Lee: Only MyKas for temporary residents has expiry date

KUALA LUMPUR: Only green MyKAS identity cards given to temporary residents has an expiry date, of not more than five years, the Dewan Rakyat was told.

Deputy Home Minister Datuk Lee Chee Leong said two types of identity cards, the blue MyKAD and red MyPR do not have expiry dates.

"MyKAS is given to a person who entered Malaysia legally and allowed to stay in the country through an immigration pass or permit valid for 12 months and above.

"MyKAS is also given to a person who was born in Malaysia but with undetermined citizenship or stateless," he said replying to M. Manogaran (DAP-Telok Intan) who had asked whether the government issued identity cards with an expiry date.

Lee said as of June 19, this year, 40,117 individuals had been issued MyKAS.

"Of the number, 1,313 MyKAS incorporated with high security features have been issued as of May under the smart partnership programme," he said. - Bernama
