Buses From Thailand Need To Apply Permit From APAD First – Anthony Loke

KOTA BHARU: Buses from Thailand are allowed to enter Malaysia, but they need to apply for a permit from the Land Public Transport Agency (APAD) first, and a temporary permit will be issued to the applicant.

Transport Minister Anthony Loke Siew Fook said, however, that the bus company must submit complete information, such as the tour package taken, the number of passengers, and the accommodation location.

“This regulation applies to all states, including Kuala Lumpur, not just border states like Kedah and Kelantan.

“This matter has been decided through recent meetings; the only ones we are restricting are vans from Thailand because we fear they might enter Malaysia and pick up passengers in this country,” he said.

He said this to reporters after the Opening Ceremony of Phase 1 Operation of the Sultan Ismail Petra Airport Expansion and Upgrading Project here today, which was also attended by the Chairman of the State Committee on Works, Infrastructure, Water, and Rural Development, Datuk Dr. Izani Husin.

The media previously reported that the Kelantan state government had requested a relaxation of permits for tourist buses from Thailand from the Ministry of Transport for the entry of these vehicles into the state in conjunction with Visit Kelantan Year 2024.
