PETALING JAYA - Malaysians in Singapore are allowed to return to Malaysia to attend the funerals of their respective immediate family members without having to undergo the mandatory 14-day quarantine period as it is considered an emergency.

Those who return are allowed to be at the burial ceremony only for a maximum of three hours and they have to be clad in full personal protective equipment, Malaysia's Senior Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob said on Tuesday.

Whether or not they would be subjected to quarantine upon their return to Singapore is the prerogative of Singapore's authorities, he added.

"It's up to Singapore itself when they return," he said.

Previously, the Malaysian High Commission in Singapore was reported as saying that it was ready to assist a Malaysian woman bus captain who had made a heartfelt plea to return home for her husband's funeral in a viral clip.
