Is it true that you must scan MySejahtera at petrol stations, or you will get a RM1,000 fine?

PDRM says yes, but CPRC says no, so which is it??? Here is the final word, hopefully!


Register MySejahtera At Petrol Station, Or Get RM1K Fine?

According to PDRM, you must scan MySejahtera at the petrol station, even if you do not enter the convenience store. Otherwise, you could be subject to a RM1,000 fine!

Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department deputy director DCP Datuk Mior Faridalathrash Wahid said, “If the people do not register or scan, how will the police trace them if there are Covid-19 cases in the area?

Register MySejahtera At Petrol Station, Or Get Fined RM1K?

As petrol stations are high-traffic public spaces, it is mandatory to register your visit using MySejahtera, as well as wear a face mask have your temperature scanned, and use a hand sanitiser.

However, petrol station operators may not be aware of this requirement either, as they do not put up MySejahtera QR codes at their pumps for motorists to register their visits…


But CPRC Said MySejahtera Not Necessary At Petrol Station…

This email shows the CPRC (Crisis Preparedness and Respose Centre) team saying that it is NOT necessary to scan MySejahtera at the petrol station, if you are only refuelling at the pump or making payment.

So is it, or is it not necessary to scan MySejahtera at petrol stations??? Sadly, it appears that CPRC and PDRM are not on the same page.


Latest MySejahtera SOP For Petrol Stations : Scan Or Not?

On 10 November 2020, Malaysia’s Senior Minister for Security Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri, issued an updated SOP on the use of MySejahtera in petrol stations in this press conference.

Here is a summary of the updated MySejahtera SOP for petrol stations :

MUST Scan MySejahtera / Register Manually

  • Making payments or purchases inside the petrol station’s convenience store.
  • Using the ATM machines inside the petrol station’s convenience store.
  • Using the petrol station’s toilet or surau.
  • Sending your car to the petrol station’s workshop.
  • Sending you car for a manual car wash.

DO NOT Need To Scan MySejahtera / Register Manually

  • Self-serving at the pump, and paying using their credit or debit cards or online app.
  • Paying the cashier through the pigeonhole.
  • Self-inflating your own tyres.
  • Using the auto car wash, unless you are paying inside the petrol station’s convenience store.

MySejahtera : Why Scan It At Petrol Stations?

MySejahtera is a mobile app developed by the Malaysian government. It serves as a contact tracing tool, as well as a way to disseminate verified information on COVID-19 in Malaysia.

Its users can log their movements by quickly and simply scanning a QR code at public places. This is a safer option to signing a logbook, because you won’t need to touch the logbook or use a shared pen.

Even though petrol pumps in Malaysia are generally self-served, petrol stations are high traffic public areas with pump attendants and employees, as well as other customers, who may be infected.

Scanning MySejahtera at the petrol station will allow the authorities to quickly and accurately perform contact tracing if any infected person was at the petrol station.

That’s probably why PDRM made it mandatory to scan MySejahtera at the petrol station, even if you don’t enter the convenience store.
