Malaysia’s Borders Remain Closed To Foreigners From High-Risk Countries

Citizens from 23 high-risk countries could not enter the country except with special permission from the Immigration Department as part of efforts to curb the spread of Covid-19, said Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

He said this at a press conference on the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) at Wisma Pertahanan when asked if Malaysia would allow Bangladeshi workers stranded in their home country to return to Malaysia to work despite the travel restriction.
