Malaysia airport kiosks verify out-of-country travel eligibility
Malaysia's immigration department has installed kiosks at Kuala Lumpur International Airport to allow citizens to verify their eligibility to travel outside the country before checking in for flights, according to lowyatnet, a Malaysia news site. The kiosks will be installed in more airports in the near future.
If a traveler is ineligible to travel, the kiosk gives the reason. The traveler can then contact an agency to resolve the problem. The kiosks also inform travelers if they are holding expired passports and if the passport will expire in less than six months.
Mustafar Ali, director general of the department, said most travel bans are due to education loans, insolvency and revenue issues.
