Over the course of the past two years living with COVID-19, among some of the most challenging circumstances some families have had to endure is living apart from one another. This is especially true in the case of those with family members who have been living across the Causeway and have been separated by border restrictions due to the ongoing pandemic.

However, with the recent Vaccinated Travel Lane that was established between Singapore and Malaysia, families that have been facing this challenge were finally granted with the opportunity to be reunited at long last. And among them includes Mr Cheah Wen Jie’s wife, who had spent over 578 days, or a little over a year and a-half, in Singapore due to border travel restrictions.

Unable to return since 10th June 2020, Cheah explains that his wife finally managed to secure a passage back into Malaysia from Singapore through the VTL agreement between both countries, which allowed for fully-vaccinated individuals from both nations to travel between border checkpoints. Thrilled that they would finally be reunited once again, he even surprised her with a bouquet of flowers upon picking her up.
