Nearly 3,000 foreign workers who have been vaccinated have been granted permission to travel to Little India and the Kelang Chirai area.
From the 30th of this month, foreign workers can travel to both locations for about eight hours each time.
The move comes as part of an effort to ease restrictions on vaccinated foreign workers, the ministry said in a statement yesterday.
The ministry added that it would further expand the community visit program for foreign workers and gradually relax restrictions on access to entertainment venues.
According to this, apart from going to Little India and Kelang Chirai areas, all vaccinated foreign workers are allowed to visit entertainment centers three times a week. There is no need to do an ART test in advance.
Foreign workers who have not been vaccinated are also allowed to visit entertainment centers three times a week.
But they have to confirm that there is no infection in the regular ‘ART’ test or show a negative result of the ‘ART’ test before going there.
Last month, 700 vaccinating staff were allowed to visit Little India for up to six hours each time. They did an ‘ART’ test before and after going there.
As a continuation of this initiative, the Ministry of Human Resources has now relaxed restrictions on several hundred more employees.
