The offer has been opened and the Malaysian High Commissioner in Singapore has received 900 applications.

Security Senior Minister, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said, to ensure the travel process goes smoothly, the Malaysian National Security (MKN), Johor and the Malaysian Immigration Department have made a decision to allow 400 people to enter each day.

“This arrangement is made to ease the entry point at the Sultan Iskandar Building (Straits of Johor) and Sultan Abu Bakar Complexs (Second Link).

“However Malaysians coming back from Singapore have to go through a compulsory quarantine process for 14 days at the quarantine centres,” he said at a press conference on the daily progress of the Movement Control Order (MCO) here today.

In another development, the government has allowed private veterinary clinics to resume business during MCO provided the treatment services are based on appointments.

“The pet owners have to contact the nearest veterinary clinic to get an appointment date to avoid congestion and massive movements of the people,” said Ismail.
