Malaysia Travel Advice - Added 2nd December 2013 - Updated 28th October 2015 - Current 21st January 2020

Some governments are advising against all but essential travel to parts of Malaysia.

This includes all islands off the coast of eastern Sabah from Kudat to Tawau, including (but not limited to) Lankayan, Mabul, Pom Pom, Kapalai, Litigan, Sipadan and Mataking.

There are regular political demonstrations in central Kuala Lumpur. Popular gathering points are Masjid Jamek, Dataran Merdeka (Independence Square) and KLCC. Rallies may be called at short notice. Monitor local media, be vigilant and avoid large political gatherings.
