Ferry passengers, especially tourists from outside Kedah who want to enter Langkawi Island will not be allowed to board the ferry if they don’t have an interstate approval letter.














According to a report from Astro Awani, Kota Setar District Police Chief, Assistant Commissioner Ahmad Shukri Mat Akhir, said that strict action needs to be taken decisively to curb the spread of Covid-19.

He also explained that starting today (13 January), ferry travel is only allowed through Kuala Kedah because the route through Kuala Perlis is closed due to the implementation of the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO)  in Kedah.

All local and foreign passengers must comply with standard operating procedures (SOP) such as registering with MySejahtera, wearing a facemask, checking body temperature, and using hand sanitisers.

However, it is understood that the ferry terminal’s movement to Langkawi has reduced and they only allow one trip to the island a day.

“Every movement needs to be justified with a letter. Many tourists who visit Langkawi are visitors from the outside.”

Ahmad Shukri also said that passengers who do not have a letter of permission will be compounded immediately.

Starting today (13 January), only one round trip from Kuala Kedah and Langkawi will operate for the next two weeks.

The ferry service to and from Langkawi Island to Kuala Perlis will be stopped during the Conditional Movement Control Order (PKPB) imposed in Kedah.
