Are there currently restrictions on travel to Kuching related to COVID-19?

Yes, there are currently restrictions on flights to Kuching along with the rest of Malaysia. Before you book or search for flights, consider the following restrictions: Entry restrictions

Malaysia has restricted entry to all travelers through at least December 31, except for citizens, permanent residents with a MyPR card, diplomats, embassy employees, and spouses or children of Malaysian nationals, who must have a sticker label visa in the passport specifically indicating this status. Travelers with a Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) permit and a printed entry permit from the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture and students with a student pass for a Malaysian institution may also enter the country. On July 11, Malaysian Immigration issued updated guidelines for expatriate, skilled worker, and knowledge worker pass holders and their dependents to request permission to return to Malaysia. These guidelines also include instructions for pass holders currently in Malaysia who wish to depart and then return to Malaysia. Check the Malaysian Immigration website for more information.

Entry requirements

From August 17, all foreign residents who are returning to the country will be required to complete an application on the MYEntry online platform. Airline crew must present a "Health Declaration Form" upon arrival, are subject to quarantine until their next flight, and must install the 'MySejahtera' app.

Quarantine requirements

All arriving travelers will be tested on arrival, and are subject to a 14-day quarantine requirement in a government facility. All costs for the quarantine are borne by the traveler. Travelers will be required to download the MySejahtera application and will be issued a wristband for identification and monitoring by the authorities during their quarantine period. Foreigners with valid visas or work permits who entered Malaysia BEFORE the MCO began on March 16 may enter Sarawak without quarantine, but must request advance permission from the Sarawak State Disaster Management Committee (SDMC). Foreigners with valid visas or work permits who entered Malaysia during the MCO will be subject to a mandatory 14-day quarantine in a government facility at their own expense, and must first request advance permission from SDMC. As of July 28, all foreigners who enter Sarawak from overseas will be required to undergo COVID-19 testing on the second and tenth day. They will be responsible for covering the costs of their quarantine and testing. More information is available here.

The territory of the Asian island of Borneo is divided amongst three countries. Located in the north of the island, Kuching is officially part of Malaysia and is undoubtedly Borneo’s most sophisticated city. A vibrant mix of cultures and cuisines, the city is ideal for wandering around on foot, with a fascinating blend of Colonial-style buildings, Chinese temples and stylish hotels just waiting to be explored.

Kuching is famous for its superb selection of museums. The Sarawak Museum has been in existence since 1891 and is home to a wonderful collection of cultural artifacts which help to tell the story of the island of Borneo and its people. Located on the city’s waterfront, the Chinese History Museum is another attraction which draws a large number of visitors, providing an insight into the differing cultures of the nine Chinese communities. Cat lovers will adore both the Cat Museum and the various cat statues which are spread throughout the city. As the word ‘kuching’ means ‘cat’ in Malay, felines are very popular here.

Away from downtown, there is a wealth of natural beauty and exotic wildlife to be encountered. Semenggok Wildlife Rehabilitation Center carries out essential work in rehabilitating injured and orphaned orangutans. Visitors to the center have the rare opportunity of watching these magnificent creatures at play in their natural habitat and, if they so wish, can donate to their future welfare.
