The Southeast Asian nation has shut its borders since March 2020 and froze the entry of foreign workers to try to contain novel coronavirus outbreaks.
The recommendation comes as neighbours waive quarantine requirements to attract vaccinated tourists, including Thailand, the Philippines and Singapore, says a news report by Reuters. Thailand on Monday said it was eyeing travel bubbles with Malaysia and China.
Riaz Munshi, President, OTOAI said, “This is an encouraging news for the travel and tourism fraternity. The worst of Covid-19 seems to be over with countries reopening their borders for international travellers. It is time that Covid-19 protocols and restrictions are eased for fully vaccinated travellers. We urge and request all countries to open their borders for international travels and tourism.”
