Malaysians and foreigners can apply for entry and exit permits during the recovery movement control order (RMCO) until December 31. Applicants can find MyTravelPass on the Immigration Department website.
Duration of the approval process
For those who seek entry or exit of Malaysia, the approval process will take about five working days.
Immigration director-general Datuk Khairul Dzaimee Daud said, “Applicants must provide relevant supporting documents”. He added, “If a person needs to enter or leave Malaysia on the 10th day, MyTravelPass application must be submitted before the 5th day.”
Application categories on MyTravelPass
Available application categories that MyTravelPass allows submission involves a few. The categories are periodic commuting arrangement (PCA) pass, reciprocal green lane (RGL) pass. Besides, the system accepts spouse, children of Malaysian or permanent resident or residence pass. Also, it accepts dependent visa applications.
He said, other available categories include applications for foreign maids and temporary work visit passes. Besides, there are applications for expatriate entry and applications for foreigners under Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H).
However, local and foreigners who are in categories that are allowed to enter or leave the country directly do not have to use MyTravelPass, he said. He also added, “The permission to leave without prior notice or approval notice is still valid.”
He said that there will be a review and additional categories under MyTravelPass after RMCO ends on Dec 31. However, the review and changes will depend on the situation in the future.

Application status will be sent to the e-mail
Following that, he mentioned, applicants can check e-mail for application status, whether successful or otherwise. Authorities will prosecute anyone who submits false declarations, information or documents under the Immigration Act.
Application is easy, but there is no guarantee of approval, he emphasized.
During control movement control order (CMCO) last time, applicants carried out their applications via e-mail. Thus, he said, the department received complaints about delays with too many received e-mails. In fact, the department received more than 8,000 emails at any one time.
For information, the department’s Information Technology Division developed the MyTravelPass system. It is a government initiative to deliver an enhanced system.
