The ‘Truly Malaysia Roadshow’ organized by Tourism Malaysia through its overseas offices in Russia, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and Turkey concluded on 20 September. The roadshow began in Moscow, followed by Tashkent, Almaty, and Istanbul.
Led by Mr. Iskandar Mirza Mohd Yusof, Acting Deputy Director General (Planning) of Tourism Malaysia, the Malaysian delegation consists of travel operators, hoteliers, state tourism bodies, and educational tourism industry players. The roadshow provides a platform for both Malaysian sellers and local buyers to participate in business-to-business (B2B) sessions and product presentations to revive, reconnect and create new partnerships in enhancing opportunities to boost tourist arrivals to Malaysia.
Malaysia has relaxed the entry procedures for fully-vaccinated travellers without requirements to undergo quarantine or pre-departure and on-arrival COVID-19 tests. Travel insurance is also not a prerequisite for foreigners entering Malaysia, and inbound travellers no longer need to fill in the Traveler’s Card on the country’s contact tracing app, MySejahtera.
