What is surprising is that expats with employment passes are still being refused entry. The government has opened up most businesses and these expats usually occupy management positions in some of them or have valued technical skills, so we cannot understand the logic of continuing to keep them out of Malaysia. I am also receiving emails from distressed dependents of working expats; these are students studying overseas whose schools have closed but they cannot return to theirparents in Malaysia. Is this a signal that the expat workforce is no longer valued? Now these same people who thought Malaysia really valued them, and made this country their home, are being banned from entering.
