Malaysia interstate travel likely to be allowed in October

THE STAR – Interstate travel will likely be allowed during the first half of October, said Malaysia’s National Recovery Council Chairman Muhyiddin Yassin.

Muhyiddin said the issue was one of the things discussed during the council’s meeting yesterday, which included several other Cabinet ministers.

“During the meeting, the council was told that interstate travel could be allowed early October or latest, the middle of the month.

“So, you can start making plans to travel the country after this. But at the same time, do not forget to practise COVID-19 standard operating procedures,” said Muhyiddin at a press conference after the meeting.

Muhyiddin said the council also discussed the re-opening of the country’s borders to tourists and business travellers.

“The re-opening of the country’s borders was also discussed. This will be deliberated by the ministers involved within this week.”
