Apparently, you’ll still need to check in your MySejahtera even though you are staying at an Airbnb.
Recently, a TikTok user @ikaarejab has shared how she and her family got fined for not checking in their MySejahtera at their Airbnb stay.
According to Ika, she booked an Airbnb stay in Batu Ferringhi, Penang during Christmas to spend the holiday with her family there.
However, they were surprised that the police had paid them a visit during the night.
“We heard the doorbell ring at 12am and thought that it was Santa Claus, but it turns out that it was the police.” she wrote at the caption of the video.
The group of policemen, along with some Ministry of Health (KKM) officers who were on patrol came knocking on their doors and started checking everything.
It was then they authorities discovered that Ika and her family did not check in on MySejahtera at the homestay and were given “love letters” from the authorities.
All of her family members were issued a fine of RM1,000 and it totals at RM4,000 as there were 4 of them.
Meanwhile, Ika explained that there was only 1 Mysejahtera check-in point that was at the first gate and they did not notice the QR code there as they had gone in through the side door.
After experiencing this, Ika reminds everyone to check in their MySejahtera when going to homestays or Airbnbs.
With this, it’s better to check if there’s a need to check in MySejahtera at every location you are about to enter.
