On Sunday (July 25), Malaysia recorded 17,045 new Covid-19 cases, setting a new high for the third consecutive day as the country surpassed one million cumulative cases since the pandemic began.
The number of new Covid-19 cases and hospital admissions is expected to decline next month (August) by which time 40% of the country’s adult population will be fully vaccinated, immunization programme (PICK) coordinating minister Khairy Jamaluddin said today.
With that into account, there might be few sectors and SOP lifted and hopefully tourism will be on the list too since everyone dying to travel, go for a road trip or weekend trip to Port Dickson or Melaka.
Speaking of travel, so far here is top 10 countries that already accepting and opens for tourist.
Mexico's tourist-friendly policies have increased the country's attractiveness as a tourism destination multiple times in recent years. There are no mandatory testing or quarantine procedures for visitors from any nation.
However, upon arrival, you will be subjected to a health examination, and individuals presenting COVID-19 signs may be required to test/quarantine. All travellers must complete an online “Cuestiona” form and present it on arrival.
On June 15, Medinas restarted international flights, allowing in international visitors. The government has divided the world into two lists, A and B, based on epidemiological status.
Travellers from countries on list A will need a vaccination permit or a certificate proving that they are completely vaccinated, or a negative PCR test within 48 hours of boarding.
Travellers from countries on list A will need a vaccination pass or a certificate attesting that the person is fully vaccinated, or a negative PCR test at boarding not exceeding 48 hours.
Travellers from countries on the B list must submit a negative PCR test within 48 hours of embarkation, a written and signed declaration of honour for a 10-day confinement, and a voucher verifying payment of a 10-day confinement in one of the Moroccan authorities' selected hotels.

The French Colony, blessed with lush rainforests and pristine beaches, permits all international travel. Passengers will need a negative result from an RT-PCR test to take within 5 days prior to departure.
Quarantine is required only if you have a high temperature on arrival and test positive. It is mandatory to complete the Air Travel Declaration Form online and present a copy before departure.
For the most part, tourism has resumed across the country, but some places might have caps on capacity.
Maldives, another well-known Indian Ocean archipelago famed for lovely, laid-back luxury holidays, has ambitious plans to vaccinate visitors after its native population is immunized.
As of now, the dispersed country is accepting visitors without requiring individuals who have been immunized to quarantine (provided they are travelling to an island where 60 percent of the population is fully vaccinated).
All unvaccinated travellers must still have a negative PCR certificate produced no more than 96 hours before departure. Passengers must fill out a "Traveller Health Declaration" 24 hours before their flight.
The government is primarily relying on the fact that guests usually prefer to lounge and relax in their private over-water huts and villas. Nonetheless, most of the islands can be visited.
