Malaysia to ease travel curbs when 90% vaccination target hit

Genting Malaysia

Malaysia is set to shed interstate travel restrictions once 90 percent of the adult population is fully vaccinated,  Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob said in a statement on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, Malaysian Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri announced that Malaysia’s Resorts World Genting and two other tourism destinations will be given the green light to reopen by October 1, as the country expands its domestic travel bubble.

The announcement came a day after the country met its 80 percent full vaccination target.
