Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office and Minister of Finance and Economy II Dato Seri Setia Dr Awang Haji Mohd Amin Liew bin Abdullah said the public is no longer required to apply for a permit to travel from Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).

He said this in response to a query on the exit travel permit requirements for public servants, yesterday.

“However, it is the government’s practice for employees to apply for a permit from their superiors before travelling, be it over their leave or public holidays,” the minister added.

On the rationale behind hotel quarantine for incoming domestic workers despite being allowed to quarantine at home, Dato Seri Setia Dr Awang Haji Mohd Amin Liew said the government has given allowance for incoming workers to isolate either at home or the hotel.

“This depends on the suitability of the isolation premise and the capability to serve food to individuals in isolation and other needs.”
