PUTRAJAYA: Non-Muslims couples whose marriage registrations have been affected or delayed by the implementation of the movement control order (MCO) will have until July 31 to finalise their situation, said Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
He said the couples have until the end of July to resolve the matter without having to submit a new application and pay the fees required.
The National Registration Department (NRD) will provide standard operating procedures (SOPs) for marriage and divorce registration matters.
“The NRD will also allow the marriage registrations in 171 houses of worship (temples, churches or religious associations) approved by the Ministry of National Unity throughout the duration of the movement control order (MCO),” he said.
He was speaking at a press conference on the latest developments on the conditional movement control movement (CMCO) here today (June 7).
In the meantime, he said the SOPs on sports activities would be announced tomorrow. – Bernama
