Sarawak and Sabah State Government Enhance Measures to curb COVID-19 outbreak




The entry restrictions to and from Sarawak will be extended until 9 June 2020.


Effective 19 May 2020, all Malaysians passengers are required to apply for a permit from the Royal Malaysia Police before being allowed to enter the state. This step is to be done prior to applying for entry approval from the Sarawak Disaster Management Committee via https://sarawakdisastermc.com/ for accompanying spouse and children who are non-Sarawakians.


Sarawakians returning from overseas do not need permit from the Royal Malaysia Police but will undergo mandatory 14-day quarantine.


Sarawakians returning from Peninsular Malaysia/Sabah/Labuan to Kuching, Sibu, Bintulu and Miri will be tested before being allowed to return to their homes.  For those residing in other parts of Sarawak, they will be put up in hotels until their test results return negative before they are allowed to go home.    


China nationals tested negative of COVID-19 are allowed to enter Sarawak, subject to 14 days quarantine.


All passengers transiting through Sarawak with onward connection to Labuan, Sabah, or Peninsular Malaysia are not required to apply for entry as long as they stay within the terminal.





Effective 13 May 2020, all passengers arriving at Kota Kinabalu International Airport from Peninsular Malaysia, Sarawak and Labuan will have to undergo quarantine at designated centres. Passengers will also be subjected to COVID-19 swab test. Meanwhile, the 14-days quarantine order at government designated Quarantine Centres in Sabah for Sabahans returning from overseas remains unchanged.


The entry restrictions imposed by the Sabah State Government will now be extended until 9 June 2020, in line with the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO).


Non-Sabahans including Malaysians residing in Peninsular Malaysia, Sarawakians and other nationalities are not allowed to enter Sabah.  


Non- Sabahans including spouse and their children who hold Sabah Permanent Resident pass, dependant pass, working permit, student pass and long term social pass holders or any exemption order as issued by Sabah Immigration are allowed to enter Sabah. Non-Sabahan married couples are also required to present proof of marriage certificate.


Essential Services workers or civil servants under the State or Federal Government are required to provide “Surat Kelulusan Khas” and/or work pass issued by State Government of Sabah and a letter from their respective employers or HOD for every entry specific to the job task.
