The Prime Minister’s Office announced via a press release that the land Vaccinated Travel Lane between Singapore and Malaysia through the Causeway will officially be launched on 29 November.
Phase One of the land VTL will be reserved for citizens/PRs/Long Term Pass holders who are traveling to their own country (ie. Malaysian working in Singapore going to Johor).
Designated buses will ferry them across the Causeway.
The PMO emphasized that the who are working in either country will be prioritized to let them see their families.
The land VTL will eventually be expanded to allow more travelers to cross the Causeway.
Singapore and Malaysia are also working towards the resumption of travel via the Tuas Second Link.
Minister of Trade and Industry Gan Kim Yong appealed for the understanding of workers who might not be able to get their hands on a bus ticket to return home, because of the limited quota of the first phase.
Must be fully vaccinated
Those who are traveling have to test negative in a pre-departure ART or PCR test within 2 days prior to their departure.
They must also be fully vaccinated and show proof of vaccination.
