Immigration Dept moves to manage congestion at country’s entry points

THE Immigration Department has activated its new Quick-Response Team (QRT) as a proactive measure to overcome congestion at the country’s entry points, particularly at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), klia2 and the Johor-Singapore Causeway.

Immigration Department director-general Khairul Dzaimee Daud said the move was implemented following Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim’s directive on January 30 for his department and the Customs Department to increase the number of officers on duty at the Sultan Iskandar Building and the Sultan Abu Bakar Complex to ease congestion at the causeway.
