What are the current travel restrictions for Penang?

Currently, Malaysia travel restrictions include travel to Penang. Entry restrictions

Malaysia has restricted entry to all travelers through at least December 31, except for citizens, permanent residents with a MyPR card, diplomats, embassy employees, and spouses or children of Malaysian nationals, who must have a sticker label visa in the passport specifically indicating this status. Travelers with a Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) permit and a printed entry permit from the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture and students with a student pass for a Malaysian institution may also enter the country. On July 11, Malaysian Immigration issued updated guidelines for expatriate, skilled worker, and knowledge worker pass holders and their dependents to request permission to return to Malaysia. These guidelines also include instructions for pass holders currently in Malaysia who wish to depart and then return to Malaysia. Check the Malaysian Immigration website for more information.

Entry requirements

From August 17, all foreign residents who are returning to the country will be required to complete an application on the MYEntry online platform. Airline crew must present a "Health Declaration Form" upon arrival, are subject to quarantine until their next flight, and must install the 'MySejahtera' app.

Quarantine requirements

All arriving travelers will be tested on arrival, and are subject to a 14-day quarantine requirement in a government facility. All costs for the quarantine are borne by the traveler. Travelers will be required to download the MySejahtera application and will be issued a wristband for identification and monitoring by the authorities during their quarantine period. Foreigners with valid visas or work permits who entered Malaysia BEFORE the MCO began on March 16 may enter Sarawak without quarantine, but must request advance permission from the Sarawak State Disaster Management Committee (SDMC). Foreigners with valid visas or work permits who entered Malaysia during the MCO will be subject to a mandatory 14-day quarantine in a government facility at their own expense, and must first request advance permission from SDMC. As of July 28, all foreigners who enter Sarawak from overseas will be required to undergo COVID-19 testing on the second and tenth day. They will be responsible for covering the costs of their quarantine and testing. More information is available here.

Transiting rules
