Home Quarantine
Procedure

Fully vaccinated Malaysians and foreigners who have a residence in Malaysia, including permanent residents, and MM2H visa holders returning from overseas may serve their quarantine at home with preapproval from the Ministry of Health (MOH), subject to strict requirements including mandatory electronic monitoring.  Other travelers who can demonstrate that they have a home residence in Malaysia that is suitable for quarantine may also be permitted to quarantine at home, subject to MOH preapproval. 

1. Travelers must make a formal application for home quarantine by sending an email to the MOH Home Surveillance Order (HSO) team at hso@moh.gov.my at least 7-10 days prior to travel to request home quarantine, including the following documents:   

- Travel itinerary/tickets  
- Passport  
- Malaysian visa/pass  
- Vaccine card  
- Residential address in Malaysia (where the traveler will quarantine)  
- PCR test results (send as a follow up email within three days of scheduled travel)  
- Home quarantine application form

2. Travelers must print the home quarantine preapproval notice and present it upon arrival to Malaysia.  We note that being vaccinated does NOT guarantee home quarantine will be approved.  The  Embassy cannot assist with applications for home quarantine.  Permission for home quarantine is at the decision and discretion of the Malaysian Ministry of Health.
