No Need to Scan MySejahtera App When Filling up Petrol

Individuals only need to scan the MySejahtera App when entering the shop, toilet and surau at petrol stations, says Petrol Dealers Association of Malaysia (PDAM).


Its president Datuk Khairul Annuar Abdul Aziz said the directive that was given to them was to only register details of patrons when they enter such locations.

He clarified that there was no need to do so when refuelling one’s vehicles.

“What we were told is that we have to have the QR code and temperature screening upon individuals entering the shops, toilet and surau.

“Beyond that, there is no need,” he said.

He said one of the petrol station owners has clarified and confirmed the matter with the Crisis Preparedness and Response Centre (CPRC).

“Another thing is that it is dangerous to be on your phone near the fuel pumps. So, for safety considerations, it is not practical to do that.

“For self-service machines and infrastructure, there is no need to scan the QR code,” he said.

An email written by the CPRC responding to an enquiry about the matter also clarified that individuals only need to scan the QR code when entering a premise.

“Brief encounters such as refilling oil at pump stations or when making payments do not require the MySejahtera app to be scanned,” the email read.

Bukit Aman CID deputy director Mior Faridalathrash Wahid had been quoted by several news outlets as saying that people were still required to scan the app even if they do not enter a petrol station’s convenience store.

This follows a viral audio clip of a man alleging that his father was fined RM1,000 because he did not register with the app while refuelling.
