Starting today, Malaysians and foreigners can apply to enter or exit the country during the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) via the MyTravelPass.

According to reports, Immigration Director-General Datuk Khairul Dzaimee Daud said the approval process will take about 5 working days.

If a person needs to enter or leave Malaysia on the 10th day, the MyTravelPass application must be submitted to the department before the fifth day. The application must include the relevant supporting documents.

Application will be made easy but approval is not guaranteed.

For locals and foreigners who fall into the category of being allowed to leave or enter directly without having to apply for prior approval, he said that this permission is still in force and they do not need to apply for permission through the MyTravelPass system.

He added that the number of categories is likely to be reviewed after RMCO ends on 31 December, but is subject to the situation at that time.

MyTravelPass system was developed by the Immigration Department’s Information Technology Division.
