Khalish ‘d4v41’ Rusyaidee, who plays for Southeast Asian team Paper Rex, has appealed to his Twitter followers for help because of a delay in securing the travel permit to leave Malaysia to compete at the upcoming VCT Masters event in Berlin.

The Malaysian player revealed on Wednesday that he is at risk of not attending the international tournament because of a delay in securing the necessary permission to leave the country.

Malaysia has banned all non-essential travel as part of the country’s response to the global health crisis, with citizens required to submit an application to the Malaysian immigration department before being allowed to leave the country.

“My travel pass has not been approved,” d4v41 wrote on Twitter. “I need your help to spread this and hope this reaches the right person.”

MP takes notice

His tweet has since been shared over 2,000 times, reaching Syed Saddiq, a Malaysian Member of Parliament and a former Minister of Youth and Sports. He has vowed to help put the player in touch with the National Sports Council to help solve the problem.

In an update posted on Thursday morning, d4v41 revealed that he is now hopeful of attending the VCT Masters as he is already “working with the right people to speed up the process”.
