For arrivals who have yet to complete their vaccination, they will be required to take an RT-PCR upon arrival and serve a 5-day quarantine period. Furthermore, non or partially vaccinated arrivals may be subjected to mandatory vaccination at the quarantine facility/accommodation. This applies to KITAS/KITAP holders and diplomats. Children aged 6 – 17 years of age, may also be required to complete their vaccination.
Those who are required to serve quarantine will be subjected to a repeat PCR test on day 4 of quarantine.
