COVID-19 entry requirement: All overseas visitors to Malaysia must show a completed Malaysia Health Declaration Form.

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, many countries have added a mandatory travel health form for international visitors.

Malaysia has introduced its own document — the Malaysia Health Declaration Form. The purpose of the policy is to strengthen border measures and help protect public health during the pandemic.

The travel health form is an additional step for overseas passengers. All standard entry requirements, such as visas, still need to be followed.

This page explains what the Malaysia Health Declaration Form is, and how to apply online before your trip.

Who Needs to Complete the Malaysia Health Declaration Form?

The Travel Health Certificate is a mandatory document for anyone traveling to Malaysia from overseas, including citizens and residents of Malaysia.

If you wish to enter Malaysia for any reason, by air, land, or sea, you must show a completed Malaysia Health Declaration Form.

There are no exceptions to this policy, and any passenger without a completed form will be refused entry.

Do children need to complete a travel health form?

Children must also have a completed health declaration form. There is no option to add minors to an existing application, so a separate form needs to be submitted.

Accompanying adults can complete the form on behalf of any travelers who are too young to do so themselves.

What is the Malaysia Health Declaration Form?

The Health Declaration Form is now part of Malaysia’s entry policy. It acts as a Travel Health Certificate that registers the health status of each passenger.

You can apply for the Health Declaration Form online. The completed document must then be shown to authorities during your journey.

The form is mandatory for all international visitors. If you do not follow this travel requirement, you cannot enter Malaysia for any reason.

How does the travel health form work?

The health certificate works in different ways to support the Malaysian government in controlling the spread of coronavirus:

Track and trace positive cases

You must provide your contact details on the application for the Malaysia Health Declaration Form. This makes it easy for Malaysian health authorities to contact you if you are at risk of infection. 

If you have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, such as another passenger, the government can inform you as quickly as possible.

Health screen passengers

The travel health form asks applicants to state whether they have recently had any coronavirus related symptoms, or been in contact with someone who has.

Health screening passengers means that authorities can take extra measures to interrupt possible chains of transmission, such as additional health screening on arrival.

Manage high-risk countries

Malaysia has additional entry requirements for passengers who have recently been in high-risk countries.

On the Malaysia Health Declaration Form you must provide your travel history for the last 14 days. This informs health authorities of which regulations each individual must follow, so they can monitor them during their stay.

Malaysia Health Declaration Form Requirements

Before you can start the application process for the Travel Health Certificate, you need to have the following prepared:

  • Contact details
  • Travel information
  • Accommodation in Malaysia

All passengers must also follow additional safety measures related to COVID-19.

Currently, international travelers must have a negative PCR test, taken no more than 48 hours before departure for Malaysia.

Entry restrictions for coronavirus are regularly updated, so visitors must check the most recent information before traveling.

It is important to remember that these measures are in addition to the standard entry requirements set by the Malaysian government.

The Malaysia Health Declaration Form does not replace other travel documents. You must still follow all other mandatory steps to travel to Malaysia.

Malaysia Health Declaration Form Application

The Health Declaration Form for Malaysia can be completed in 2 ways.

You can choose the method which is most suitable for you.

Download the government app

The Malaysian government have introduced an app specifically for travelers during the COVID-19 pandemic — MySejahtera Traveller.

You can download the app onto a mobile device, then complete the Health Declaration Form from there. You will be asked to create an account first.

Manually complete the form

If you cannot download the app, or you prefer not to, there is also an application form which you can fill in manually.

You can either print out a copy and complete it by hand, or type in your information digitally.

Completing the Health Declaration Form

The Travel Certificate only takes a few minutes to complete. You just need to fill in the blank fields with some basic information.

You need to provide your contact details, such as:

  • Name
  • Age
  • Passport number
  • Nationality
  • Address in Malaysia
  • Phone number

The form asks you for your travel information, covering:

  • Mode of transport
  • Flight number
  • Seat number

There are then some COVID-19 specific questions, including:

  • Any recent symptoms
  • Close contact with a positive case
  • Recent travel history

When you have the completed form, you must show it to airline staff and immigration officials during your trip to Malaysia.
