Those who wants to travel back to their urban homes can now register through online or at nearby police stations!


Ever since the beginning of the movement control order (MCO), Malaysians have been traveled back to their hometown to be with their families. Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced for those who are still at their hometowns that want to travel back to urban areas can start registering online and wait for approvals.

The government understands many wishes to return to their respective homes in urban areas, especially since the recent announcement on loosening restrictions for public and private university students to travel back to their hometowns. For those who wish to travel back, can now register via the Gerak Malaysia app with the police and Communications and Multimedia Ministry (MCMC) starting from 25 April or arrange an appointment with the nearby police station for those who unable to access the internet.


However, those who registered will need to wait for the final approval after 1 May before they can travel back to the urban areas. As the authorities need to get the green light from the National Security Council based on the advice of the Health Ministry. He also added there is a bit of difference between the students wanting to go back to their hometowns and those wanting to return to urban areas as the numbers and health status of the students are known by the authorities.

With that said, there’s a possibility the MCO will be ending soon or loosen up after 28 April. But do continue to stay at home and practice social distancing if you were to head to the police station for registrations. Stay tuned for more local news updates on!
