PUTRAJAYA: Cross-border travel between recovery movement control order (MCO) states utilising the domestic travel bubble concept has been suspended in view of rising Covid-19 cases, said Senior Minister (Security) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

He said the National Security Council (NSC) special meeting had reviewed the current situation in the country and agreed to suspend this.

“We have earlier announced that interstate travel is not allowed for areas under MCO and conditional MCO.

“We have now suspended travelling for tourism purposes from one recovery MCO state to another.

“We will make an announcement on when the suspension will be lifted at a later date, ” he said on Tuesday (May 4).

Ismail Sabri explained that while travelling between recovery MCO states for tourism purposes is suspended, those living in such areas can continue to enjoy tourism activities in their own state.
