We’ve entered a new month under the MCO and while the decision as to whether another extension will be implemented after 9th June remains uncertain, Malaysians should take note of all the policies that will come into effect starting this month.
1. Starting 1st June, all Malaysians returning from abroad will have to pay 50% of their accommodation fees
Effective today, all citizens returning to Malaysia are to start paying 50% of the accommodation fees for the compulsory 14-day long quarantine. Foreign spouses or those with a permanent residency in Malaysia will have to bear the full cost, RM150 per day, themselves.
2. Applications for pre-school end on 15th June
If you’re looking for a pre-school to send your young toddler to, there’s still time to apply for the 2021 intake! Parents can choose to either register their kids online following this link by the Ministry of Education or register them at the schools themselves. However, do take note that the deadline for document submission is on 15th June.
3. Non-Muslim religious institutions can resume operations on 10th June
Note, this only applies to green zones! However, operation hours can only be limited to certain days of the week and a maximum of 30 people can attend a religious service at a time.
Children below the age of 12 and senior citizens over the age of 70 are not allowed to attend.
4. Indah Water will start charging RM2 for mailed water bills from July onwards
To increase efforts for environmental protection, Indah Water will start charging RM2 for each mailed water bill starting July. But don’t worry, you can exclude yourself from this charge by registering for your water bills to be sent to you via email or Indah Water’s mobile app. Those who haven’t registered can do so following this link.
5. All events held to celebrate the Agong’s birthday are to be postponed
In conjunction with the most recent extension of the CMCO, all birthday celebrations of the Head of State scheduled to take place between 3rd June and 11th June are to be postponed as the country is still in the midst of battling Covid-19.
6. Non-Muslim wedding ceremonies in religious institutions will be suspended until after 31st July
The National Unity Ministry announced that all non-Muslim wedding ceremonies that are arranged to be held in houses of worship will be postponed to 31st July until further notice.
7. Taxpayers have to file for income tax before 30th June
The original deadline for income tax (Form BE and Form M) was on 30th April. However, the deadline was extended to 30th June due to the implementation of the MCO.
