Opening Border

‚ÄčThere is no official discussion been made with the Malaysian Government currently in regards to the possibility of the reopening of border with the neighbouring country. The matter was shared by the Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office and Second Minister of Finance and Economy during the question and answer session yesterday afternoon.


Yang Berhormat said even if the country opens its border such matter should not be taken lightly. For example between Singapore and China, they open a special lane that has several regulations. For example swabbing before boarding the plane and swabbing once again after arriving. While waiting for the swabbing result, the passenger must be isolated for several days. This is not open for normal travel but specifically for business or official visit. At the moment, Brunei Darussalam is still not ready to open its borders, hence no negotiation has been made. If the country decides to open its borders, several precaution will be taken and assess the development of the neighbouring country first.
