PUTRAJAYA: Those who miss the four-day interstate travel period to return home cannot make the trip after Sunday (May 10), unless they obtain police approval, says Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

The Senior Minister said under the movement control order (MCO), including the conditional MCO which is currently being enforced, interstate travelling is prohibited.

“Police have given four days, which is May 7 to 10, for those who have been stranded in their hometowns to make the journey home. After the four days, it is back to no interstate travelling.

“Those who miss this opportunity can reapply and can only travel if they obtain approval, ” he said on Monday (May 4).

Ismail urged those who wish to travel home to not miss the opportunity to do so because once interstate travel ban is enforced again, it will be up to the discretion of the police to allow them to make the journey.

According to the police, those who have registered for interstate travel are able to do so only on set dates, according to their states.

On May 7, only those from Kuala Lumpur can travel.

People in Perak, Johor and Kelantan will be able to move on May 8.

Those in Perlis, Kedah, Penang, Melaka and Pahang are allowed to travel on May 9.

Finally, for those in Selangor, Negri Sembilan and Terengganu, travel will be allowed on May 10.
