: The public needs to seek police permission before buying a flight ticket during the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO), Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said.
He stressed that any interstate activity by air or land route is not allowed unless permission is obtained from the police.
“Interstate travel in the Peninsula is not allowed unless there is police permission.
“Similarly, interstate travel from the peninsula to Sabah and Sarawak (and vice versa) are also not allowed unless with police permission.
"I would like to advise those who intend to travel interstate by air to seek permission from the police before buying a flight ticket," he told a media conference here on Tuesday.
He said those who had bought a ticket but did not have police permission would be barred from boarding the plane.
“At the roadblock near the airport, they will be directed to turn around by the police.
"In the end, they had to incur the loss for buying a ticket but did not get permission to fly interstate," he said.
For flights to Sabah and Sarawak with police approval, passengers will be screened as soon as they arrive at their respective state airports.
“Individuals diagnosed with COVID-19 will be sent to the hospital for treatment.
“If they are found to be negative, they are allowed to return home but have to undergo a mandatory 14-day quarantine at their homes.
"For those in Sarawak, they will be screened again on the 10th day of compulsory quarantine," he said.
