DHAKA: Foreigners coming into Malaysia need not fill up arrival cards issued by the Immigration Department starting June 1, the Home Ministry said in a statement.
Its secretary-general Tan Sri Mahmood Adam said the procedure was not required because the Immigration Department had already introduced the biometric recording system for every foreigner upon arrival, under the National Enforcement Registration System (Ners).
‘Through the Ners system introduced on June 1, 2011, the data of foreigners will be recorded and stored.’
‘The procedure will also fulfill the requirement of the Tourism Ministry to record data and number of tourist arrivals’, he said.
