Ever since the first MCO, travelling interstate has been viewed as a privilege, much less travelling between countries. Many Malaysians whose family members are working in Singapore have not seen their loved ones for more than a year.

On 2 May the respective Ministers of Foreign Affairs from both Singapore and Malaysia met and announced a travel scheme between the two countries. The said travel scheme is only applicable to those who need to visit their loved ones who are critically ill or in the event that any death occurs.

“To this end, the two Ministers agreed on the procedures and entry requirements for death and critically ill emergency visits between Singapore and Malaysia. This agreement provides a framework to facilitate travel between the two countries for compassionate and emergency reasons.”

According to a joint statement by both ministries, the procedure and entry requirements will be released by the Immigration departments of the respective countries and the travelling scheme will take place from 17 May onwards.

“Parents, grandparents, uncles, aunties, cousins, and when a family crisis occurs, people want to get together, and therefore, bearing in mind this very special close relationship between the people of Singapore and the people of Malaysia, it is necessary to have schemes like this.”

Further details such as Covid-19 tests and quarantine arrangements will be released soon, according to Channel News Asia.
