No Fully vaccinated individuals will be allowed to enter Sarawak without having to undergo the 14-day quarantine as previously implemented. This will take effect on 16 September 2021.

According to Astro Awani, the decision was made by the Sarawak State Disaster Management Committee (JPBN) after assessing the Covid-19 situation in Sarawak and other states, and following the increase of vaccinated individuals nationwide.

Chairman Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas said in a statement that the decision only applies to individuals from Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and Labuan. However, he said that a permit from the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) is still needed.

On the other hand, unvaccinated or partially vaccinated individuals would have to undergo quarantine for 10 days at designated quarantine hotels.
