KUCHING: Fully vaccinated individuals will be exempted from mandatory quarantine upon arrival in Sarawak from other parts of Malaysia, says the state disaster management committee.
It said the decision, which comes into effect today, takes into consideration the increased level of vaccination in the country.
Individuals must still apply for entry via the EnterSarawak app or website, fill in the e-health declaration form and submit proof of their vaccination status.
They must also provide a negative result from a PCR test within three days before travel.
"Children below 18 entering Sarawak with their fully vaccinated parents will be exempted from quarantine.
"However, they are advised to do self-monitoring at home for 10 days," the committee said yesterday.
The committee said unvaccinated individuals or those who have not completed their vaccination must still undergo 10-day quarantine at a designated quarantine hotel upon entry into Sarawak.
It also said there were no changes to the entry guidelines for those arriving from overseas.
