Singapore and Malaysia have agreed to resume cross-border travel for some residents and business visitors, setting August 10 as the targeted start date. The first scheme, the Reciprocal Green Lane, allows travel for business and official purposes. A separate scheme, the Periodic Commuting Arrangement, extends to residents who hold long-term immigration passes for business and work purposes in the other country.
Eligible travellers will have to abide by the prevailing COVID-19 prevention and public health measures agreed upon by both countries. They will also have to submit a “controlled itinerary” to the receiving country, and adhere to this itinerary during their visit. Find out more here.
