The Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) between Singapore and Malaysia is set to open on Nov 29, and will start with six flights a day between Changi Airport and Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

The six flights will be operated by AirAsia, Jetstar Asia, Malaysia Airlines, Scoot, Singapore Airlines and Malindo Air. Applications for the Vaccinated Travel Pass (VTP) for travellers in Malaysia will open on Nov 22 at 10am. 

Under this VTL, travellers from VTL countries can enter Singapore without needing to quarantine themselves. Travellers will just need to undergo two Polymerase Chain REACTION (PCR) tests.

The first test must be taken within two days before departure, and the second test will be taken on arrival in Changi Airport. For the second test, travellers will have to self-isolate until it is confirmed to be negative.

Travellers who have taken a PCR test upon arrival at KLIA may use their negative on-arrival test result to fulfil the pre-departure test requirement before entering Singapore, as long as the on-arrival test in Malaysia was taken within two days from the time of departure for Singapore. 

Notably, travellers must have stayed only in VTL countries, Singapore or Category 1 regions 14 days prior to their departure to Singapore. Category 1 regions include Hong Kong, Macau, mainland China and Taiwan. 

Travellers have to buy travel insurance, with a minimum coverage of S$30,000 for COVID-19-related medical treatment, before entering Singapore. They must also use the TraceTogether app when in Singapore.
