Malaysia to open special lanes for travellers arriving from China

MALAYSIA: Amid Covid-19 concerns from travellers arriving from China, the Immigration Department will operate special lanes at international entry points, with cooperation with the Health Ministry.

Health director-general Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said travellers from China who are symptomatic will be referred to health officials, and will undergo throat swabs as well as RTK-Antigen Covid-19 tests.

Malaysia also stepped up screening measures for all travellers. Visitors entering Malaysia will be screened through a thermal scanner and those who are found to be ill or symptomatic, or had made self-declarations or self-referrals, will undergo further examination.
