A guide to entry into Malaysia via VTL-Land & VTL-Air

The announcement of the expansion of the VTL (visit, travel, live) scheme for Singaporeans is a big deal. With this, it will be easier for Singaporeans to visit Johor Bahru, and even live there! Singaporeans can now head off to the shopping and foodie paradise of Johor Bahru without having to worry about travel restrictions so long as they have a valid VTL voucher. The scheme has been expanded, effective 20th December 2021, and is now the main transportation option for those looking to cross the causeway.

As you’ve already heard, Malaysia and Singapore VTL travel have two modes of transportation that you can choose from which are through land and air. Despite that, which one is more convenient and cost efficient remains a question for many of us.

That being said, let’s dive in and break down the process and cost between the two.

Among the SOPs are:

  • Only for fully vaccinated travelers.
  • No quarantine needed.
  • Undergo a Covid-19 test 48 hours before departure: 
    a. RT-PCR test for VTL-Air travelers.
    b. RTK-Ag (professional) or RT-PCR test for VTL-Land travelers.
  • Undergo Covid-19 test on arrival:
    a. RT-PCR test in KLIA/ KLIA 2 for VTL-Air travelers.
    b. RTK-Ag (professional) test at Larkin Sentral Bus Terminal in Johor Bahru for VTL-Land travelers.
  • Additional Tests Required:
    a. RTK-Ag (professional) test on Day-3 and Day-5.
    b. RT-Ag self test on Day-2, Day-4 and Day-6 (results to be reported on the MySejahtera application)
  • The additional test also applies to Malaysian VTL travelers returning from Singapore.

Choose your mode of travel

VTL Land

For VTL land between Singapore and Malaysia, there’s only 2 available buses for you to choose from either Causeway Link or Transtar Travel. Each departure ticket from Singapore is priced at S$15 (+-RM47) for adults and S$8 (+- RM25) for children. It’s cheaper when you’re going to Singapore with each ticket price at RM20 (+-S$7) for adults and RM10 (+-S$3) for children.

Before the pandemic it was estimated more than 300,000 people cross the Malaysia–Singapore border everyday which makes it one of the busiest land border crossings in the world. Although the number was reduced to a mere 3000 people, and even lower to 1500 people recently, there are many who need to cross the border everyday.

This in turn makes the VTL bus ticket very popular and highly sought after by everyone. We advised you to book early if you choose to cross using the VTL land option.

VTL Air

For air travel, you can choose between six airlines that provide VTL Flights : Singapore Airlines, Scoot, AirAsia, Jetstar, Malaysia Airlines, and Malindo Air. Be sure to double check every detail that your flight you are booking is the designated VTL flight.

The ticket price (including return ticket) varies depending on how long your travel time and when your departure date. But the estimated cost is between S$747 – S$980 per adult person. So, it’s clear to say that VTL land by bus is better if you’re only looking to cross the border into Johor Bahru. But, if you are planning to spend your vacation at a place much farther away, go ahead and book the VTL flight.

Get Travel Insurance That Include COVID-19 Coverage

Both the Singapore and Malaysia governments agreed to make it compulsory for short term visitors to have an insurance policy which covers at least RM100,000 (S$32,200 to enter Malaysia and S$30,000 to enter Singapore) in the event they need treatment or quarantined due to COVID-19.

Download MySejahtera App for Use in Malaysia


MySejahtera has become as important as wearing a mask when you leave your house. It’s compulsory to use this app to enter most restaurants, malls, and public amenities that are available in Malaysia. 

You can find and install the app thru App Store, Play Store and even HUAWEI Store.

IMPORTANT TIPS: Do not wait till the last minute to verify your vaccination status on the app. You’ll have to upload your vaccination cert and details, and it will take up to five working days for it to be processed. The process will look like this: 

  1. Head over to your profile on the app
  2. Tap on “MySejahtera Helpdesk” (option N)
  3. Select “I have received my vaccination overseas and would like to obtain my digital certificate” 
  4. Follow the instructions from there to fill in the necessary details and upload your vaccination cert

Travelers also have to register at Malaysia’s MySafeTravel portal, at least seven days before your flight. So, you need to prepare everything early (a week before) from your departure date to avoid any issues at the border checkpoint.

Arrival in Johor Bahru

Once you land in Johor Bahru, the first thing you’ll have to do is take an On-Arrival Test at Larkin Bus Terminal (VTL by land) or Senai International Airport if you choose the VTL flight. The test costs RM90 (~S$29.30) but includes 2 travel vouchers valid on bus rides within the state. Tourists can book the RTK-Ag Tests online, or they can do it at a nearby hospital or clinic.


Book professional COVID-19 test with Get Test Fast by Maju Healthcare!

WAHDAH partners up with Get Test Fast by Maju Healthcare – providing certified and convenient COVID-19 screening services at Drive-Thru Centres (DTC) with on-site labs capable of immediate sample analysis. Encounter a seamless experience throughout your travels in Malaysia with us!

Going back to Singapore

When coming back to Singapore after an extended stay in Malaysia, passengers are required to take a PCR or ART test within two days of departure at one of the approved testing centers by MOH Malaysia, and submit an SG Arrival Card within 72 hours before coming back to Singapore. Upon arrival, travelers will also have to take daily Covid-19 ART tests for a week. The ones on days three and seven will be done at a Combined or Quick Test Centre, while the other tests can be self-administered.

Cost breakdown for both VTL mode of transport

So, there are 7 things to consider in your travel budget when using VTL Singapore to Malaysia. (please refer to the image below)

Note: Covid-19 testing requirements may vary depending on Singapore and Malaysia’s latest VTL measures. Find out more on ICA (Singapore) and MITI (Malaysia).

Road trip in Malaysia with WAHDAH!

The concept of “slow traveling” is an approach to travel that emphasizes connection: to local people, cultures, food and music. It relies on the idea that a trip is meant to educate and have an emotional impact, in the present moment and for the future, while remaining sustainable for local communities and the environment.

George, a husband and father with 3 kids, spent his wonderful time on a long-term journey to explore South East Asia by emphasizing the concept of slow traveling.

From Bangkok, Phuket, Saigon, Singapore and Malaysia they share the story of their experience on Kensho Quest YouTube channel. We at WAHDAH.my are inspired and feel honored to be a part of their journey.

It is hoped that Malaysia (and WAHDAH specifically) will leave a good impression and a wonderful experience for them to reminisce when talking about Malaysia.

7 Tips To Clean Your Car And Stay Virus Free

Covid epidemics and some more serious infectious diseases, the threat of disease is always around us all the time. If you think going out with your own car provides safety measures, know that it does not eliminate the risk of infection. In fact, you may get germs on your hands and then touch the door handles, steering wheel, radio dial, etc. Germs will spread to those surfaces where they may infect others or even re -infect you after you wash. or clean your hands.

It is important to keep your car clean and virus -free to keep yourself and your family healthy. Follow these tips to keep your car clean!

Use the right cleaning tools

The right products can help kill viruses that live on surfaces such as plastic, leather, rubber and aluminum. Use a good quality cleaner for your car. You can use household cleaners and disinfectants but make sure they are safe to use for certain surfaces in your car.
Skin, for example, can be damaged by certain products. Some disinfectants make the surface of the skin dry. You can use mild soap and water then apply skin conditioner. This not only keeps the interior of your car germ -free. It is also a great way to reduce their spread.

Vacuum frequently

Dust particles accumulate in your vehicle. And because some germs stay longer, make sure you empty your car regularly. When you do, make sure the mats, rugs, and pedals are thoroughly cleaned. Car seats, although can be vacuumed as well, should be disinfected and thoroughly cleaned. Do not skip this step. Make sure it is done once or twice a week to reduce the risk of spreading the virus and infection.

Focus on high contact surfaces

Some surfaces in your car are touched more often than others. These are places that your hands and fingers touch all the time like the steering wheel, screen, buttons, gear shifter, knobs, among others.

Reduce your risk of getting viruses and infections by cleaning these surfaces thoroughly using an internal cleaner.
Don’t forget the area at the top of the dashboard as it is the main place to accommodate germs and microorganisms. The air circulating around the car sweeps the windshield and eventually sticks to the dashboard.

Clean your car carpet

Having a clean carpet is not only important in helping you reduce the chances of getting sick. It also makes your trip more comfortable. Vacuum your carpet or if you can’t get a car vacuum, another good method is to use a terry cloth or microfiber cloth in the cleaning. Spray disinfectant on cloth and wipe on your carpet.

Do not skip the gray area

Even if some areas in your car aren’t touched as often as others, it’s still important to clean and disinfect them thoroughly as well. Areas such as headrests, headrests and window glass should not be skipped or ignored. Don’t forget to wipe the door handle from the inside and out as you come in contact with it every time you get out and get back into the car.

Keep sanitizer and disinfectant in your car

To keep yourself and your car protected from viruses, it is best to always use hand sanitizer and wet wipes. Clean your hands every time you get in your car before touching anything. Make sure you have a disinfectant in your car as well, so that cleaning and disinfection can be done right away when necessary.

Disinfect your HVAC unit

The air distributed by your HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) can carry viruses and infections. Therefore, disinfection of your HVAC unit is a must. Perform a thorough cleaning of the entire system including the filter. It does not necessarily require professional expertise. You can remove the cabin filter from the back of the compartment and spray it with disinfectant.

With or without the global health crisis, it is important to keep cleanliness and sanitation a priority in your home and car. Follow these tips to keep your vehicle virus free and keep yourself protected from infection.

Whether you want to drive for a short trip or a long trip, make sure before you drive you get enough rest and never force yourself to drive in a drowsy state. Make sure before you drive you to get adequate sleep, especially for those who want to drive on long-distance trips. Driving to distant destinations will actually make us feel more sleepy than short-distance travel.

2-Drink Isotonic or Caffeinated Beverages

Wahdah believes that many people know that one of the reasons we easily feel drowsy is due to the reduced energy and fluid in our body. So the best way is to take Isotonic or caffeinated drinks. This is because isotonic drinks are able to restore energy and fluids and your body. Meanwhile, caffeinated drinks, it can eliminate the feeling of nausea. For those of you who may not drink nescafe or isotonic drinks, you can replace them with hot coffee or tea.

Another way you can do this is by doing a little light exercise. Do this light exercise for 5 or 10 minutes so that the blood in the body can flow regularly. Then you can resume your driving when you have lost the feeling of drowsiness.

5-Listen to Lively Music

Listening to lively music while driving is actually one of the effective ways to get rid of the feeling of tiredness while driving. there are several types of music that can provide a stimulus and make and further enhance mental acuity and alertness while driving.

Apart from the factor of those who like to drive the vehicle in fast and dangerous conditions, the factor of driving in a drowsy state is also actually the biggest contributor. In fact, accidents like this can be avoided if you get enough rest.

Malaysia eyes Middle East’s millennial, Gen Z travelers for tourism revival

MALAYSIA: Malaysia is focusing its promotional efforts on millennial and Generation Z travelers from the Middle East, the tourism minister told Arab News, as the country sets out to revive its pandemic-wrecked hospitality sector. The Muslim-majority nation, which markets itself abroad as an ideal holiday destination, with a multi-ethnic culture, lush rainforests and pristine beaches, suffered a heavy blow when it shut its borders to foreign visitors in 2020 and remained isolated until April this year.

Malaysia is popular among visitors from the Middle East and has been ranked as a top destination in the Global Muslim Travel Index since 2015.

To boost post-pandemic arrivals, its marketing efforts are now focused on visitors from the demographic cohorts known as Gen Z — those born between the late 1990s and 2000s — and millennials — born between the early 1980s and mid-1990s.

Tourism Minister Nancy Shukri told Arab News in a recent interview that millennial and Gen Z tourists are “two of the most influential groups of Muslim travellers that will shape the future trends of the market.”

As she outlined the country’s promotional strategy, the minister said these groups of travellers from the Middle East are “often categorized to be adventurous and more open-minded in their choices of holiday activities, while still observing their religious obligations.”

Shukri explained that the term “adventurous” extends beyond sports-related activities, such as hiking, climbing and diving,” and also refers to “cultural exchanges and interaction with the environment” — from tree planting and birdwatching to participation in local festivals and learning local languages.

To cater to millennial and Gen Z visitors from the Middle East, the country is trying to promote niche tourism products such as ecotourism and adventure travel but also volunteering, and other activities that are in line with sustainable tourism practices — travel experiences that include concern for social and environmental issues, as well as the welfare of host communities.

“It is observed that Muslim travellers, including (from the) Middle East traveller market, now have a more sophisticated need for spiritually fulfilling and transformative travel experiences that could enrich their lives,” Shukri said.

“Activities like volunteering and socialising with the destination’s community at local festivals, for example, can create a valuable memory that elevates their travel experience. This is one example of how tourism can be linked to sustainability.”

Hopes for attracting Middle Eastern visitors are high after the Arabian Travel Market, an annual tourism event organized in Dubai, which was held on May 9-12.

Malaysia’s tourism ministry took part in the event with its Tourism Malaysia and Islamic Tourism Center, as well as local tourism boards, travel agencies, and representatives of resorts and hotels.

“Feedback from ATM 2022 was tremendous and overwhelming,” Shukri said, adding that sales of 34.5 million Malaysian ringgit ($7.8 million) were generated during the four-day event.

“Middle East industry players were intrigued with Malaysia’s Muslim-Friendly Accommodation Recognition, developed by ITC, which helps tourists to easily identify hotels with Muslim-friendly facilities.”

Before the global pandemic, Malaysia received about 400,000 visitors from the Middle East in 2019. Travellers from Saudi Arabia topped the arrivals, accounting for a quarter of the visits.

The number of international visits to the Southeast Asian nation, where tourism had contributed 13 percent of the national economy, dropped significantly during the pandemic, with fewer than 135,000 visitors in 2021, compared with 26.1 million in 2019.

As it seeks to revive its tourism sector, Malaysia has set a 2022 target of 4.5 million visitors and a revenue of $2.5 billion.

So far, according to the tourism ministry’s data, 2.38 million foreigners have visited the country this year, arriving mainly from India, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Saudi Arabia.

More than a million Singaporean tourists visit Malaysia

Selangor : Singapore has become the largest contributor to the influx of foreign tourists into the country.

More than 1 million of its citizens travelled to Malaysia on April 1, when border gates were opened to the tourism sector. The latest figure is expected to surpass 1 million tourists. The surge is a factor in the significant increase in foreign tourist arrivals to the country which is approaching its target of 2 million foreign tourists by 2022.

The minister of tourism, arts and culture Datuk Seri Nancy Shukry said that the increase in foreign tourists was due to the implementation of policies on compliance with Covid-19 standard operating procedures (SOPs) as well as the wider opening of economic sectors such as restaurants and hotels.
