KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) participants stranded abroad have been allowed to return to the country since May 14, following the easing of movement restrictions.
Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri said there were 253 MM2H participants and their dependents who had requested to return to Malaysia.
“While the government is concerned and shared the plight of the stranded MM2H participants abroad during the Movement Control Order (MCO), we hope they understand the challenges faced by the government in dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic.
“The government’s priority is to protect the people, including the MM2H community from Covid-19, as well as secure Malaysia’s borders from the virus,” she said in a statement today.
Nancy said all returning MM2H members must comply with the MCO requirements, which include undergoing a medical screening at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, observe a 14-day mandatory quarantine, and bear the accommodation cost at the respective quarantine stations.
