You can report smokers to the Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia via WhatsApp


Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia has recently made a tweet (which has been removed) stating that you can report smokers to them via WhatsApp. This is due to a recent restriction that was introduced on 1 January 2019 in which states that the use of cigarettes, shisha as well as e-cigarettes containing nicotine will not be allowed near a restaurant. Any individuals who fail to adhere to the restrictions will be fined up to RM10000 or up to 2 years jail time.

Based on the image courtesy of, the public has to include relevant information such as the name of the restaurant, address, time and date as well as a picture of the smoker that committed the offence within the restricted area.


On the other hand, restaurants can also be reported and fined if there is a “no smoking” sign located within the premise. For more updates like this, stay tuned to
