In our report last Sunday entitled ‘Malaysia imposes new entry policies’, the Malaysian High Commission in Brunei Darussalam has clarified that the maximum quarantine rate of RM150 is only applicable to the citizens of Malaysia.

For non-citizens, the full payment needs to be borne depending on the rate of the designated quarantine centre. There is no specific maximum rate stipulated for non-foreigners. The categories of non-Malaysians allowed to enter Malaysia as mentioned in the guidelines for the time being until further notification includes permanent residents of Malaysia; spouses or children of Malaysians holding the Malaysian Long Term Social Visa Pass; diplomats; and Approved Malaysia My Second Home Programme participants.
