Tourism Malaysia would like to take this opportunity to announce that Malaysia has reopened the country’s international borders for Healthcare Travellers.

Healthcare Travellers and their companion(s) who are allowed entry into Malaysia for healthcare treatments must comply with immigration regulations as facilitated by Malaysia Healthcare Travel Council (MHTC), including an isolation period of 14 days within the appointed MHTC member hospital, while strictly adhering to the applicable isolation protocols in the hospital.

The Malaysian Government has recently approved three phases that aim to regulate Healthcare Travellers coming into the country:

  • Phase 1, patient entry during the RMCO and the imposition of international travel restrictions. Healthcare Traveler also requires traveling into the country via medical evacuation planes, chartered flights, or private jets.
  • Phase 2, patient entry from green zone countries using commercial aircraft as well as medical evacuation planes, chartered flight, or private jets.
  • Phase 3, the patient entry following relaxation on international travel restrictions.

During the RMCO, healthcare travelers must comply with the previously determined Phase 1 SOPs. In this initial phase, patients who undergo healthcare treatments in Malaysia must adhere to the following procedures:

  • Travel using chartered flights, or air ambulance (travel using commercial aircraft is not permitted).
  • Only 1 (one) companion is allowed for adult patients, while pediatric patients are allowed to bring 2 (two), companions.
  • Patients and their companions must undergo isolation of 14 days at the hospital.
  • Patients and their companions must undergo three COVID-19 PCR tests:
    • Test 1, three days before departure at approved centers.
    • Test 2, upon arrival at the hospital.
    • Test 3, on the 13th day of isolation.
  • COVID-19 PCR tests are mandatory for patients and their companions.
  • Only patients and their companions who pass the initial COVID-19 PCR test can travel to Malaysia.
  • Following the completion of the treatment, patients and their companions are required to take a final PCR test. If their COVID-19 test results are negative, they will then be allowed to return home to Cambodia.
