Good news to those who are planning to travel! Today, the Ambassador and Head of the European Union (EU) Delegation to Malaysia, Michalis Rokas, tweeted that the European Commission (EC) has decided to recognize the MySejahtera certificate.
"The Covid-19 vaccination and test certificates issued by Malaysia are in accordance with the Union’s Vaccine Management System and are considered as equivalent to those issued in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2021/953," in a statement on the EU website. With the change, Malaysians who have already completed their vaccinations can now travel to any EU member state.
Some great news: The EU has accepted Malaysia @officialmosti request for establishing the equivalence between EU’s Digital Covid Certificate and Malaysia’s MySejahtera. A booster for business and tourism! @KKMPutrajaya @Khairykj @MalaysiaMFA https://t.co/WFwa7wjSVQ pic.twitter.com/kj78PxZ0pZ— Michalis Rokas (@MichalisRokasEU) April 4, 2022
Starting today, travellers only need to show their vaccination status in MySejahtera as proof that they are fully vaccinated to enter the countries. The announcement is also in line with the Malaysian government's decision to open the borders for tourists from abroad starting 1 April. Rokas hopes that these decisions will increase business and tourism activities between the EU and Malaysia.
