Interstate Travel Allowed Between RMCO States For Tourism Purposes Onlyjessie tan
Anyone else planning their vacation?
In his press conference today, Defence Minister, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri announced that the government has announced that interstate travel will now be allowed between states under Recovery Movement Control Order to help the suffering tourism industry.
However, the travel must strictly be for tourism purposes and using tourist vehicles only and private vehicles are still NOT allowed to travel interstate. The tourism agency will need to be registered under MOTEC (Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture) and they have to seek approval from PDRM before travelling.
If one is travelling from one RMCO state to another RMCO and passes through a state under CMCO, the vehicle is not allowed to stop in the area. For example, if one travels from Putrajaya to Melaka and passes through Negeri Sembilan, the driver is not allowed to stop at Negeri Sembilan as the state is still under CMCO.
To further help the tourism industry, the government has also declared Langkawi as a green zone which means tourists from RMCO areas will be allowed to visit the island but they have to be reminded that Kedah is still under CMCO.
