Interstate + Inter-District Travel : Forbidden Nationwide

Ever since 13 January 2021, interstate and inter-district travel are FORBIDDEN in MCO areas. In CMCO areas, interstate travel is forbidden, but inter-district travel is allowed.

But when the 10 km travel limit was lifted, MKN announced that inter-district and interstate travel are FORBIDDEN  nationwide.

Ever since the inter-district travel was forbidden in Malaysia, people have wondered – how do you define the districts?

Unfortunately, the lack of a proper definition has led to some confusion – is Penang island a single district? Do we follow police districts or state districts?

This anecdotal example, that is being shared on social media, claims that the police are issuing fines based on police districts, instead of state districts.

Apparently daerah in PKP mean ikut Daerah IPD polis.

Daughter came back from Subang Jaya to Bukit Jelutong kena saman merentasi Daerah katanya because of different IPD . As far as i know Daerah in Selangor ada 9 je..and Subang Jaya and Shah Alam is under Daerah Petaling. Called IPD Shah Alam to clarify yes they said kena saman because different Ibu Pejabat Polis Daerah Jurisdiction.

Called MKN asking where is the SOP definition regarding Daerah.. Officer cannot answer but affirm Subang Jaya and Shah Alam under 1 daerah. Confused ask to refer to Polis… Polis ask to refer to MKN.. Polis officer confused MKN also confused.

Apparently Polis issue compound on behalf of Pejabat Kesihatan because under Akta Kesihatan..kompaun have to pay to Pejabat kesihatan in Kelana Jaya..so ask them kena mintak permit or not to go to Kelana Jaya pay kompoun..because different IPD ..no need pulak.

Lastly called Pejabat Kesihatan they also confused why kena saman because same Daerah..lastly kena buat surat rayuan pembatalan kompaun. wasted whole morning making phone calls to get definition of Daerah. No Definite answer. Semua confused.

Adoi Malaysia..land of the Confused Civil Servant and Politicians

 

Travel Restriction : MKN Clarifies Definition Of District!

After weeks of uncertainty, the Malaysia National Security Council (MKN) finally clarified their definition of district for the inter-district travel ban.

On 20 February 2021, they released an updated MCO SOP, which included this definition of district.

  • the entire federal territory of KL is considered as a single district
  • the district borders are as defined by the states

In other words, you can travel without restrictions throughout the entire Kuala Lumpur, and districts as defined by the states, not the police.
