Immigration offices in the state, including in Kuching, will begin to re-open in stages starting May 4.
The Borneo Post reported that the Immigration department will first open their Security and Passport Section on May 4, before other sections will follow on May 6.
The sections opening on May 6 are the Visa, Pass and Permit Section, Expatriate Services and Foreign Workers Section.
“The Operations, Investigation and Prosecution Section will re-open on May 13 while the passport counters at all Urban Transformation Centres (UTCs) are subject to the Ministry of Finance’s decision,” said a statement by the Sarawak Immigration Department.
The statement further pointed out that the re-opening of the Immigration Department’s offices in Sarawak was different from the ones in Peninsular Malaysia, taking into consideration the regulations enforced by the state government.
Those with inquiries regarding the Immigration Office’s reopening, can call the Sarawak Immigration Department at +6082-429437 or their Corporate Communications Officer at +6082-246267.
