Peninsular Malaysia CMCO : Interstate Travel SOP

The Royal Malaysia Police recently issued the SOP for cross-state travel during the CMCO / PKPB lockdown in KL, Selangor and Putrajaya.

As announced by the Senior Minister (Security) and Defence Minister, Dato Sri Ismail Yaakob, there are FOUR (4) categories of travellers that will be permitted to undertake interstate travel.

  1. Residents of CMCO areas who need to travel to other states for emergency reasons (medical treatments and funerals) only
  2. Travellers who need to cross the CMCO areas for emergency reasons.
  3. Outstation travellers who wish to enter the CMCO areas for emergency reasons.
  4. Individuals who wish to access air transportation at KLIA, KLIA 2 and Subang Airport.

Travellers in those four categories need to fill in this form for the CMCO / PKPB Travel Permit (Permit Pergerakan Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan Bersyarat) :

After filling the form, travellers must submit it to the nearest police station for their approval, BEFORE they begin their journey.
