M’sia-SG VTL: Here’s How You Can Get Your COVID-19 Tests Done in KLIA & klia2

Complete your COVID-19 screenings right from the moment you arrive, or before you depart!

In case you missed it, fully-vaccinated citizens from both Malaysia and Singapore can now officially travel between both countries without any quarantine required via the newly established Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL). The VTL is slated to be operational by 29th November 2021, and will allow travellers to commute between both nations via KLIA (Kuala Lumpur International Airport) and Changi International Airport! 

All VTL travellers are required to get PCR tests

But before you head off to book your flight tickets, there are a few things you should take into account, aside from your vaccination status. All prospective VTL travellers are required to first conduct a RT-PCR COVID-19 screening and show proof of a negative test result two days prior to their departure from Malaysia and travelling into Singapore. For those arriving in Malaysia, you are also required to obtain another RT-PCR test when touching down.

BP Healthcare @ KLIA & klia2 have got you covered

Thankfully, instead of traveling separately to a medical clinic or hospital for your RT-PCR test, you can now choose to have it all done from the convenience of KLIA and klia2! Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB) have officially appointed BP Healthcare to set up dedicated COVID-19 screening centres at their airport terminals, allowing passengers to conduct all their necessary COVID-19 screenings ahead of their travel schedules.
