KUALA LUMPUR,Nov 16: The government is studying a proposal to allow interstate travel between green zones to other green zones in states under conditional movement control order (CMCO).

Senior Minister for Security Ismail Sabri Yaakob said an example was Langkawi and Sabak Bernam, which are both green zones but located in states under CMCO.

“So for example, (with this proposal) those from Sabak Bernam can go on vacation to Langkawi. But we must discuss the detailed SOPs.

“How are people coming from Sabak Bernam going to travel all the way to Langkawi? Maybe the police can issue them a letter, which proves that they are indeed coming from Sabak Bernam, not Klang, for example,” he said at a press conference today.

He said this was aimed at boosting domestic tourism, adding that another proposal was for the limit of three persons in a car to be relaxed for green zones.

However, he said the tourism, arts and culture ministry has been instructed to work with other relevant ministries and agencies to come up with a more detailed proposal.
