This comes in the wake of Johor’s Chief Minister Hasni Mohammad claiming that the VTL between Singapore and Johor will commence on 29 November. (See below)

Gan Kim Yong said that both countries have been working closely to finalise the operational details so that the border can be re-opened safely.

He said that it is possible for the land-VTL to be launched close to the air-VTL on 29 November.

Gan emphasized that details are still being finalised and that hopefully, they can share the plans next week.

Quota

Gan Kim Yong also added that the land VTL will likely be started off with a quota, allowing a limited number of people across the causeway.

He said that the priority is to reunite families separated across the border.

They will then think about expanding the scope to allow more people to travel in a safe way.
