Following the recent announcement of Malaysia transitioning into the endemic stage by Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri Bin Yaakob and the reopening of the borders, the One Stop Centre (OSC) which was established by the Malaysian Government on 2 October 2020 to facilitate the movement of business travellers will be phased out effective 1 April 2022.
MIDA will be drawing the curtains on the OSC’s platform for Short Term Business Travellers entering Malaysia and investors are no longer required to apply for Entry Permission and Quarantine Mandatory Exemption to the OSC platform through the Safe Travel portal.
The Malaysian Investment Development Authority manages the Centres to ensure the legitimacy and health status of travellers entering Malaysia. The Business Travellers Centre (BTC) at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) was also established as a key component of the OSC to facilitate Business Travellers movement – from entry to exit point.
Throughout its operations, the OSC and BTC facilitated a total of 3,223 companies approved for Short-Term Business Travellers, with an estimated total investment value of RM171.82 billion.”
