PUTRAJAYA: Undocumented foreigners in Malaysia will not be detained when they come for Covid-19 vaccinations.

Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said they should “come forward freely and be confident that the government will vaccinate them and not detain them.”

“That’s the implementation plan that is still being worked out by the foreign ministry, ” he said at a press conference here.

Khairy added that the Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) will be coming up with a plan on how to reach out to undocumented migrants.

“Foreign embassies, international organisations, civil society, NGOs can assist us on how to get undocumented foreigners to come out and get vaccinated, with the assurance that we are not detaining or apprehending them,” the minister said.
