Streamline process to certify those vaccinated abroad

ACCORDING to recent news, Malaysians who completed their Covid-19 vaccination abroad are required to get a certificate confirmed and recognised by the MySejahtera app. This can be done by contacting the nearest District Health Office.

My daughter is due to return from the United Kingdom soon, and as we live in Petaling Jaya, I made numerous calls to the nearest District Health Office. When I could not get any response from this office, I called a few others until I was finally given a number to contact.

I was subsequently informed that for Kuala Lumpur, those who got vaccinated overseas are not required to be physically present at the District Health Office to submit the required documents. These are to be submitted online only.

In Selangor, however, the individuals concerned must be physically present after completing their quarantine period, and online submissions will not be entertained.

Why are we having two sets of rules to address the same issue? If KL is able to accept online submissions, why can’t Selangor do the same? I hope the relevant authorities will look into this matter and streamline the process for the safety and convenience of all parties.
