Updated MALAYSIA TRAVEL REQUIREMENTS for Tourists 2022

MALAYSIA TRAVEL REQUIREMENTS for Tourists Cebu Pacific

Planning a trip to Malaysia? What are the travel requirements to enter Malaysia?


Malaysia is open to tourists! And it’s now so easy to travel to Malaysia because there are no travel requirements when coming from the Philippines! Yes, you heard it right, there are no travel requirements needed to enter Malaysia!

We recently had an awesome trip to Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia last November 4 to 8, 2022. From Manila, we took a Cebu Pacific flight from NAIA terminal 3. Although we prepared our vaccine certificate from VaxCertPH, we were not asked to present any travel requirements at the Cebu Pacific Air check-in counter to take our flight to Kota Kinabalu. We also prepared our MySejahtera application in case they ask for it. This app is not mandatory but travelers to Malaysia are encouraged to download and register on the app. You may download and activate the MySejahtera app before or after arrival to Malaysia to indicate your COVID-19 risk status while staying in Malaysia.

In summary, as of November 4, 2022, all travellers are allowed to enter Malaysia regardless of their COVID-19 vaccination status. Based on our recent travel experience, no travel requirements are needed to enter Malaysia. But, I highly recommend that you download and save on your phone your vaccination certificate from VaxCertPH in case the airport staff or immigration officer asks for it.

Travel Requirements when Traveling Back to the Philippines


Traveling back to the Philippines, you need to have a proof of full vaccination and eARRIVAL card. When checking-in for our flight from Kota Kinabalu to the Philippines, the Cebu Pacific staff asked us to present our vaccination certificate and eARRIVAL QR code from Bureau of Quarantine's One Health Pass website. After checking the requirements, the staff will give you your boarding pass.

REMINDERS: To avoid any inconvenience, be sure to generate your eARRIVAL QR code before going to you airport. You may fill out and register to the eARRIVAL CARD website within 72 hours prior to your departure from Malaysia. Registration is FREE OF CHARGE and does not require or collect any online payment. BEWARE of fake, fraudulent, or scam websites and entities who require payment from the travelers. This applies for Filipino travelers (OFWs, Tourists, and Balikbayans), as well as foreign nationals visiting the Philippines.

Upon arrival in the Philippines, you need to present your eARRIVAL QR code which will be scanned by the staff of the Bureau of Quarantine. After that, pass through the immigration, claim your checked-in baggage (if you have any), and pass through customs check. That's it! Welcome back to the Philippines!

REMINDER: Travel requirements may change from time to time. Always double-check with your airline for any changes in the current travel requirements for tourists traveling to Malaysia. When traveling back to the Philippines, check with the IATF guidelines or with the Bureau of Quarantine for any update on travel requirements to enter the Philippines.
