Visas required for North Korean from 6 March

Thursday, 2 March 2017

PUTRAJAYA: Visitors from North Korea to Malaysia will be required to apply for visas beginning 6 March 2017.

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the move was for security purposes after taking into account recent developments involving citizens of that country.

Meanwhile, Dr Ahmad Zahid, who is also Home Minister, said he was waiting to be briefed by the ministry’s legal adviser and the Attorney-General’s Chambers on the status of the North Korean chemist held over the death of Kim Jong-nam, the estranged brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

“We will know in the next few hours whether the man will be released or investigated under Immigration Act or be deported,” he said.

According to reports, North Korean Ri Jong-chol is expected to be released from police custody when his remand order expires Friday.
