How To Delete + Migrate Vaccine Dependent In MySejahtera?

How To Delete + Migrate Vaccine Dependent In MySejahtera?

Now that we will all need to show our digital vaccination certificate, find out how to DELETE and/or MIGRATE your vaccine dependent in MySejahtera!

 

MySejahtera : Why Delete + Migrate Vaccine Dependent?

I earlier taught you how to add a vaccine dependent to your MySejahtera account, allowing you to help another person to sign up for vaccination, if he/she does not have MySejahtera.

However, you will probably want to remove or migrate your vaccine dependents to their own MySejahtera accounts, so they can show their own digital vaccination certificate.

Deleting a vaccine dependent is easy, but migrating is another question altogether – will you lose your COVID-19 vaccine registration?

 

MySejahtera : How To Delete + Migrate Vaccine Dependent?

Technically, all vaccine registrations are tied to the person’s MyKad or passport number.

So once you registered a person for vaccination, that application remains in the system, even if you delete him/her as a vaccine dependent.

Thanks to one of our readers, Jerzy Awei, we have now the confirmed steps on how to safely migrate your vaccine dependents to their own MySejahtera accounts.

Here is our video on how to do just that!

For those who simply need to know how to delete a vaccine dependent, please skip straight to Part 2.

Part 1 : Register New MySejahtera Account For Vaccine Dependent

This part is only necessary if you want to migrate your vaccine dependent to his/her own MySejahtera account.

  1. Download and install MySejahtera from these app stores into your dependent’s smartphone :
    Google Play Store
    Apple App Store
    HUAWEI App Gallery
    GAMMA
  2. Open MySejahtera and tap on Register Here.
  3. Key in your dependent’s mobile number or email address (Note : this will become be your dependent’s MySJ ID).
  4. MySejahtera will send your dependent’s mobile number or email address an OTP (One Time Pin).
    Key that in, and tap Send, to verify your dependent’s registration.
  5. Key in your dependent’s personal details.
  6. Set a password for your dependent and tap Confirm.

That’s it! You have successfully set up MySejahtera for your dependent!

Part 2 : Deleting Vaccine Dependent From MySejahtera Account

  1. Open MySejahtera in your smartphone.
  2. Tap on the Close button on the upper right corner of the default Check-in screen.
  3. You should see the MySejahtera main screen, with the COVID-19 Vaccination option.
  4. Tap on the COVID-19 Vaccination option.

  1. Tap on the second option – Add Vaccine Dependent.

  1. You will be shown a screen with your registered dependents.
  2. To delete the vaccine dependent, simply tap on the Remove vaccine dependent link.

Part 3 : Updating Dependent MySejahtera

  1. Open MySejahtera in your dependent’s smartphone.
  2. Tap on the Close button on the upper right corner of the default Check-in screen.
  3. You should see the MySejahtera main screen, with the COVID-19 Vaccination option.
  4. Tap on the COVID-19 Vaccination option.

  1. Select Vaccine for [your dependent’s name]

  1. You will be asked to verify your dependent’s Name, IC / Passport No and MySJ ID. Tap Confirm if they are correct.

  1. Skip the vaccine registration process (unless you need to update it).
  2. Go back and tap on the Vaccine for [your dependent’s name] again.

  1. Your dependent’s vaccine appointment should now be visible!
    If your dependent is vaccinated, then you should be able to view his / her COVID-19 vaccination digital certificate.

I hope you found this guide useful.

Please don’t forget to SHARE this out with your family and friends, so they will also know how to delete and migrate their vaccine dependents!

Vaccine Exemption Certificate In Malaysia : How To Get One?

Find out how to get a COVID-19 vaccine exemption in Malaysia, with a digital certificate in MySejahtera!

 

Vaccine Exemption Certificate In Malaysia : What Is It?

Everyone who gets vaccinated in Malaysia receives a MySejahtera digital COVID-19 vaccination certificate, as well as a physical vaccination card.

They are both accepted as proof of your vaccination, but the digital COVID-19 vaccination certificate is definitely much more convenient to use.

But what about those who cannot get vaccinated? They can’t get the vaccine, and won’t be able to freely work or travel.

Fortunately, there is a solution – a digital vaccine exemption certificate in MySejahtera, granting them the same privileges as those who are fully-vaccinated.

 

Vaccine Exemption Certificate In Malaysia : How To Get One?

First, it must be pointed out that the vaccine exemption certificate will only be issued to those who cannot be vaccinated due to medical issues.

It will not be issued to those who choose not to be vaccinated out of personal conviction, philosophical or religious reasons.

Hence, it requires a pre-vaccination assessment to be conducted by a medical professional at a private hospital or a government clinic / hospital.

Read more : Is COVID-19 Vaccine Useless Against Delta Variant?

Here are the steps you need to take to obtain the vaccine exemption certificate :

  1. Obtain a Pre-Vaccination Assessment Slip from any of these medical professionals :
    a) your treating medical professional at a private hospital,
    b) a family medicine specialist at a government clinic, or
    c) a treating specialist / medical officer at a specialist government hospital
  2. Submit the Pre-Vaccination Assessment Slip to the nearest District Health Office (PKD).
  3. Your application will be processed within 7 days.

Once it’s been verified that you have an absolute contraindication to any of the approved COVID-19 vaccine, you will receive the COVID-19 vaccine exemption digital certificate in MySejahtera.

This will grant you the same privileges as those who are fully-vaccinated.

2 Ways To Get MySejahtera Certificate For Overseas Vaccine!

Here are TWO WAYS to apply for a MySejahtera digital vaccination certificate if you received your COVID-19 vaccine overseas!

 

MySejahtera Digital Vaccination Certificate For Overseas Vaccine?

Everyone who gets vaccinated in Malaysia receives a MySejahtera digital COVID-19 vaccination certificate, as well as a physical vaccination card.

They are both accepted as proof of your vaccination, but the digital COVID-19 vaccination certificate is definitely much more convenient to use.

You can still use your physical vaccination card, but you will still need to show your MySejahtera profile for them to verify your identity. So it’s not as convenient.

 

2 Ways To Get MySejahtera Certificate For Overseas Vaccine!

If you received your COVID-19 vaccine overseas, you are in a pickle because you will not have this MySejahtera digital vaccination certificate.

Neither can you use your overseas physical vaccine card, as it is not recognised in Malaysia.

Fortunately, there are TWO (2) ways to get your overseas COVID-19 vaccine recognised, and obtain the MySejahtera digital vaccination certificate!

Option 1 : Walk Into Nearest District Health Office

On 5 September 2021, JKJAV – the Special Committee on COVID-19 Vaccine Supply – announced how those who were vaccinated overseas can get their digital COVID-19 vaccination certificate :

  1. Go to the nearest District Health Office (PKD).
  2. Submit evidence that you have been fully vaccinated overseas to the PKD officials.
    This can either be a physical vaccination card, or the digital vaccination certificate issued by the particular country.
  3. PKD officials will verify and send the information on your overseas vaccination to MySejahtera through the State Health Department.
  4. You will receive your digital COVID-19 vaccination certificate in MySejahtera.

You can use this Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) directory to locate the nearest District Health Office (PKD).

Option 2 : Submit Through MySejahtera

On 4 October 2021, JKJAV introduced a more convenient option – registering your overseas vaccine details through the MySejahtera app or website.

  1. Open the MySejahtera app, and click Close on the default check-in page.
    Alternatively, open the MySejahtera Helpdesk on your web browser, and go to Step 3.
  2. Tap on the MySejahtera Helpdesk option in the main screen.
  3. Tap option N – I have received my vaccination overseas and would like to obtain my digital vaccination certificate in MySejahtera.
  4. Key in your telephone number and email address.
  5. Select whether you had the first dose only, the second dose only, or both doses.
  6. You will be asked to fill in your vaccination details.
  7. Finally, you will need to ppload a picture of your foreign vaccination card or document.

Once verified, your overseas vaccine details will be submitted to the MySejahtera team, and you will be issued a digital COVID-19 vaccination certificate.

If you need a step-by-step guide with pictures, please see our guide, How To Register Overseas Vaccination In MySejahtera!

Verified : KKM + MySejahtera SMS Messages Are Legit!

Are scammers sending fake SMS messages from KKM and MySejahtera to scam you out of your money?

Take a look at the viral post, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : KKM + MySejahtera SMS Messages Are Fake!

People have been sharing a screenshot of two SMS messages from KKM (Malaysia Ministry of Health) and MySejahtera, claiming that they are scam messages.

RM0 MySejahtera: You are COVID-19 positive. Kindly refresh your MySejahtera Profile and click to declare your close contact: https://bit.ly/3jNvOqL

RM0 KKM Anda adlh COVID19 positif & masih belum menjawab status kesihatan hari ini. Segera lengkapkan H.A.T. di MySejahtera. Rujuk https://bit.ly/2VMaWrC

This is a scam. If receive don’t click. Please inform all ur family members and friends ….NETIZEN WATCHDOG

Many also include a link to the Kuan Evening Edition video to prove that these messages are indeed fake messages used by scammers in “phishing attacks”.

 

Truth : KKM + MySejahtera SMS Messages Are Legit!

The SMS messages in the screenshot are legit, and came from KKM and MySejahtera.

The truth is that viral message is FAKE NEWS, and here are the facts…

Fact #1 : The MySejahtera SMS Message Is Legitimate

The MySejahtera SMS message in English is legitimate. It warns you that you have tested positive for COVID-19.

You are therefore required to declare your close contacts in the MySejahtera app or website.

The link – https://bit.ly/3jNvOqL – leads to the Close Contact reporting page in the MySejahtera website (https://mysejahtera.malaysia.gov.my/help/closecontact/).

Fact #2 : The KKM Telephone Number Is Genuine

On 24 September 2021, KKM confirmed that the 03-2703-3000 telephone number is genuine.

The Malaysia Ministry of Health uses that telephone number to call those identified as COVID-19 positive to fill up their Home Assessment Tool (HAT) in the MySejahtera app.

Fact #3 : The KKM SMS Message Is Legitimate

The KKM SMS message in Bahasa Malaysia is also legitimate.

It is a reminder that you did not fill in your Home Assessment Tool (HAT) in the MySejahtera app today.

Those who are under home quarantine must complete that home assessment test every day.

The Ministry of Health may issue a compound if you fail to perform the home assessment test, as required.

The link in the SMS – https://bit.ly/2VMaWrC – actually leads to a PDF infographic on the Home Assessment Tool (HAT) – https://www.infosihat.gov.my/images/media_sihat/poster/pdf/DiManakahHAT.pdf

The infographic explains who needs to perform self-monitoring using the HAT feature, and how to do it in the MySejahtera app.

Now that you know the truth, please SHARE this fact check, so your family and friends won’t be fooled by the fake news!

It is critical that everyone understands that these alerts are genuine, and take them seriously!

New In MySejahtera : Risk Level, Vax Status + Check-Out!

MySejahtera just introduced a more prominent display of your COVID-19 risk level and vaccination status, as well as a new Check-out button!

 

New In MySejahtera : Risk Level + Vaccination Status Display

Now that a majority of Malaysians have been vaccinated – 60% of all adult citizens as of 2 September 2021 – the government believes it is time to learn to live with COVID-19.

To that end, the MySejahtera team will be pushing out a new built (version) that will make the display of your COVID-19 Risk Level and Vaccination Status more prominent.

Both are currently “hidden” in your MySejahtera profile, and the update will bring them to the forefront, to make it easier for you to display them.

 

New In MySejahtera : Check-Out Button

One design flaw of the original MySejahtera contact tracing feature is that it only logged when you check INTO a location. There was never an option to check OUT of a location.

Belatedly, the MySejahtera team will be adding a check-out button. You just need to tap Check-out whenever you leave the premise – there is no need to scan any QR code.

With this feature, you will be able to let contact tracers know exactly how long you were within a certain premise.

Without knowing exactly how long you were in a certain premise, contact tracers will not be able to determine if you are truly at risk of being a close contact of a COVID-19 infected person.

For example, if you pop into Village Grocer for 15 minutes and a COVID-19 positive person came to shop an hour later, contact tracers will not know if you are at risk if they do not know when you left the store.

This will inevitably lead to a large number of people wrongly identified as close contacts, when they were never at risk at all.

This new check-out feature will be critical in reducing the number of false close contacts who will be required to home quarantine.

 

When Will These New MySejahtera Features Be Available?

These new features will be available in MySejahtera 1.0.45, with these changes :

  • Enhancements to check-in page to display vaccination status
  • New Check-out feature
  • Minor bug fixes

It was made available in the Apple App Store for iPhone users on 2 September, but only appeared in the Google Play Store for Android users on 5 September 2021.

Missing COVID-19 Status In MySejahtera? Here’s Why!

Did the COVID-19 Status option in your MySejahtera app suddenly disappear?

Find out what’s going on, and how to get it back again!

 

Missing COVID-19 Status In MySejahtera?

The MySejahtera app can be quite buggy, and people have noticed how sometimes the COVID-19 status option can mysteriously DISAPPEAR!

On the left is what you should see – COVID-19 Status is the first option available in MySejahtera.

On the right is what some people are getting – the option is missing!

They have tried checking in the More section, updating MySejahtera, flushing the app cache, and even reinstalling it.

But nothing worked – COVID-19 Status is confirmed missing in MySejahtera. So what’s going on???

 

Here’s Why COVID-19 Status Goes Missing In MySejahtera!

Now, MySejahtera has its share of bugs, but the missing COVID-19 Status option appears to be INTENTIONAL.

This status update feature is meant for a Low Risk person to alert the Malaysia Ministry of Health to any change to their risk status :

  • Started exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms?
  • Travelled overseas?
  • Had contact with a positive COVID-19 patient?
  • Attended any mass gathering in the past 14 days?

To avoid misuse, MySejahtera appears to have designed to automatically REMOVE the status update option for people who are NO LONGER Low Risk.

  • Casual Contact
  • Close Contact
  • Person Under Surveillance (PUS)
  • Suspected Case
  • Confirmed Case

 

How To Get Back Missing COVID-19 Status In MySejahtera?

You don’t have to do anything.

Once your COVID-19 status has officially returned to Low Risk, the feature will automatically reappear in your MySejahtera app.

You should note that you do NOT need to keep updating your COVID-19 Status in MySejahtera.

The Malaysia Ministry of Health just issued a clarification of their own, to avoid any further misunderstandings.

You are only required to update your COVID-19 status in MySejahtera in these cases :

  1. You have symptoms like fever, cough, headache, sore throat, breathing difficulty, loss of smell, loss of taste, or
  2. You have recent history of travelling overseas, or
  3. You have close contact with COVID-19 positive cases, or
  4. You attended any event, or been to areas associated with a known COVID-19 cluster.

Based on the questions asked, you should also update your status if you are a MOH COVID-19 volunteer in the last 14 days.

Otherwise, you are NOT REQUIRED to update your status in MySejahtera. You will certainly NOT BE FINED if you don’t do it.

Now that you know what’s going on, please SHARE this article with your family and friends too!

The Digital Consent Form for COVID-19 vaccination is available with MySejahtera version 1.0.40 onwards.

There are a couple of things to note about this new feature :

  1. It only applies to those who have NOT received their first vaccine dose, and therefore, have NOT signed a physical consent form.
  2. If you have already received your first vaccine dose, or signed a physical consent form, you do NOT need to use this digital form.
  3. You need to read and fill up the Digital Consent Form BEFORE heading to the vaccination centre.

Follow these steps to use the Digital Consent Form feature in MySejahtera :

  1. Make sure you have already installed MySejahtera 1.0.40 or later.
  2. Open MySejahtera and tap Close on the default Check-in screen.
  3. Tap on the COVID-19 Vaccination option.

  1. You will see a list of Vaccination registrations (including Vaccine Dependents, if you have any).
  2. Select the Vaccination registration you need.
  3. Scroll to the 1st Dose appointment section, and you should see the option to :
    Click here to confirm your digital consent, or
    Click here to confirm your dependent’s digital consent (for your Vaccine Dependents)

  1. You will see a list of Vaccination registrations (including Vaccine Dependents, if you have any).
  2. Read through the form, and tick any necessary checkboxes for your health history.
  3. Once you are satisfied, tick “With this, I agree to receive the COVID-19 vaccine” option and tap Submit.

That’s it! Your vaccine appointment will be updated to show that you digitally consented to the vaccine.

Once this is done, the process for your vaccine appointment will shorter and smoother.

You won’t even need to bring a pen and something stiff to write on!

So please try to use this Digital Consent Form feature in MySejahtera, and tell your friends about it!

On 15 June 2021, the Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) announced that the National Pharmaceutical Regulatory Agency (NPRA) approved the use of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine in children 12 years and above.

With this approval, children aged 12 years and above will be able to sign up for the COVID-19 vaccination programme.

MySejahtera has been updated to allow registration of children for the COVID-19 vaccine, so here is our video guide on how to do that!

 

How To Register Children For Vaccine In MySejahtera Guide

For those who prefer a step-by-step guide with pictures, here is our guide on registering your children for vaccine in MySejahtera :

  1. Make sure you update to MySejahtera 1.0.37 or later before you proceed.
  2. Open MySejahtera.
  3. Tap on the Close button on the upper right corner of the default Check-in screen.
  4. You should see the MySejahtera main screen, and it should show you a new COVID-19 Vaccination option.

  1. Tap on the COVID-19 Vaccination option and it will show you this information display.
  2. Tap on the second option – Add Vaccine Dependent.

  1. You will be shown a screen with your registered dependents.
  2. If you did not add any dependents yet, you can do so by tapping on the Add Vaccination Dependent option at the bottom.
    Otherwise, skip to Step 12.

  1. Key in your dependent’s details – Full name, Relationship with you, NRIC / Passport number, Age, Gender, Current Address and Post Code, and State.
  2. Check the details and tap Save when you are done.

  1. Your newly-added dependent will now appear in the list of dependents.

  1. Tap on the Add as vaccine dependent option of the dependent you wish to register.
  2. You will be asked to confirm that you have the authority to manage the vaccination process for your dependent.
    You are also asked to note that once this dependent is registered to your MySejahtera account, he/she cannot be registered for the COVID-19 vaccine programme with a different MySejahtera account.
  3. Tap on Yes, Proceed to proceed with the registration.

  1. You will be asked to verify your dependent’s name and MyKad / Passport number; as well as confirm that he/she is over 12 years old.
    Technically, it should state 12 years old and older, because the COVID-19 vaccine programme is open to those who are 12 years of age too.
  2. If you notice any mistake, tap Edit to change the name and IC / Passport number.
  3. Otherwise, tap the I confirm that my dependent is over 12 years old check box, and tap Submit.

  1. You will be asked to answer four simple questions, , as well as your child’s location.
  2. MySejahtera automatically uses your GPS location, so key the location manually if your child is not living together with you.
    Make sure you also key in the State and Postcode for your child’s current location.

  1. Please BE HONEST in this assessment. It will, after all, be verified by the Ministry of Health.
    When it comes to Question no. 2 – Do you have any comorbities? – that refers to any medical condition your child has.
    For your reference, this includes :
    • Diabetes mellitus
    • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
    • Heart disease
    • Asthma
    • Cancer
    • Chronic lung disease
    • Kidney disease
    • Liver disease
    • Stroke
    • Low Immunity (Immunocompromised)
    • Obesity
    • Others

  1. Once you are done, tap Submit, and you will see a Thank You notice appear.

  1. In the Vaccination Dependent list, your child will have a green checkmark next to his/her name.
  2. If you made any mistake, you can tap on Remove vaccine dependent, and begin the process all over again, from Step 12.

Then all you have to do is wait for the Malaysia Ministry of Health to contact you when it is your child’s turn to be vaccinated against COVID-19!

When + How To Update COVID-19 Status In MySejahtera!

Find out WHEN and HOW to update your COVID-19 status in MySejahtera!

 

COVID-19 Status In MySejahtera : Is There A Need To Update?

For over a week now, people have been sharing FAKE NEWS about the requirement to update your COVID-19 status.

Then there was the big hoohah by the police who issued a RM 2K fine to factory workers who did not update their COVID-19 status in MySejahtera on a daily basis!

That was “clarified” the next day by the National Security Council (MKN) to be a mistake, with the fines to be dismissed.

 

COVID-19 Status In MySejahtera : When To Update?

So when exactly are you need to update your COVID-19 status in MySejahtera?

The Malaysia Ministry of Health just issued a clarification of their own, to avoid any further misunderstandings.

You are only required to update your COVID-19 status in MySejahtera in these cases :

  1. You have symptoms like fever, cough, headache, sore throat, breathing difficulty, loss of smell, loss of taste, or
  2. You have recent history of travelling overseas, or
  3. You have close contact with COVID-19 positive cases, or
  4. You attended any event, or been to areas associated with a known COVID-19 cluster.

Based on the questions asked, you should also update your COVID-19 status if you are a MOH COVID-19 volunteer in the last 14 days.

Otherwise, you are NOT REQUIRED to update your COVID-19 status in MySejahtera.

You will certainly NOT BE FINED if you don’t do it.

 

How To Update COVID-19 Status In MySejahtera?

While it is not mandatory for the public to update the COVID-19 status in MySejahtera, it is still a good practice to take the survey once in a while.

This video, which was shared on social media, shows you how to update your COVID-19 status in MySejahtera.

For those who prefer a step-by-step guide with pictures, here is how you update your COVID-19 status in MySejahtera!

  1. Open MySejahtera.
  2. Tap Close in the default Check-in screen.
  3. Tap on COVID-19 Status.

  1. Click Start to begin the MySejahtera COVID-19 survey.
  2. Answer the six survey questions and tap Submit.

That’s it! You have successfully updated your COVID-19 status in MySejahtera.

If you go to your profile, you will see that the date has changed.

No Need To Update MySejahtera Daily, Fines Cancelled!

MKN just clarified this controversy – there is NO NEED to update your COVID-19 status in MySejahtera every day!

Not only for the public, but also factory workers! Here are the details!

 

Update MySejahtera Daily, Or Get Fined?

For several days now, people were sharing a WhatsApp message about updating MySejahtera every alternate day to avoid a RM1,000 fine.

Dear all, you must refresh n update ur Mysejahtera every alternate day. If your profile showing last updates in Mar or Apr, you will kena saman RM1k. Yesterday Seapark market many policemen were checking everybody app and next week no more warning, straight 1k compound. Today groceries at Tesco, same thing. One lady check everybody app before allowing us to go in.

How to check:
tap at bottom right space bar, Your Profile,
You should see
As of 31st May 2021.

If it is not up-to-date,
Go to MySejahtera home.
Select Covid-19 status.
Answer the 6 questions. again, then submit.
Check again your profile.

Please make sure your my sejahtera is up to date.

Things ratcheted up when they started sharing a video of a police press conference, with a new warning – update MySejahtera every day, or face a RM2,000 fine!

 

No Need To Update MySejahtera Daily, Fines Cancelled!

We fact-checked the claims yesterday, noting that updating our COVID-19 status in MySejahtera isn’t even required in the General COVID-19 SOP or even the Manufacturing SOP.

But we still get people questioning our fact-check, so here is DEFINITIVE CONFIRMATION on this controversy. Please read this and STOP SHARING FAKE NEWS!

No Requirement To Update MySejahtera Every Day!

The Director General of the National Security Council (MKN) Mohd Rabin bin Basir confirmed that there is no requirement to update your COVID-19 status in MySejahtera every day.

It is not in the General COVID-19 SOP, and as we explained in our fact-check, it’s not even in the Manufacturing SOP.

In fact, the latest 31 May 2021 Manufacturing SOP only required daily COVID-19 status updates for workers who were found to be COVID-19 positive, or close contacts.

Only Update MySejahtera In Certain Situations

He confirmed this with Raja Zawawi from the Ministry of Health, who said that only those who experienced symptoms or travelled overseas should take the COVID-19 survey to update their status in MySejahtera.

Based on the questions, you only need to retake the COVID-19 survey test, and update your status in MySejahtera if :

  • you experienced symptoms like cough, breathing difficulty, loss of smell, loss of taste
  • attended events or went to a location associated with a COVID-19 cluster
  • travelled overseas before experiencing symptoms
  • been in close contact with any confirmed or suspected COVID-19 cases before experiencing symptoms
  • been a MOH COVID-19 volunteer in the last 14 days

Factory Fines To Be Cancelled

The Director General of MKN “advised” the Manjung Police to “take appropriate action and request that the District Health Office cancel the fine“.

RM2K Fine For Not Updating MySejahtera Status Every Day?

Is it true that you must update your MySejahtera status every day, or you could face a RM2,000 fine?

Find out what this new viral claim is all about, and what the FACTS really are!

Updated @ 2021-06-07 : Added update on the police being asked to cancel the fine.

Claim : RM2K Fine For Not Updating MySejahtera Status Every Day!

For several days now, people were sharing a WhatsApp message about updating MySejahtera every alternate day to avoid a RM1,000 fine.

Dear all, you must refresh n update ur Mysejahtera every alternate day. If your profile showing last updates in Mar or Apr, you will kena saman RM1k.

Please make sure your my sejahtera is up to date.

Now, they are sharing a video of a police press conference, with a new warning – update MySejahtera every day, or face a RM2,000 fine!

Must update/ refresh your MySejahtera daily… if you go out. Otherwise compound RM2000.

 

NO FINE For Not Updating MySejahtera COVID-19 Status!

All those warnings about updating your COVID-19 status on MySejahtera are FALSE.

You won’t get fined for not updating your MySejahtera status. There is no such requirement even in the latest MCO 3.0 full lockdown SOP.

Here are the facts…

Fact #1 : Not Mandatory To Update Your COVID-19 Status

The date in your profile merely states when you last took the COVID-19 Status survey.

It is good practice to update your COVID-19 status, but it is currently NOT MANDATORY.

Therefore, you do not need to fear getting a fine merely because you forgot to redo the COVID-19 status survey.

Fact #2 : SOP Does Not Require Daily COVID-19 Status Update!

The police press conference is genuine, but was misinterpreted. The 29 people who were fined RM 2,000 were all employees of a factory in Manjung, Perak.

According to the police, it is mandatory for factory employees to take the COVID-19 status survey in MySejahtera on a daily basis.

When the Manjung police went to inspect a factory in the Kampong Aceh Industrial Zone in Sitiawan, they found that 29 workers did not update their COVID-19 status in MySejahtera.

In their Facebook page, the Manjung police clarified that the workers were fined under the Manufacturing SOP, not the General (COVID-19) SOP which applies to the public.

However, the 31 May 2021 Manufacturing SOP only required daily COVID-19 status updates for workers who were found to be COVID-19 positive, or close contacts.

In both cases, the workers are supposed to be quarantined, so there is no question of them working, much less updating their MySejahtera COVID-19 status daily to check-in at the factory!

Fact #3 : MKN Confirmed This As False

A day after the fine was issued, the National Security Council (MKN) clarified that there is NO SUCH REQUIREMENT in the SOP.

The Director General of MKN also “advised” the Manjung Police to “take appropriate action and request that the District Health Office cancel the fine”.

Recommended : No Need To Update MySejahtera Daily, Fines Cancelled!

Fact #4 : COVID-19 Status Can Restrict Your Movements

Your COVID-19 status is important, because it may restrict you from entering public places like malls and even vaccination centres, as the graphic below shows.

However, it is not reliant on your input. Even if you do not update your COVID-19 status by taking the MySejahtera survey, your COVID-19 status may change because of contact tracing by the Ministry of Health.

If you happen to come into close contact with any COVID-19 positive person, your COVID-19 status in MySejahtera will change to reflect that, and you will be barred from entering public places.

That is why it is currently mandatory for public places like malls and vaccination centres to check your COVID-19 status before letting you in.

How To Update MySejahtera COVID-19 Status?

While it is not mandatory for the public to update the COVID-19 status in MySejahtera, it is still a good practice to take the survey once in a while.

This video, which was shared on social media, shows you how to update your COVID-19 status in MySejahtera.

New MySejahtera Vaccine Appointment Feature For Seniors?

Is it true that MySejahtera has a new vaccine appointment feature for senior citizens of 60 years and above?

Find out what is this new MySejahtera feature that is going viral on social media, and what the FACTS really are!

 

New MySejahtera Vaccine Appointment Feature For Seniors?

People are posting and sharing messages about a new MySejahtera feature that lets senior citizens of 60 years and above request for COVID-19 vaccine appointments.

Here are two examples of those viral messages :

For those above 60,who still do not have an appointment for your vaccination,you can go to MySejahtera Helpdesk,and press B

For all those who are yet to get your vaccination appointment.

FYI
For those above 60 yrs and have yet to get vaccination date, you can do the following:-
1. open mysejahtera
2. click on help desk
3. Start
4. Select option B
5. You will be given an appointment.

It’s for 60yrs n above.

 

Not A New MySejahtera Vaccine Appointment Feature For Seniors…

The viral messages are not exactly correct.

This is NOT a new MySejahtera feature lets senior citizens request for, and receive, a COVID-19 vaccine appointment.

This is really a Helpdesk alternative to the JKJAV hotline for people who have already registered for their COVID-19 vaccination.

This is similar to the new Helpdesk features that allow people to check, change or cancel their vaccine appointments online, instead of through the JKJAV hotline.

Here are the facts…

Fact #1 : It Is Not A New MySejahtera App Feature

The viral messages ask us to open the MySejahtera app and tap on Helpdesk to get to the new vaccine appointment feature.

The truth is tapping on the Helpdesk option in the MySejahtera app merely opens up a web browser, and redirects you to the online MySejahtera Helpdesk website.

You don’t even need to use the MySejahtera app. You can access the MySejahtera Helpdesk website using any Internet browser via these links – English | Bahasa Melayu.

Fact #2 : It Is Just A New Help Option

The truth is – this is just a new Helpdesk option, to help people check for their COVID-19 vaccine appointments, and for the MySejahtera team identify those who didn’t get their vaccine appointments yet.

If you select B. 60 years old and above but haven’t received my appointment (Phase 2), you will be asked if you have  chronic illness or not.

Whatever option you select, you will be taught how to check for your vaccine appointment in MySejahtera :

  • Click on the COVID-19 Vaccination icon on the MySejahtera main page.
  • Choose the Vaccine for [your name] option to view your appointment details

And if you still do NOT see your vaccine appointment, then you are asked to submit your MySejahtera user ID (MySJ ID) and your MyKad or passport number.

In the next page, you will be asked to submit your mobile number and an email address for them to write back to you on what to do next.

This will allow the MySejahtera team to look into your vaccine appointment, or why your MySejahtera app does not display the vaccine appointments.

It does NOT mean you will be automatically given your COVID-19 vaccine appointments, as the viral messages claim.

Your COVID-19 vaccine appointment will be issued according to these criteria :

  • when you registered for COVID-19 vaccination
  • your age
  • if you have any co-morbidities (chronic illness)
  • your location

Nowhere in this process do you see it being mentioned that this feature allows you to request for a vaccine appointment.

Fact #3 : It Is More Convenient Than Calling Hotline

To be clear, this is a legitimate Helpdesk option to help senior citizens age 60 years and above check for their COVID-19 vaccine appointments.

It is no different than calling the JKJAV hotline at 1800-888-828, to ask why you have not received your vaccine appointment.

Now that this new Helpdesk option has been introduced, you should definitely use it instead of calling the JKJAV hotline, which is always busy and hard to get through.

Fact #4 : This Is Not A Vaccine Registration Feature

This new Helpdesk option helps to identify senior citizens who may not have received their appointments, possibly due to these reasons :

  • not aware of where to look for vaccine appointment details
  • did not even register for COVID-19 vaccination
  • MySejahtera app cache corruption

However, it is not a replacement for the COVID-19 vaccine registration process. You cannot use this “method” to ask for a COVID-19 vaccine appointment if you have not yet registered for it.

Even with the introduction of this new Helpdesk feature, you must still register yourself for COVID-19 vaccination through these five ways :

  1. The MySejahtera app – a future update will introduce a button to register for an appointment.
  2. The Vaksin COVID website.
  3. The telephone hotline : 1800-888-828
  4. Manually at health clinics, hospitals and private clinics
  5. House-to-house registration at targeted rural areas for senior citizens.

Please make sure you register for your free COVID-19 vaccine ASAP!

Failed To Get AstraZeneca 2.0? Check MySejahtera Anyway!

If you failed to get a slot in the AstraZeneca 2.0 vaccine programme, you should still check MySejahtera anyway.

That’s because many people who failed to get a slot just discovered that their application actually succeeded!

 

Failed To Get AstraZeneca 2.0? Check MySejahtera Anyway!

Many people had trouble getting a slot for the AstraZeneca 2.0 vaccine programme when it was opened up to people below 60 years of age.

Not only was it delayed, people soon found that it was impossible to open up the list of available slots, even with a lot of frustrated banging on their keyboards and phone displays!

But today, many of them are reporting that they were issued vaccine appointments in their MySejahtera, even though they thought they failed to get into AstraZeneca 2.0!

Here are three examples sent to us – each one thought they failed in registering for AstraZeneca 2.0, but somehow received their vaccine appointments anyway!

So just keep an eye out on MySejahtera, even if you thought you failed to get a slot in the AstraZeneca 2.0 vaccine programme. It is possible that your application went through, but the system was too jammed to show you the Thank you message.

 

How To Check For AstraZeneca 2.0 Appointment In MySejahtera?

For those who are not sure, here is our step-by-step guide on how to check for AstraZeneca 2.0 appointments in MySejahtera!

  1. Make sure you update to MySejahtera 1.0.28 or later before you proceed.
  2. Open MySejahtera.
  3. Tap on the Close button on the upper right corner of the default Check-in screen.
  4. You should see the MySejahtera main screen, and it should show you a new COVID-19 Vaccination option.

  1. Tap on the COVID-19 Vaccination option and it will show you this information display.
  2. Tap on the first option – Vaccine for [your name here] – to start with the registration process.

  1. You should now see your first dose appointment details – the location, date and time.

 

Prepare For Your AstraZeneca 2.0 Appointments!

Before you go for your AstraZeneca 2.0 vaccination appointment, please make sure you bring :

  • Your MyKad / passport
  • Your smartphone with MySejahtera
  • A pen and something stiff to write on – there are no writing tables there!
  • A face mask to wear!

    • Liver disease
    • Stroke
    • Low Immunity (Immunocompromised)
    • Obesity
    • Others

  1. Once you are done, tap Submit, and your dependent will have a green checkmark next to it.
  2. If you made any mistake, you can tap on Remove vaccine dependent, and begin the process all over again, from Step 12.

Then all you have to do is wait for the Malaysia Ministry of Health to contact you when it is your dependent’s turn to be vaccinated against COVID-19!

Warning : Pahang Limits Dining To Just 1 Hour!

Please be warned that Pahang limits dining at eateries, cafes and restaurants to just 1 hour!

 

Warning : Pahang Limits Dining To Just 1 Hour!

On 5 March 2021, Pahang switched to the less stringent RMCO / PKPP restrictions, which allowed some limited tourism, as well dining in at eateries, cafes and restaurants.

However, the Pahang Disaster Management Committee decided to impose an additional limitdining is limited to 1 hour per customer!

In Pahang, all dining premises must follow requirements :

  • there must be 1 metre distance between tables
  • seating capacity is according to table size and 1 metre physical distance between customers
  • maximum dining time is 1 hour per customer
  • the dining in capacity of the premise must be stated at the premise entrance, and obeyed

 

Scan MySejahtera Every Hour While Dining In Pahang?

While sitting inside a cafe or restaurant for hours will increase your risk of getting infected with COVID-19, it seems impractical to have a standard 1 hour limit for dining premises.

After all, a 5-course dinner at a full service restaurant will definitely take longer than an hour, while a quick bite at a burger joint will last less than 30 minutes.

So unless they are basically asking restaurants to serve pre-cooked meals, we have no idea how the Pahang state government is going to enforce this rule.

However, scanning MySejahtera every hour is NOT going to work, because it will merely prove to the police that you have been inside the cafe or restaurant for more than an hour.

A quick check on MySejahtera will show the police just how many times you scanned MySejahtera at the same dining outlet, and therefore, how many hours you were there.

Therefore, the only thing you can do while in Pahang is to limit yourself to dining in at cafes and eateries that serve pre-cooked or quick meals, and avoid full-service restaurants that serve multiple-course meals.

The safest option is to order food to go – by drive-through or takeaway – or have it delivered to you.

It’s just not worth getting a RM 10,000 fine for dining in more than 1 hour in Pahang…

MySejahtera Now Shows Correct Vaccine Registration Dates!

It took them almost 2 weeks to fix the issue, but MySejahtera will now show you the correct vaccine registration and assessment dates!

 

MySejahtera Now Shows Correct Vaccine Registration Dates!

After initially showing the wrong registration dates for the COVID-19 vaccination program, MySejahtera will now show you the correct dates!

This will be a real relief for the public who has been thoroughly confused by the wrong dates, and suggestions that their registration did not go through.

Even though National Immunisation Programme Coordinating Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said that the first registration was already recorded, we all want to see it stated correctly in MySejahtera.

As you can now see in this comparison, the registration and assessment dates are now accurately reflected.

 

Haven’t Registered For Vaccine On MySejahtera?

If you have not registered for vaccine on MySejahtera, please do so ASAP! It’s very simple!

We also have a pictorial and video guide for you : How To Register For COVID-19 Vaccination On MySejahtera!

You can also register for vaccination online or by phone!

Online Registration : Malay | English

Phone Hotline : 1800-888-828

So get registered for your FREE vaccination, and be amongst the first to be free from COVID-19!

Note : Do NOT register again online or by phone, if you have already registered via MySejahtera.

 

Wrong MySejahtera Vaccine Registration Dates?

On 3 March 2021, MySejahtera started displaying a vaccination status page, but it only appeared for some people.

For everyone else, clicking on the Vaccine for [Your Name] link just leads them back to the registration process, instead of the status page.

They would have to go through the entire vaccination registration process again, before the status page would appear.

After they re-register for vaccination on MySejahtera, the Vaccine for [Your Name] link will then correctly show the vaccination status page.

There was also concern when users noticed that MySejahtera was showing a new registration date, instead of the original registration date.

 

No Need To Register Again For Vaccine On MySejahtera!

On 4 March 2021, the National Immunisation Programme Coordinating Minister Khairy Jamaluddin, said that MySejahtera is currently updating its vaccination registration record.

Missing Vaccination Status Page?

He assured everyone that all MySejahtera users should see the vaccination status page today.

If you still do not see the vaccination status page, you do NOT need to re-register for the vaccination programme.

Wrong Vaccination Registration Date?

He also said that those who re-registered and received a new date on their vaccination status page do not need to worry.

The appointment will be set according to the first registration date, not the new registration date.

MySejahtera : RM10K ~ RM50K Fine Can Be Appealed!

MySejahtera logging is MANDATORY, and the fine just increased to RM 10,000 for individuals and RM 50,000 for companies!

However, the government allows you to appeal for a lower fine, so make sure you do that!

Updated @ 2021-03-13 : Added RM50K fine for companies, and other updates.

Updated @ 2021-03-12 : Added details of increased RM10K fine for individuals.

Originally posted @ 2021-02-10

 

MySejahtera : Mandatory, Fine Now RM10K ~ RM50K!

MySejahtera logging has been mandatory since 10 February 2021, but most people still seem unaware of this.

You can still get fined if you registered with an alternate app like Selangkah, but not MySejahtera.

On 3 March 2021, the non-compliance fine was increased, from 11 March 2021 onwards to :

The massively increased fines will definitely be a problem for many people who don’t even earn that much in 4 months!

Look at this picture of a compound that a netizen received on the very first day the fine was increased!

Apparently, this person was fined for not registering with MySejahtera, even though he registered with a different app or the manual log book.

 

MySejahtera Fine Can Be Appealed

Malaysia Senior Minister of Defence Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob stated that the maximum fine of RM10,000 for individuals is only for “repeat and serious offenders”.

According to the Inspector General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador, the police officers do not have the power to reduce the fine. It is merely their duty to issue the compound.

However, those who receive the compound can appeal for a reduction in the fine at the nearest District Health Office.

So if you are caught not scanning the QR code using your MySejahtera app :

  • DO NOT ARGUE with the police officer.
  • Accept the compound from the police officer.
  • Head to the nearest District Health Office to appeal the fine.

Potential mitigating factors could include your economic status, a first-time offence, not owning a smartphone, poor or no Internet connectivity in that area.

DAP Selangor is also offering legal assistance, so you can give them a try too, if your appeal fails.

Recommended : Malaysia Announces COVID-19 Fines Of RM10K ~ RM100K!

 

MySejahtera : Mandatory Since Feb 2021, Fine Originally RM1K

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.

From Wednesday, 10 February 2021 onwards, 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.

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

The fine was originally set at RM 1,000 per person, per offence for those who failed to log their movements using MySejahtera.

The original 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.

How To Check If MySejahtera Vaccine Registration Successful!

After registering for your COVID-19 vaccine in MySejahtera, please CHECK to make sure the registration was successful!

 

How To Check If MySejahtera Vaccine Registration Successful!

After registering for COVID-19 vaccination in MySejahtera, don’t leave just yet!

Please follow these steps to CHECK if your registration was successful!

  1. Go back to the MySejahtera main screen, and tap on the COVID-19 Vaccination option again.

  1. In this screen, tap on the first option – Vaccine for [your name here] again.

  1. If you see this screen, then you have successfully registered for the COVID-19 vaccination program.

 

Check, But No Need To Register Again For Vaccination

On 3 March 2021, National Immunisation Programme Coordinating Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said that “there is no need to resubmit” the application.

He clarified this on 4 March 2021, stating that MySejahtera is currently updating its vaccination registration record.

So there is NO NEED to register for vaccination again, even if you do not see the vaccination status page above.

As long as you submitted your registration and saw this THANK YOU pop-up, you have successfully registered for the COVID-19 vaccination programme.

 

Earlier Reasons To Check + Confirm Your Registration

On 3 March 2021, MySejahtera started displaying a vaccination status page, but it only appeared for some people.

For everyone else, clicking on the Vaccine for [Your Name] link just leads them back to the registration process, instead of the status page.

They would have to go through the entire vaccination registration process again, before the status page would appear.

After they re-register for vaccination on MySejahtera, the Vaccine for [Your Name] link will then correctly show the vaccination status page.

Without accessing this status page, how will people find out when their first and second dose appointments will be?

There was also concern when users noticed that MySejahtera was showing a new registration date, instead of the original registration date.

Is WhatsApp Going To Charge For Picture Messages?

Is WhatsApp going to charge us to send and receive picture messages from 1 March onwards?

Find out what’s going on, and what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : WhatsApp Is Going To Charge For Picture Messages!

This viral claim is spreading like wildfire on WhatsApp, with people asking – is this true?

Please note: Starting from March 1st, all pictures of “good morning, good morning, happy weekend, etc.” will be charged, and it is a two-way charge (sending and receiving), please use text for greetings , Don’t use pictures! Thank you

请各位注意:从3月1日开始,凡是“问好“的早安丶上午好丶周未快乐等等的图片都要收费了,而且是双向收费(发与收),请各位问候要用文字,不要用图片!谢谢

Ambil perhatian: Bermula dari 1 Mac, semua gambar2 “selamat pagi, selamat berhujung minggu, dan sebagainya” akan dikenakan bayaran, dan ianya adalah bayaran dua-hala(hantar dan terima), tolong gunakan teks untuk ucapan. Jangan gunakan gambar2! Terima kasih.

 

No, WhatsApp Is NOT Going To Charge For Picture Messages!

Such viral messages have been circulating for years, often being modified to change the date or details. But the premise is always the same – WhatsApp will start charging us.

This latest version is most likely an attempt to stop people from sending all those irritating Good Morning and Happy Weekend messages.

The truth is – WhatsApp is NOT going to charge for sending or receiving picture messages.

In fact, it does not make sense for WhatsApp to charge us to use their free messaging service. Here are the reasons why…

Reason #1 : WhatsApp Needs To Stay Free

WhatsApp became big by providing a FREE messaging service, and that includes the ability to send and receive picture messages.

Even when they tried to monetise WhatsApp without charging users for messages, they were roundly criticised and many abandoned them for Telegram and Signal.

Charging for their free messaging service will merely trigger a massive exodus to alternative free messaging services like Telegram, Signal, WeChat, Line, KakaoTalk, etc.

Reason #2 : WhatsApp Needs Us As Their Product

WhatsApp will probably charge companies using their (still free) WhatsApp Business app, and introduce payment services to make money.

But they will always keep messaging free for end-users, because we are their “product”. WhatsApp needs a massive number of users to “sell” to businesses, including those on Facebook.

Our metadata is useful to advertisers on Facebook, and eventually, WhatsApp will likely charge businesses for the right to access their massive user base.

Ultimately, it does not make business sense for WhatsApp to charge end users like us.

Reason #3 : WhatsApp Does Not Have The Ability To Charge Us

Think about it for a second – did you ever give WhatsApp your credit card details? Or did they introduce any payment method?

If not, how on Earth are they ever going to charge you?

There is simply NO WAY for WhatsApp to charge us anything. Not until they ask for our credit card details, or introduce some kind of payment method.

Reason #4 : There Would Be Advanced Warning

Even if WhatsApp really wanted to charge for messaging, they cannot just start charging on-the-sly.

Remember the big hoohah over the change in privacy policy? It only happened because they had to tell people that they were changing it, and ask them to accept those changes.

So if it does come to pass that WhatsApp will start charging for messages, they will have to inform you in advanced and you will have the opportunity to switch to an alternative messaging service.

Maxis TV Is Here, But Is It Worth Subscribing?

Maxis TV promises to offer multiple OTT steaming services at a cheaper price.

Take a look at what Maxis TV actually offers, and find out if it’s really worth your money!

 

Maxis TV : Cheaper OTT Streaming Bundles?

What exactly is Maxis TV? Maxis calls it a “first of its kind video entertainment service”.

Let’s be clear – Maxis TV is not a video streaming service. In fact, Maxis doesn’t actually stream anything to anyone.

All Maxis TV really does is offer bundles of five existing OTT streaming services.

  • dimsum
  • iQIYI
  • MUBI
  • viu
  • WeTV iflix

While they call it “completely new in the market and cannot be found anywhere else”, that’s only true if you are too lazy to subscribe to those streaming services yourselves.

Their true value proposition is offering these OTT streaming services at cheaper prices, with a single payment point. That’s really it.

 

Maxis TV Bundles : Are They Worth It?

Maxis TV promises to offer flexible OTT bundle passes, which confusingly, are divided into three categories :

  • Single Pass (should really be called Limited Pass)
    – Daily with 3 GB data limit : RM 3
    – Weekly with 5 GB data limit : RM 5
    – Monthly with 10 GB data limit : RM 9.99
  • 2-OTT Bundle with Unlimited Data : RM 18 per month
  • Unlimited Bundle with Unlimited Data : RM 42 per month

We can quickly identify a few problems with the Maxis TV bundles…

Single Pass with Limited Data

Maxis should have kept things simple – charge by the day, week or month. But they had to complicate it by adding a data limit.

Their potential subscribers are going to have to figure out – how much data does this movie take up? Or that TV episode?

Why add this unnecessary limit? It seems intentionally designed to prevent binge-watching by people on a budget.

2-OTT Bundle

Maxis TV offers only five combinations for their 2-OTT Bundle.

You cannot, for example, choose dimsum and viu, or MUBI and dimsum, or MUBI and iQIYI.

This is partly because WeTV and iflix are much cheaper than viu.

Dimsum, WeTV, iflix Are FREE / Cheaper

You can actually watch dimsum, WeTV and iflix content for FREE.

You only need to pay for VIP access to certain “hot” content, or the ability to skip advertisements (WeTV and dimsum).

Only One Package Worth Considering

Unless you are looking to subscribe to multiple bundles, it is generally cheaper to subscribe directly :

  • dimsum VIP : RM 8.90 per month
  • MUBI : RM 15 per month, RM 120 per year
  • iQIYI Standard VIP : RM 8.90 per month
  • viu : RM 12.90 per month, RM 88 per year
  • WeTV VIP : RM 7.90 per month
  • iflix VIP : RM 3 per week

From our POV, the only Maxis TV bundle worth considering is the Unlimited Pass, which gives you access to all five OTT services. You will then save RM 13 per month.

Even that is assuming you plan to watch all five of them. If you only want to use 3-4 of those OTT services, it is cheaper to just subscribe directly.

 

Maxis TV : Free 1-Month Trial!

Maxis is now offering a free one-month trial for all new Maxis TV subscribers, even for non-Maxis customers.

So you can give it a try, or use it to get some free streaming for a month. Just make sure you discontinue it before the subscription kicks in automatically!

Scan MySejahtera At Petrol Station, Or Get Fined RM1K?

CPRC says it’s not mandatory, but PDRM says you can be fined RM1,000 for failing to register MySejahtera at the petrol station!

So which is it? After flip-flopping, they finally clarified their stance… hopefully, for the LAST TIME!

 

Register MySejahtera At Petrol Station, Or Get Fined RM1K?

According to PDRM, you must register MySejahtera at the petrol station, even if you do not enter the convenience store! Otherwise, you could be subject to a RM1,000 fine!

Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department deputy director DCP Datuk Mior Faridalathrash Wahid confirmed this, saying “If the people do not register or scan, how will the police trace them if there are Covid-19 cases in the area?

As petrol stations are high-traffic public spaces, it is mandatory to register your visit using MySejahtera, as well as wear a face mask have your temperature scanned, and use a hand sanitiser.

However, it appears that petrol station operators may not be aware of this requirement either, as they do not put up MySejahtera QR codes at their pumps for motorists to register their visits…

 

But Didn’t CPRC Say MySejahtera Not Necessary At Petrol Station?

This email shows the CPRC (Crisis Preparedness and Respose Centre) team saying that it is NOT necessary to register your visit using MySejahtera if you are merely refuelling at the pump or making payments.

Sadly, it appears that CPRC and PDRM are not on the same page. CPRC says it’s not necessary, but PDRM insists it is mandatory.

 

Latest MySejahtera SOP For Petrol Stations : To Scan Or Not?

On 10 November 2020, Malaysia’s Senior Minister for Security Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri, issued an updated SOP on the use of MySejahtera in petrol stations in this press conference.

Here is a summary of the updated MySejahtera SOP for petrol stations :

MUST Scan MySejahtera / Register Manually

  • Making payments or purchases inside the petrol station’s convenience store.
  • Using the ATM machines inside the petrol station’s convenience store.
  • Using the petrol station’s toilet or surau.
  • Sending your car to the petrol station’s workshop.
  • Sending you car for a manual car wash.

DO NOT Need To Scan MySejahtera / Register Manually

  • Self-serving at the pump, and paying using their credit or debit cards or online app.
  • Paying the cashier through the pigeonhole.
  • Self-inflating your own tyres.
  • Using the auto car wash, unless you are paying inside the petrol station’s convenience store.
Situation Scan MySejahtera or
Register Manually?
Making payments inside the petrol station store YES
Making purchases from the convenience store YES
Using the toilet or surau YES
Sending car to petrol station’s workshop YES
Sending car for manual car wash YES
Self-serving at pump, and
paying with credit / debit card / mobile app
NO
Paying cashier through pigeonhole NO
Inflating tyres with air NO
Driving car through auto car wash NO

 

MySejahtera : Why Use It At Petrol Station?

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.

Even though petrol pumps in Malaysia are generally self-served, petrol stations are high traffic public areas with pump attendants and employees, as well as other customers, who may be infected.

Registering your visit with MySejahtera at the petrol station will allow the authorities to quickly and accurately perform contact tracing if any infected person was at the petrol station.

That’s why they made it mandatory to register your visit with MySejahtera at the petrol station, even if you don’t enter the convenience store.

MySejahtera / Logbook : Register Or Get Fined RM1,000!

With the number of COVID-19 cases rising in Malaysia, here’s a timely reminder – register yourself at all public places using MySejahtera or the logbook, or get fined RM1,000!

 

MySejahtera / Logbook : Register Or Get Fined RM1,000!

Malaysia has so far weathered the COVID-19 pandemic with relatively few cases, thanks to a relative strict Movement Control Order, and a mandatory requirement to wear a face mask in public from 1 August 2020 onwards.

But with the surging number of new cases, the Malaysian government appears to be ramping up enforcement checks on businesses.

Malaysian netizens have shared videos and photos of recent enforcement checks, where those who did not register themselves either using the MySejahtera app or a logbook were fined RM1,000 per person!

 

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.

 

MySejahtera / Logbook : What’s The SOP?

On 4 October 2020, the Malaysia Ministry of Health issued another reminder on the mandatory registration SOP using MySejahtera or a logbook.

Please note that EVERY PERSON – including children and domestic helpers – must be registered. If they do not have a smartphone, they must register using the logbook.

Also, if you are registering yourself using the physical logbook, please write in your FULL NAME and telephone number. You can be fined if you write in only your first name.

Premise Owner

  • Make sure visitors undergo temperature screening and scan the QR code using MySejahtera
  • In the event you do not have a QR code, make sure visitors record their particulars in a logbook
  • Make sure visitors with symptoms or high risk status are not allowed into your premise

Members Of The Public

  • Make sure you perform temperature screening and scan the QR code using the MySejahtera app, or record your details in the logbook, every time you enter a premise.
  • Perform a risk analysis from time to time.

Those who fail to register themselves at public premises risk being fined RM1,000 per person, per offence.

The Malaysia Ministry of Health has proposed that this fine be increased to RM10,000. The proposal was submitted to the Malaysian Parliament in August 2020, but has yet to be approved.
