MALAYSIA RELAXES ENTRY BAN ON PINOY EXPATS AND PROFESSIONALS
The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said Malaysia will now allow professional and visit pass holders from the Philippines to enter the country as long as they get travel approval from Malaysian immigration authorities.
The entry ban was imposed by Malaysia on 23 countries with high number of COVID-19 cases, including the Philippines, on Sept. 7.
Entry ban has been relaxed provided they have approval from the Malaysian Immigration Department and a support letter from the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA), the DFA said in a statement.
The Philippines has the highest number of COVID-19 cases in Southeast Asia with 286,743 and 4,984 deaths.
