Singapore and Malaysia will reopen its land borders for fully vaccinated travellers from 11.59pm on March 31.

As such, all fully vaccinated travellers will be able to cross the borders via cars and motorcycles, as well as other private vehicles, in addition to the designated vaccinated travel bus services.

In a statement released by the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI), both countries are also looking into restoring other modes of transport including cross-border public bus services.

All fully vaccinated travellers and non-fully vaccinated children aged 12 and below will no longer be required to take a pre-departure test (PDT) and unsupervised self-administered Antigen Rapid Test (ART) after arriving in Singapore.

Serving stay-home notices (SHN) will also no longer be required.

The relaxed measures will apply to fully vaccinated Malaysian cargo delivery personnel as well.

In addition, fully vaccinated travellers will not be required to apply for entry approvals such as the vaccinated travel pass.

Travellers can also use the vaccination check portal on the SafeTravel website to submit their digital vaccination certificates in advance.

Further to its statement, the ministry warned that there may be a surged in travellers looking to cross the land borders, and that members of the public are advised not to rush to travel if they have no urgent need to do so.
