Covid-19 and Policy Updates in ASEAN [21 October - 28 October]
As Malaysia continues to battle a third wave of Covid-19 infections, the partial lockdown in Sabah, Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya has been extended to 9 November. The Philippines will allow foreign nationals with investor visas to enter the country beginning 1 November, subject to undergoing a 14-day quarantine in a pre-booked accredited facility. Singapore and Germany agreed to establish a reciprocal green lane that will enable essential travel for business and official purposes; the operational details of the green lane will be announced later. The Indonesian government said that it will delay plans to start administering coronavirus vaccines in early November to ensure the safety of the drugs.
