Hundreds of passengers were left cooling their heels at Kuala Lumpur Airport earlier this week after changes to Malaysia’s entry and quarantine rules. New rules have come into force barring entry to Malaysia if you come from a country with more than 150,000 COVID-19 cases. That’s caused delays, confusion, and stress for many passengers touching down at Kuala Lumpur.
Last week, Malaysia said it was banning citizens from countries with high numbers of COVID-19 cases. On that list were the United States, Britain, Brazil, France, Spain, Indonesia, India, Italy, Saudi Arabia, Russia, The Philippines, and Bangladesh. All up, 23 countries are on the list. The rule was to come into force on Monday, September 7.
