Covid-19: Foreign nationals who violated SOP can be deported, says Immigration DG

PUTRAJAYA: The passes and immigration privileges of foreign nationals, who violated standard operating procedures (SOP) of the Covid-19 preventive measures, can be cancelled, says Immigration director-general Datuk Khairul Dzaimee Daud.

He said individuals found guilty would also be deported to their country of origin and blacklisted from re-entering the country, as provided in Section 8 and Section 9 of the Immigration Act 1959/63.

“In this regard, the Immigration Department advises all foreign nationals to abide by the current directives and regulations of government agencies regarding the Covid-19 pandemic prevention measures,” he said in a statement Thursday (Nov 18).

He said the issue of foreigners violating the Covid-19 SOP had recently spread on social media, in which some disgruntled individuals had even deliberately challenged the authorities to take action against them.

Last month, a foreign woman was denied entry to a boutique at a shopping mall after refusing to wear her face mask, while recently, the police said they have opened an investigation paper on the actions of two foreign women who did not wear face masks at a park. – Bernama
