Kuala Lumpur/Singapore: Malaysia and Singapore have started contemplating on a timeline to open up their borders for land and air travel after their tourism sector suffered on the account of covid19 for two years.

Malaysian Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin informed on Twitter that he alongside Singapore's Health Minister Omg Ye Kung were working on reviving their pandemic-hit tourism economies.

Both ministers have agreed to focus on resuming land and air travel for entirely inoculated travellers on a tight quota structure.

Singapore has started allowing visitors from 32 nations and provinces and they will be exempted from quarantine under a vaccinated travel lane scheme, News18 reported.

On the other hand, Malaysia has decided to open its border on April 1.
