Malaysia’s healthcare tourism industry is anticipated to profit from the lifting of virus restrictions, such as airport testing and face masks, which have been in place during the epidemic.

In Malaysia, the requirement for mandatory testing of incoming vaccinated persons and children under 12 has been lifted. Masks are no longer necessary when going outside, and other forms of social isolation are no longer in use. Pre-departure polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) testing is no longer required for people who have been fully immunised.

Travelers who have not been vaccinated are nevertheless subject to some limitations. They still must be tested and quarantined for five days. Foreigners are no longer required to purchase travel insurance before entering the country.

Malaysia Airlines, the country’s flag carrier, welcomed the decision and said it will increase flights to and from the country.

With the help of the Malaysia Healthcare Travel Council (MHTC), the country’s national airline is promoting medical tourism. In addition to providing free or reduced-cost travel to medical tourists, it also sponsors medical familiarisation excursions to Malaysia.
