MySejahtera Now Mandatory : RM1K Non-Compliance Fine!

COVID-19 contact tracing requires timely and accurate logging of everyone’s movements, which has been accomplished by many apps and manual logbooks in Malaysia.

However, to streamline and speed up the contact tracing process, the Malaysia National Security Council (MKN) announced on 9 February 2021 that MySejahtera logging is now mandatory.

MySejahtera Now Mandatory : RM1K Fine Otherwise!

Starting from Wednesday, 10 February 2021, everyone in Malaysia must log their movements in public areas using the MySejahtera app.

You can use other contact tracing apps as well, but only in addition to MySejahtera, which again is MANDATORY.

The use of manual logbooks is no longer allowed, except in rural areas where Internet connectivity is poor or not available.

If you are fail to log your movements using MySejahtera, you can be issued a fine of RM 1,000 per person, per offence!

However, the government did not detail how people who do not own a smartphone are supposed to log their visits.

Now, the RM 1,000 fine for not logging your movement in public places is not new. Malaysian netizens have shared videos and photos of enforcement checks for months now.


MySejahtera : What Is It?

MySejahtera is a mobile app developed by the Malaysian government. It serves as a contact tracing tool, as well as a way to disseminate verified information on COVID-19 in Malaysia.

Its users can log their movements by quickly and simply scanning a QR code at public places. This is a safer option to signing a logbook, because you won’t need to touch the logbook or use a shared pen.

Using MySejahtera also allows the Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) to easier and faster conduct contact tracing.

Please note that EVERY PERSON – including children and domestic helpers – must be registered.

Unfortunately, the government has not stated what people should do, if they do not have a smartphone.
