Following that, Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin, stated that all those who intend to go to Langkawi (by land), would need travel papers if and when met with roadblocks. 


Taking to Twitter today, he further announced that all tourists would also need to do a Covid-19 swab test, 48 hours prior to travelling. This step is to ensure that the spread of Covid-19 and it's effects are curbed best as possible. 

Travelers are to take a Covid-19 detection test (RT-PCR or RTK-Antigent) at any health facility or private laboratory 48 hours before their departure. The test results must then be brought along with them. 

If not, one may also opt to purchase and bring a saliva test kit to screening areas in airports or ferry terminals, and be tested there.
