Open Borders to Foreigners From Jan. 1, Former Malaysia PM Says
(Bloomberg) -- Malaysia should reopen its borders to international visitors by Jan. 1 to revive its sluggish tourism sector, the Star reported, citing a government advisory council.
While the country has gradually reopened its economy amid declining Covid cases, the tourism industry is recovering too slowly without foreigners, the report cited National Recovery Council Chairman Muhyiddin Yassin as saying.
Infection control measures such as Covid tests will continue, with authorities to determine entry of foreigners based on the pandemic situation in originating countries, other local media cited the former prime minister as saying.
