KUALA LUMPUR: The government plans to increase the daily quota for Malaysian and Singapore citizens travelling through the Vaccinated Travel Lane land (VTL-Land) facility to 2,100 people each way, depending on the Covid-19 situation.
International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Azmin Ali said that while under the VTL, no quarantine was required due to the high vaccination rate in both countries, the government was constantly monitoring the health situation.
“That is why we are opening the border carefully and not abruptly and the daily quota remains at 1,440 travellers each way.
“On Dec 20, if the situation permits, we will increase the quota to 2,100 travellers per day,” he said during the question-and-answer session at the Dewan Negara here yesterday. — Bernama
