The government today agreed to allow students who need to continue their studies or register as new students to travel abroad.

Senior Minister for Security Ismail Sabri Yaakob said they do not need to apply for approval from the immigration department, but must submit proof such as their student card and offer letter.

“Parents who want to send and accompany their children abroad are allowed, but they will be limited to two persons. They cannot bring their (whole) family like before.

“Upon their return, they are required to undergo the 14-day quarantine,” he said at a press conference in Putrajaya.

He also urged the public to fill up the e-Census form before Sept 30 to reduce the number of face-to-face interviews which will begin on Oct 7.

As of now, he said, only 1.5 million of some 32.7 million people had filled up the form through the www.mycensus.gov.my website.

“Following the Covid-19 pandemic, the government would like to urge the public to participate in the 2020 census through the e-Census which will expire in 15 days,” he said.

He said the government had set strict SOPs for census operations at private residences and institutions, including the requirement for census takers to wear face masks and observe physical distancing.

On a separate issue, he said the police arrested 132 people for flouting regulations under the recovery movement control order yesterday.

Forty-six illegal immigrants were also arrested.
