The travel approval permits can only be given by these ministries or agencies.
Starting from 8 June 2021, PDRM will only accept approval letters from six ministries and certain agencies for those who need to bypass roadblocks to travel to and from their workplace.
"The public is reminded to submit the documents issued by the ministries or agencies that have been listed when going through the roadblocks and those who fail to do so or found using a fake letter will be subject to stern action under the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988 (Act 342)," said, Inspector-General, Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah in a statement reported by The Edge.

Sani also said that letters must be dated from June 1 and those that were issued before that date will be rejected.
PDRM will only issue travel permits for self-employed individuals such as plumbers, traders and maintenance workers and those who would like to cross state or district borders for emergencies and deaths.
PDRM will also give one-off approval letters for non-essential workers that need to go to the office to carry out unavoidable company procedures such as payroll or to prepare documents. An employer’s letter must be prepared as proof and the approval letter will only last for a few days.
Hawkers, small-time traders or food trucks may use letters from their local councils, but operating licences for those in strata management, waste and sanitation will be issued by MITI.
Approval letters for legal firms with 20% workforce will be issued by the Prime Minister's Department's Legal Affairs Division through MITI and legal practitioners who need to attend court to represent their clients in new cases will need to produce printed documents or the legal firm's letter at roadblocks.
