Vaccinated Travel Lane By Air Between Malaysia And Singapore

The Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) by air between Malaysia and Singapore is a framework to facilitate two-way travel by individuals who have been fully vaccinated by COVID-19 vaccine.

Under the VTL, fully vaccinated travellers from one country may enter the other country without quarantine, subject to COVID-19 testing and further requirements determined by the receiving country. This will allow both parties to achieve the objective of resuming air connectivity in a safe and careful manner.
