In compliance with the Movement Control Order (MCO), Pangkor island will be closed for outsiders and tourists, today until March 31st to avoid the spread of COVID-19.

"To Pangkor Island, non-Islanders are not allowed. Since Saturday, the Marina Island jetty service has been closed, and only the jetty at Lumut can operate, which is for locals and relevant officials, "he said.

"We want to thank the resident for their support. Nevertheless, except in important and urgent situations, they are not encouraged to visit the mainland," he added.
