This means that a foreigner entering Malaysia would have to fork out RM4,700; RM2,600 for fixed operation cost and RM2,100 being the lodging cost.

He said that though the government had already made full payment mandatory previously, the order was only enforced on foreign seafarers.

"Beginning today, Sept 24, 2020, all non-citizens who enter from all international entries of the country, will have to pay this full charge.

“For Malaysian citizens, the government has decided to maintain the quarantine subsidy,” Mr Ismail, who is also defence minister, said.

He added that for the second and third individuals who share a room with the first individual, the lodging cost would be half; RM700, while for children under six years of age, the cost of accommodation is free. MALAY MAIL
