The COVID-19 outbreak has impacted the Ministry of Interior in several ways including border closure and travel restrictions, restrictions of business activities, cessation of issuance of passports and visas, inability of some companies to promptly renew their expatriate quota positions, evacuation of foreigners and congestion in correctional centres.
Given the more focused COVID-19 related tasks that now have to be performed across its many agencies, the Ministry and its agencies are seeking for ways to ease the operations of businesses that they engage with and ensure the safety of inmates in correctional facilities through activities such as the completion of 3000 Maximum Capacity Custodial Centres and the introduction of revenue-generating and cost-saving technologies. All these will be implemented as the Ministry enhances the capacity of its agencies to assist in the maintenance of peace and order across the nation.
