The Gerak Malaysia application has been downloaded 1.3 million times, with over 600,000 requests for interstate travel permits received by the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) since Monday (midnight, May 4), said Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department (CID) director Datuk Huzir Mohamed.

He said the public could still log in to the app today (May 6) and advised them to provide their original address and that of their intended destination.

"Do this as soon as possible so police can plan appropriately to ensure a smooth travel for them from May 7 to May 10.

"For more details on the app and for interstate movement, the public can visit," he said in a statement yesterday, adding that those stranded and wanting to return to their hometowns should make their applications through the Gerak Malaysia app.

In addition, Huzir urged IOS users to register from May 7 onwards before embarking on their journey according to the stipulated schedules.

"Applications for interstate movement can also be made manually, whereby applicants need to download a form from the PDRM Facebook page or fill up the form at the nearest police station, through appointment, for approval," he said.

He said a press conference would be held today at 3pm at the Bukit Aman Theatrette on interstate movement.

On Sunday, over 1.2 million users had downloaded the Gerak Malaysia app, with 503,276 users applying for interstate travel permits since April 25.
