KOTA KINABALU: Sabah will allow more Malaysians and state permanent residents who have tested negative for Covid-19 to enter the state, starting March 5.
Minister in charge of Covid-19 matters in Sabah, Datuk Masidi Manjun, said this would include Sabahans with the "H" code on their MyKads, their spouses and dependants, long-term immigration pass holders (citizens and non-citizens) and students of public and private higher learning institutions.
Temporary pass holders whose documents have expired and working in the civil service, members of statutory corporations, private sector employees and their dependants, spouses who are here for official matters or have hospital reviews will also be allowed in.
"Those who want to get married as well as transporters from Sarawak and Labuan can come in too," he said.
For anyone outside these categories mentioned, they must apply first, Masidi said.
"They can visit http://hednp.sabah.gov.my/ for more information," he said during his daily Covid-19 briefing here Thursday (March 4).
On the latest cases recorded, Sabah has 78 new cases with no new deaths or clusters.
Apart from the Nabawan district, which is still under a movement control order (MCO), the rest of Sabah is under the recovery MCO, he said.
