PUTRAJAYA: People are likely to be allowed to travel from one state to another by the first or second week of October (next month).

National Recovery Council chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said this after the council’s meeting today (Monday, Sept 27) which discussed many issues including the opening of many states for tourism and traveling.

“During the meeting, the council was told that interstate travel could be allowed early October or latest, the middle of the month.

“So, you can start making plans to travel the country after this.

“But at the same time, do not forget to practise Covid-19 SOPs (standard operating procedure),”  Muhyiddin told reporter at a press conference after the meeting.

According to the Star, Muhyiddin said the council also discussed the reopening of the country’s borders to tourists and business travellers.

“The reopening of the country’s borders was also discussed. This will be deliberated by the ministers involved within this week.

“They will be looking into whether to allow fully vaccinated Malaysians to travel abroad. At the same time, it will also be discussed whether to allow tourists and business travellers into our country.

“I believe that would bring a big effect to the country.

“So, this matter will be brought up to the Prime Minister, and an announcement on it could be made soon,” said Muhyiddin as quoted by the Star.
