The health ministers of Malaysia and Singapore agreed to work on resuming travel completely between the two countries considering the pandemic situation has stabilized, Malaysian Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin wrote on Twitter.

The two ministers agreed they can immediately work on enabling full resumption of air and land travel for fully vaccinated people, Khairy said. He met with his counterpart Ong Ye Kung earlier Wednesday to discuss details for the border reopening, Khairy said in an earlier tweet.

Malaysia is set to reopen its borders to fully vaccinated travellers from April 1 after two years of restrictions to contain Covid, which is now shifting toward the endemic phase of the outbreak. Malaysia and Singapore allowed visits between the two nations in November by air and land on a limited quota basis. Air travel initially started with flights between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, while services to Penang were added last week.
