KUALA LUMPUR – Malaysians who wish to return to the country need to go for Covid-19 screening three days before their departure date.
The measure must be taken as most airlines require proof that their passengers are negative of Covid-19 before allowing them to board the plane, said Senior Minister (Security Cluster), Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
“To avoid complications at the airport and to avoid them from being barred from boarding the flight, they are requested to go for the required screening,” he said in a media briefing today.
He also said that the Special Ministers’ Meeting on the Movement Control Order had decided that expatriates who are allowed to enter Malaysia to work are not allowed to leave the country for holidays.
This is a fair treatment as Malaysians are still not allowed to leave the country for holidays.
“If they are found to breach this regulation, they will not be allowed to return to Malaysia until a date permitted in the future,” he said. –MalaysiaGazette
