KUALA LUMPUR: Starting tomorrow, all travellers between Labuan and Sabah will be subject to immigration checks.

The director-general of immigration, Khairul Dzaimee Daud, said the checks were in line with the need to improve security and border control in Sabah.

The department currently conducts only random checks on the movement of visitors between Labuan and Sabah.

He said the home minister had instructed the department to implement stricter enforcement in line with the Sabah government’s request that immigration checks be carried out on visitors entering Sabah from Labuan.

Khairul said the immigration checks would be conducted at the Labuan international ferry terminal on those travelling to and from Labuan via the Jesselton Point and Tanjung Pagar jetties in Sabah.

“Travellers from Labuan entering Sabah via the Menumbok jetty will be checked at the Labuan RO-RO jetty and Labuan international ferry terminal, and at the Menumbok jetty for those travelling from Sabah to Labuan,” he said.

He added that visitors subject to a travel ban issued by Sabah authorities need to apply for a release letter for movement. However, several exemptions will be given, especially to citizens who reside in Labuan and commute to Sabah for work purposes. - FMT
