KUALA LUMPUR: Essential service staff and providers will be able to travel within the Klang Valley for work without the need for an interstate travel exemption, says Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador.

The Inspector-General of Police also said on Tuesday (March 17) that "movement between Kuala Lumpur and Selangor is reasonable and there is no need to go to a police station".

Earlier Tuesday, Bukit Aman had announced that all interstate travel would require permission from the police during the movement control order period.

Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Datuk Noor Azam Jamaludin confirmed that there were long lines at a number of police stations in Selangor.

"We will entertain the public who wish to cross state lines with valid reasons.

"Many of these are students who want to go home for the two weeks to be with their families and we will not stop them.

"I also want to take the opportunity to advise those who are queuing up or thinking of coming down to the police station to practice good hygiene and always wear a mask," he said.

Abdul Hamid had also earlier said that anyone with queries on the movement control order could contact their nearest police station for more details.
