Johor Chief Minister Hasni Mohammad claimed that a land-based Vaccination Travel Lane (VTL) between Singapore and Johor could be kickstarted as soon as 29 November.
He made the claims on 18 November, saying that he could confirm that a land border crossing would be implemented following talking between both sides.
According to Kosmo, Hasni made the claims at a Desaru hotel, Four Points by Sheraton.
“I have good news to share, we have communicated with the authorities from the federal and state governments and confirmed that the land border crossing will open on Nov. 29.
Travelling on land between Singapore and Johor Bahru will only be for long-term pass (border) holders, those working in Singapore, and Singaporeans working in Johor Bahru.
The federal government is considering making land travel arrangements between Singapore and Johor Bahru, similar to the arrangement between Changi to KLIA.”
The Ministry of Trade and Industry said that they were working with their Malaysian counterparts to further “restore connectivity”, and that they will make the announcement soon once the details of the VTL are finalized.
They also highlighted good progress on the talks with Malaysia.
