Vaccinated travellers need not get travel insurance

 Friday, April 1, 2022 


In a latest COVID-19 travel update, fully vaccinated short-term visitors do not require travel insurance for entering Singapore or Malaysia via the land border from April 1, 2022.

The announcement was made by Singapore’s Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI) on Wednesday following an update by the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA).

As of now, short-term visitors need travel insurance to get inside Singapore. The insurance must have a minimum coverage of S$30000 (INR 16,67,149).

Likewise, travel insurance has been removed for short-term visitors who are completely vaccinated and travelling via the land borders at the Causeway and Second Link for Malaysia.

Malaysia’s Health Ministry took to a social networking site to explain these exemptions on Wednesday.

However, if a traveller is partially or unvaccinated, he/she will have to buy travel insurance with a minimum coverage of US$20000, informed Malaysia’s health ministry.

The governments of Singapore and Malaysia are relaxing travel restrictions for fully vaccinated travellers from both nations, allowing them to cross the land border by private transport.

On the other hand, the Malaysian government has also announced plans to remove toll charges at the Causeway and Second Link immigration complexes from April 1 to 7 on all vehicles.

Prime Minister of Malaysia Ismail Sabri Yaakob said, this is in line with the approach to ease the cross border movement with Singapore.

This exemption is for Malaysians and other users who top-up or renew their Touch ‘n Go and Smart Tag.
