    State of emergency in Malaysia

    Good news? I don't think so: EMCO in 34 mukim in Selangor, 14 localities in KL, from July 3 We're hitting close to 7k new daily cases for the last few days despite the Phase 1 restrictions so now the government added an EMCO on top to finally do something about all the factories that have been...

    Foreigners not allowed in Sorong

    Malaysia is irrelevant either way. The government no longer calls it Movement Control Order (MCO)/lockdown but Phase 1 which was supposed to end on June 28. However, since "we" failed to meet three target numbers the start of Phase 2 is delayed indefinitely until we magically reach those target...

    State of emergency in Malaysia

    We're also not meeting the < 4000 daily cases requirement yet. In fact, we haven't even recorded one day below 4k during this renewed MCO. Today's new cases number is 5244 so obviously phase 1 will be extended into July, delaying the onset of the other three phases.

    Cancelled/postponed trips due to COVID - please share your outcomes

    Our Tubbataha liveaboard from May 2020 which was postponed to 2021 has now been rescheduled for 2023. Tried 2022 at first but all spots were already taken by others rescheduling. Somehow I think 2023 is a safer bet.

    State of emergency in Malaysia

    Sorry, don't really have any dive operator tips. But Scuba Junkie has a good reputation and I've stayed at their Mabul location some years ago which was all good. Concerning vaccination: Number registered for COVID-19 vaccination still low - PM Muhyiddin Only 7.6 million of the targeted 26.7...

    State of emergency in Malaysia

    Malaysia is not open for international tourists at the moment. Are you moving for work? If so then check with the employer and the embassy for paperwork and what the process currently is. Tawau is under MCO until April 16: MCO in Tawau from tomorrow until April 16 - Ismail Sabri So no Mabul or...

    Indonesia closed for foreigners 01 - 14 January 2021

    So that still would not make it possible to travel to Indonesia or anywhere else in 2021. Even if the government actually implements a plan to allow people to travel (inter)nationally after they get both vaccination rounds, it's just going too slow for potential tourists from Malaysia.

    Very unfortunate for him. I wonder whether he has been able to get vaccinated.
