Malaysia lifts international travel restrictions just in time for Radio conferences next month

Malaysia last week lifted all covid restrictions on international travellers entering the country, making it easier for visitors to come to Kuala Lumpur for the ABU’s Radio Asia conference and the RadioDays Asia conference in the same week.

From 1st August 2022, all travellers are allowed to enter Malaysia regardless of their COVID-19 vaccination status and do not require a pre-departure or on-arrival COVID-19 test, according to a health ministry announcement.

A statement on the health ministry website says:

“There are no quarantine orders related to COVID-19 enforced by the Malaysian Government upon arrival.

“Travellers can download and activate the MySejahtera application before or after arrival to Malaysia to indicate their COVID-19 risk status while staying in Malaysia. The COVID-19 risk status in MySejahtera may be checked upon entering premises.

“Travellers who develop COVID-19 symptoms while in Malaysia should get tested and if found to be positive, are subject to the current protocol for positive COVID-19 cases as below… Please continue to practice COVID-19 preventive measures while in Malaysia.”

The ABU’s Radio Asia conference takes place on Sunday 4th September (training day) and Monday 5th September, followed by RadioDays Asia on Tuesday 6th and Wednesday 7th September. The two conferences have worked together this year to offer a Super Radio Event Week to help radio and podcast companies across the region regroup and rethink after the effects of covid on their businesses in the past two years.

radioinfo readers can receive a substantial discount for the RadioDays conference by using the code RINFKL.

ABU Members receive free entry to the Radio Asia conference, and non-members can attend for a small fee. Sponsors and exhibitors are free. Discounts are also available to ABU Members who want to stay on to attend the RadioDays conference.
