Malaysian workers who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 in Singapore may soon be able to return home, especially for Aidilfitri celebrations, as a study to allow this is underway.
Speaking to reporters on Sunday (25 April), and cited by Bernama,Johor's Investment, Entrepreneur Development, Cooperative and Human Resource Committee Chairman Datuk Mohd Izhar Ahmad said this "relaxation" would include providing special green lane passes to these individuals.
He noted compulsory vaccination was among the conditions agreed upon by Malaysia and Singapore in discussions to open up the border, and therefore, Johor will "adhere to it."
"We were told that all our people should be vaccinated. So Johor is taking the proactive step to expedite vaccination as soon as possible to enable the border checkpoint opening agreement with Singapore to be met."
He further added that Malaysia's Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong are expected to discuss this early next month, Bernama shared.
