YES - If you started your journey/transited from a country NOT on the Travel Corridor List
NO - If you flew from a country INCLUDED in the Travel Corridor List. You are exempt from self-isolation.
Malaysia is on the Travel Corrridor List so there is no need to self-isolate if you take a direct flight. If you take a non-direct flight through a country not on the list, you will have to self-isolate.
Check the UK Government's updates of the Travel Corridor List before you fly.

TRAVELLING TO IRELAND?
- It is mandatory to complete the online COVID-19 Passenger Locator Form. This form is different to the UK passenger locator form.
- Paper versions of the form are also available at points of entry into Ireland.
After completing your 14-day restricted movement period, there are a range of activities you can do which are curtailed by the Irish government. These restrictions are subject to change from 18th December onwards.
Ireland's government requests you to "restrict movement" for 14 days upon arrival from a foreign country. This applies to all travellers entering the State, including Irish citizens coming home and people with no symptoms.
Restricting your movements means avoiding contact with other people and social situations as much as possible.
- Do not go to work unless you work on your own and can completely avoid other people.
- Do not go to school or colleges.
- Do not use public transport.
- Do not have visitors at your home.
- Do not visit others, even if you usually care for them.
- Do not go to the shops or pharmacy unless it's absolutely necessary - if possible, order groceries online or have family or friends to drop them off.
- Do not go to gatherings e.g. weddings or funerals.
- Do not meet face-to-face with older people, anyone with a long-term medical condition or pregnant women.
