Work in KL but live in Selangor? Do you need to fill in the travel permit to get to work?

Yesterday, when the National Security Council (MKN) released a complete list of the standard operating procedure (SOP) regarding the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) between 14 – 27 October 2020 in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya, many were left confused whether they will need to fill up the police form for their travels. So, who needs to fill up the form? Here’s your answer.

The form attached here is what MKN knows as the CMCO Travel Permit form or ‘Borang Permit Pergerakan Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan Bersyarat’.

Travellers coming into states that are currently observing a 2-week CMCO period are required to get permission from the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) before travelling. This means that they will need to fill in this form and submit it to the police station nearest to their residence.

If you were to forget to submit the form before travelling to either Selangor, KL or Putrajaya, simply head to the nearest police station at your current location to submit the request.

Those who are not planning to stop at either of the 3 states observing CMCO but will be passing through these states (example: starting for Johor and destination is Penang) are also required to fill-up the form.

But permission to pass through is subjected to the reason you need to pass through said states. PDRM is encouraging those who do not have an emergency to avoid the 3 states and will only grant permission to those with a valid emergency a pass-through permit.

For those who work in either Selangor, KL or Putrajaya but live in a different state (example: office in KL, residence in Selangor), do not require permission from the police to travel across districts.

All you need is a letter from the employer stating your name, position, IC, company name and company personnel’s contact number in case of emergency. This employer slip will be sufficient for PDRM to allow you through at a roadblock.

If you are planning to travel out via KLIA, KLIA 2 or Subang airport, you are also required to fill in the permission form and submit it to the police.

Remember, from 14 October 2020 to 27 October 2020, only 2 passengers are allowed in cars! Follow these SOPs and let’s stop the spread of Covid-19.
