KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 28 ― The government plans to set up special vaccinated travel lanes for those who travel between Malaysia and Singapore to facilitate cross-border travel between the two countries.
Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri said discussions on the matter involving several ministries from both countries were underway.
She said once approved, the establishment of the special vaccinated travel lanes would be announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
“Other ministers will also discuss with their counterparts from Singapore, in order to ensure then goes ahead smoothly.
