KUALA LUMPUR: Longs queues are forming at various district police stations tonight, following an announcement that Malaysians are required to obtain a special written permit to conduct interstate travel during the 14-day Restricted Movement Order (RMO).
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador said today that the move is necessary to curb the spread of Covid-19 in the country.
The New Straits Times obtained a photo of a long queue of people at a police station in Section 6, Shah Alam. It is not immediately known if the people in the image are applying to travel outside their respective states during the RMO.
Earlier, a form to obtain permission for interstate travel made its rounds on WhatsApp and social media.
On Monday, Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced the RMO, which is effective from March 18 to 31.
