If you’re planning an international trip, include a COVID-19 test in your schedule, especially if you’re inbound. Some places are a breeze to find one, while others are more difficult. If you’re not in a major city or a well-known tourist site, you may have a harder time finding a test.
As Malaysia’s tourism industry recovers from COVID-19 and international borders have reopened, there’s a projected influx of 2 million visitors. To make things easier, the Malaysian Association of Hotels (MAH) is collaborating with Malaysia’s leading digital health service provider, DOC2US, to provide travellers and guests at member hotels of MAH with a one-stop solution for COVID-19 testing requirements through DOC2US’ virtual RTK Intelligent System (RTKis).
DOC2US introduced its AI-powered RTKis, a virtual RTK-Ag screening solution certified by licensed doctors, in July last year.
MAH president, Datuk N Subramaniam said the RTKis tests are supervised by professional healthcare providers, and the results are uploaded to the Public Health Laboratory Information System (SIMKA) integrated with MySejahtera where travellers are also able to access the free Virtual Health Advisory services provided by DOC2US.
Currently, more than 20 MAH member hotels hadve signed up for the service, which they are in the process of adopting. When booking a hotel room at MAH participating member hotels, travellers can now opt to add RTKis, which will be given to them upon check-in.
As part of the extra services given by MAH member hotels, inbound travellers who are required to complete RTK-Ag testing for COVID-19 can do so quickly and comfortably from their hotel rooms within 24 hours of arrival. You may rest assured knowing it’s secure and trustworthy.
Travellers entering Malaysia are required to take a PCR COVID-19 test two days before departure and upload the test result in MySejahtera.
Upon arrival in Malaysia, individuals must then undergo a professional RTK-Antigen test within 24 hours. For more information on DOC2US RTKis, click here.
