Online Desk : Malaysia will not allow migrants workers intend to enter the country in order to prevent imported Covid-19 cases, said Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

Those who went the home country during the Movement Control Order (MCO) couldn’t enter Malaysia yet.

The authorities have not given any clear indication about the foreign migrant workers whose visas have expired while they are on leave.

Taking the health issue of the countryman into consideration, Malaysia will not open its border to allow any foreign workers into the country.

Allowing the migrant workers into the country might increase the infection rate of Covid-19 in the country which will pose a danger for the people living in Malaysia.

Considering the situation, only a limited number of foreigners are allowed to enter Malaysia who have visa of residence, my second home, professional, maid, dependent, diplomatic, or have spouse or children in Malaysia.

There are many workers, who have Malaysian work permits, stranded in Bangladeshi and visas of some of them have already expired.

Md Shahidul Islam, Bangladesh’s Ambassador to Malaysia, raised the issue with Human Resources Minister of Malaysia Datuk Seri M Saravanan.

Saravanan said the Malaysian government will take the decision when time comes.
