KUALA LUMPUR, 5 April 2022: The European Union (EU) has accepted Malaysia’s request to recognise MySejahtera’s certification as being equal to EU’s Digital Covid Certificate, effective yesterday, Malay Mail reported.

In a Twitter post yesterday, EU’s ambassador to Malaysia, Michalis Rokas shared the matter and described it as a “booster for business and tourism”.

“Malaysia shall be connected to the EU Digital Covid Certificate trust framework established by Regulation (EU) 2021/953.

“This decision shall enter into force on April 4, 2022,” stated in a graphic attached by Rokas, attributed to the Delegation of the European Union to Malaysia.

The EU Monitor cites Regulation (EU) 2021/953 as “a framework for the issuance, verification and acceptance of interoperable Covid-19 vaccination, test and recovery certificates (EU Digital Covid Certificate) to facilitate free movement during the Covid-19 pandemic.”

Meanwhile, Health Minister, Khairy Jamaluddin replied to Rokas’ post in Twitter by saying, “Reconnecting Malaysia and the EU”.

The recognition of MySejahtera’s vaccination certificates follows after Malaysia reopened its national borders on 1 April as it transitions to the endemic phase of COVID-19.***
