The government of Malaysia has decided to lift the entry restriction for foreign nationals from certain countries, including Bangladesh.
The decision will come into immediate effect, said a notice issued by the High Commission of Malaysia in Dhaka today.
The entry into Malaysia will be allowed, on a case-by-case basis upon obtaining a prior entry approval from the Immigration Department of Malaysia through MyTravelPass or MyEntry (https://www.imi.gov.my) for Malaysian permanent resident, long term pass holders, business travellers and investors.
The Malaysia entry seekers will also have to be fully vaccinated and provide a negative Covid-19 RT-PCR test result.
The Health Ministry of Malaysia also made quarantine mandatory through https://www.covid-19.moh.gov.my/ for the travelers.
Travelers will get pre-approved visa related information at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com or they can contact the visa hotline at +88 017 9200 0766.
Earlier on May 5, Malaysia imposed a travel ban on citizens of Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Nepal.
The move followed a temporary ban on flights from and to India to stop a new Covid-19 variant from entering Malaysia.
