State govt allows exemption for civil servants

20th March, 2020

KOTA KINABALU: In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the State Government has decided to allow certain groups of people that meet the set requirements to enter Sabah during the enforcement of the Movement Control Order from March 18-31.

State Secretary Datuk Safar Untong said, civil servants across the country will be allowed to enter Sabah for work reasons.

However, they must possess valid confirmation letters that are issued by their heads of departments for each specific task.

“The exemption of the Immigration Restriction Order also applies to private-sector employees entering Sabah to perform essential tasks subjected to the employer’s confirmation letter,” he said in a statement yesterday.

He also noted that Sabah Permanent Resident Pass holders (including their spouses and children) and Sabahans under work passes, student passes, long-term social visit passes or any exemption orders are also allowed to enter the state, subject to a 14-day quarantine and home self-isolation notice. –By Jason Jack Ebit
