No more passport-free visits

PUTRAJAYA: Malaysians who want to travel to Wang Prachan in Thailand have to bring their passports, unless they are residents of Kedah, Perak, Perlis and Kelantan.

Home Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Radzi Sheikh Ahmad said the passport-free weekend visits by Malaysians to Wang Prachan and Thais to Wang Kelian had been scrapped since Jan 1.

The move allowed the authorities to monitor the movement of people as free cross-border movement was no longer “feasible in present scenario,” he said.

“For those residing in the four states bordering Thailand, we will issue them with border passes and they have to have their thumbprints recorded for future reference,” he told a press conference yesterday.

On another matter Radzi said the issue of Indonesian workers would be discussed during Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono’s visit here beginning tomorrow.
