Malaysian Borneo Travel Restrictions & Updates

Travel Ban

Malaysia / Borneo has thus far been spared a serious outbreak with containment and isolation strategies (track & trace) still in effect, avoiding the need for mitigation. Remaining active cases has now dropped, with numbers at only 10 to 0 reported daily in both Sabah and Sarawak.

As much as we are excited and ready to welcome all travellers to Malaysian Borneo, our borders are still closed to foreigners for the time being.

On 5 July 2020, the Sabah state government announced that they aim to reopen its borders to foreign travellers by 1 September 2020. However, this is not yet confirmed and will depend on the developments of the Covid-19 situation in the country.
