SINGAPORE, Feb 28 — The High Commission of Malaysia in Singapore has limited its consular services to 70 cases per day since yesterday (February 27) due to recent system limitations and manpower shortages.

It said the limitation is temporary and does not affect other services such as passport and visa applications as these services continue to be available with the usual procedures in place.

“We are in the process of upgrading our operations and processes as well as managing resources effectively, and will be introducing a systematic and streamlined approach for consular services in the very near future,” it said in a reply to Bernama, today.

The High Commission said despite the current limitations, the office is committed to continue providing consular services to the best of its abilities and further updates will be provided from time to time on its website and social media platforms.

“We appreciate all the understanding and patience during this transition period,” it said.
