Inter-state travel in Malaysia, whether by road or by air, requires consent during this Conditional Movement Control Order period.
I’ve just accompanied a foreign client to the police station in Pulau Tikus (Note that only the Police Station in charge of the area where you reside will process this application), Penang, to assist in the application of a police permit for him to fly to KLIA from Penang. I must say, it was a pretty straightforward procedure. We obtained the consent within 30 minutes at no cost. Do ensure:
- A letter of application (ours was in Bahasa Malaysia to make it user friendly to the police) is furnished setting out the reason;
- Fill in the attached PKP form (It’s been translated from Bahasa into English to make it user friendly for our foreign friends).
