The National Security Council has announced new updates to the movement and travel restrictions as of the 20th of August.
The 10-km limit in states that are in Phase 1 of the National Recovery Plan (NRP) has been removed. However, interdistrict and interstate travel is still not allowed. There are no changes in operating hours for transport-related services as well.
The following are the states in Phase 1 of the NRP where the 10-km limit on travel and movement is now removed:
- Kuala Lumpur
- Negeri Sembilan
The passenger-per-car limit has also been removed for those who are fully vaccinated. The number of passengers allowed for those who are fully vaccinated is now according to the seating capacity of the vehicle.
The passenger-per-car limit still applies to those who are not fully vaccinated. The restriction remains unchanged; two passengers per car for daily essentials and food supplies and three per car for vaccination appointments or medical attention.
The limit for taxis and e-hailing services remains unchanged as well. Only two are allowed per car, including the driver while the passenger is required to be in the back seat.
