Langkawi will be the first destination to be opened for tourism. The opening date is 16 September which coincides with Malaysia day.

According to a press statement sent out by the Ministry of Tourism, Art and Culture on Telegram, Langkawi will be open for domestic visitors who fulfil the SOP criteria, including those from Phase 1 states. However, this is not applicable to those who are living in EMCO areas.

Visitors can travel to Langkawi via air or land. For those using the land route, they will have to use the services of a travel agency to get from their starting point to the ferry jetty to Langkawi.
