KUCHING, April 23: The federal government is temporarily easing travel restrictions imposed during the Movement Control Order (MCO) by allowing a one-off trip for those outstation and in villages to return home.

Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the federal government has temporarily relaxed some restrictions for those who are in the villages or outstation to travel home.

“The federal government is considering giving those who are in the villages or outstation the chance to go back home.

“We are thinking of giving a one-off trip for this.

“The permission is only for those who are trapped in the villages or outstation before the federal government implemented the first phase of the Movement Control Order (MCO),” Muhyiddin said during a live telecast over major broadcast channels on the eve of Ramadan at Putrajaya today.

He disclosed they may apply for travel arrangements online through an app prepared by the Royal Malaysia Police.

As announced by Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob previously, Muhyiddin said people who want to go back home may also make appointment to get the travel permit at the nearest police station.

He noted that it is important for the police to be informed of their travel arrangements and disclosed that the details of the travel arrangement will be made known in the near future. — DayakDaily
