IMPACT OF BORDER REOPENING ON PRIVATE DRIVERS AND MOTORCYCLE RIDERS MAKING TRIPS BETWEEN SINGAPORE AND MALAYSIA

MP Louis Chua

Mr Chua Kheng Wee Louis asked the Minister for Transport whether the Government can allow private drivers and motorcycle riders from Singapore to enter Malaysia and return to Singapore following Malaysia’s border reopening on 1 April 2022, or otherwise to expand such private commute under the Vaccinated Travel Lane (Land) scheme. 

Mr S Iswaran: As announced by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and Prime Minister of Malaysia Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri Yaakob on 24 March 2022, Singapore and Malaysia will reopen our land borders for fully vaccinated travellers from 31 March 2022, 2359 hours. All fully vaccinated travellers, and non-fully vaccinated children aged 12 and below, are permitted to enter Singapore without the need to undergo border health measures, such as testing and quarantine. The Ministry for Trade and Industry has also issued a press release sharing more details. 

In addition to the designated vaccinated travel bus services, fully vaccinated travellers may cross the Causeway and Second Link via private vehicles, such as cars and motorcycles. Singapore and Malaysia are also progressively restoring other modes of transport.
