An Israeli citizen entered Malaysia using a Saint Kitts and Nevis passport on Oct 15, Immigration Department director-general Khairul Dzaimee Daud said today.
Khairul said Nuseir Yassin, who goes by the name of Nas Daily, held dual citizenship for Israel and the Caribbean nation of Saint Kitts and Nevis.
"The individual entered and exited Malaysia using the same passport (Saint Kitts and Nevis) and is understood to have entered Singapore using an Israeli passport.
"He (the individual) did not have any offences under immigration regulations, therefore permission to enter (the country) on a tourist visa was given upon his arrival using a Saint Kitts and Nevis passport," he told reporters in Seremban.
Commenting on a TikTok video that had gone viral on Nas Daily entering the country, Khairul said: "Actually, he did not use an Israeli passport as if he did, he would not have been allowed to enter the country as Malaysia does not have diplomatic relations with Israel."
