Denmark is the latest country to be added into Malaysia’s Covid-19 travel restriction list, following a decision by the European country to go into lockdown.
Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Special Functions) Datuk Seri Mohd Redzuan Yusof (pic) said the restriction applies to all foreigners, including those who were in Denmark recently.
“All Denmark nationals and citizens of other countries who have been to Denmark are not allowed to enter Malaysia or be on transit at any of our entry points.
“Malaysians are advised to postpone non-essential travel to Denmark due to the risk of being infected with Covid-19.
“Malaysians returning from Denmark must undergo home quarantine for 14 days,” said Mohd Redzuan at a press conference after chairing a multi-agency working committee meeting on Covid-19 here on Thursday (March 12).
The travel ban is effective March 14.
Prior to this, Malaysia has imposed travel bans on people coming from affected areas in China, Korea, Japan, Iran and Italy.
