwhile, Singapore is also replacing its Vaccinated Travel Lanes with the new Vaccinated Travel Framework. We know, things are changing pretty quick, so here’s a guide to travelling between Singapore and Malaysia over Land and Air for vaccinated travellers.

*For daytrippers without a lodging address in Malaysia, we’ve heard that other travellers have indicated “Johor” under “address” and managed to submit it in the app.

– Register for a Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP)
– Successful applicants will have the VEP RFID tag installed on their vehicle

Toll charges will be waived from 1 to 7 April to ease the movement of vehicles.

Non-drivers are eligible for this if travelling on the following modes of transport:
Vaccinated-travel bus services operated by Malaysia and Singapore bus operators
– Public transport including chartered buses, cross-border bus services, employee buses, tour/express buses, and taxi
– Private cars and motorcycles
– Pedestrians can walk across the causeway
