For those who don’t have a smartphone or internet access, you may fill up the forms that are available at the station. However, you must also make an appointment with them.

The police reiterated that interstate travel is only for those who are stuck at their hometowns or at other places to go back to their respective homes. As mentioned previously, balik kampung trips are not allowed.
