PDRM Tightens Interstate Travel Even More!


PDRM Tightens Interstate Travel For Social Visits, Not Work!

On 21 April 2021, Dato’ Sri Acryl Sani clarified that those rules are only for social visits, like hometown visits, to attend weddings, banquets, prayers, the coming Hari Raya holidays, and other social activities.

He said that the existing SOP of allowing interstate travel for work, medical treatment and education continues. All you require is  :

  • a letter of authority / work permit from your company,
  • a letter from the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI),
  • hospital appointment, or letter from a doctor
  • a letter from a school or educational institute

This tightening of travel rules comes just 3 days after the Inspector-General of Police ordered that travel across state lines be limited to 3 circumstances only.

In addition, the Deputy IGP also instructed the police to monitor Ramadan bazaars and night markets. If they are found to have ignored COVID-19 SOP, the police will ask the local authorities to shut them down.


Interstate Travel Allowed For COVID-19 Vaccination!

On 15 April 2021, National Immunisation Programme Coordinating Minister Khairy Jamaluddin announced that interstate travel will be allowed for those helping family members make it to their COVID-19 vaccination appointments.

  • Only one person is allowed to travel across state lines to help family members make it to their COVID-19 vaccination appointments.
  • For example, someone working in KL can return to Negeri Sembilan to take his elderly mother for her vaccination.
  • That person will only need to show the vaccination appointment letter at state borders
