KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): A total of 583 applications for inter-state travel via air at the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport police station in Subang here were rejected from April 30 until Friday (May 8).
Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Fakhrudin Abdul Hamid said this was because the applications were found to be unjustified and illogical, and the travel documents submitted were either not valid or incomplete.
He said the applications approved were only for those attending the funerals of close family members such as their own partners, children, parents or siblings; emergencies; and long-distance married couples.
“All the applications must be approved by the police through an inter-state travel permit prior to making any bookings or the purchase of flight tickets.
“The Petaling Jaya police reminds the public that showing proof that a flight ticket has been purchased is not a strong reason to secure an inter-state travel permit,” he said in a statement Friday.
