Malaysia cancels COVID-19 tests
The requirement for COVID-19 testing before departure to Malaysia and upon arrival for travelers fully vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine has been cancelled, starting from May 1, Malaysian Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin announced Sunday.

Travelers who have not been fully vaccinated need to take COVID-19 tests before their arrival in Malaysia and 24 hours after their arrival, he pointed out.
