Sabah now open to travellers from Peninsula, Sarawak, Labuan


KOTA KINABALU — The state government has decided to allow travels from peninsular Malaysia, Sarawak and Labuan to Sabah via air, land and sea, said Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal.

He said the permission to enter is granted to all civil servants, private sector employees and Malaysians including Sabahans who are in the peninsula, Sarawak and Labuan.

Mohd Shafie said the state government has agreed to exempt them from undergoing quarantine on the condition that they have tested negative for COVID-19 within three days before entering Sabah.

“A confirmation letter from the Malaysian Ministry of Health should be presented upon arrival in Sabah,” he said in a statement today.

Mohd Shafie said the state government welcomes Malaysians visiting Sabah to stay at hotels, which have reopened since May 10.

Malaysians who are not Sabahans as well as non-Malaysians are required to present a valid work pass along with other valid passes upon arrival in the state, he added.
