Last April 16, 2016 I went to Malaysia and was given a 30 day social visit. I did not notice my return ticket was dated May 17, 2016. When I went home at KLIA2, the immigration officer told me that I overstayed 1 day and she said to me, "I will forgive you by now but for next time I will let you go to the immigration to file for an extension."

What bothers me most now that I will be coming back to Malaysia this Wednesday November 23, 2016. Will the immigration officer let me enter Malaysia? I'm so scared, need your help.

Did the immigration officer chop or stamp any remarks on the exit page last time or anywhere? Was there any penalty levied? If not, there should be NO issues.

By the way, you have overstayed 2 days. The immigration officer did not notice the date on the returned ticket (their error and your carelessness). Is it your first trip to Malaysia last time?

30 days inclusive of entry and exit.

Do be careful if you enter Thailand. Although the visa is stamped 30 days (standard), the exit day can be only 28 days from date of entry. It is handwritten on the chopped Visa Entry.

It was my 5th trip. I overlooked the date. I did not have any penalty. She only said its a warning don't do it again. She encircled the 30 in the stamp. Is it OK? Thanks for your concern @jeff005.

What do you mean by chop? Sorry, I don't have any idea about that. I overstayed a day only. Thanks again.

Left side is exit "Chop/stamp"
Right side is entry plus free visa stamp. 30 days
Note.. this is for entry to DMK ( Bangkok ) for international airport.
Border pass is only 14 days.

China visa entry is valid for 3 months (last time) but travel period is also 30 days.
China Visa is sticker form just like Malaysia Employment Visa. Cannot be removed.
When you enter Msia on 16 april, 30th day is on 15 May.
if you enter  on 16 May, your exit date is 14 June.
Travelers beware of this valid entry issue.

Which country are you from?
Thai, Laos and Cambodia borders sure charge you overstay.
Ask those farangs...

Hi @jeff005,

I have overstayed 1 day on my social visit pass. And the immigration officer said that "don't come to Malaysia anymore". Is it true that I am banned from coming to Malaysia? He stamped my exit page in my passport and marked something (the photo is attached). 
Please explain me what does the mark mean? By the way, I am Indonesian.

Need to see the whole picture. Include the entry stamp. Need to see dates.

I do not think you are banned How old are you? Male or female?

Female, now 29, that time 28.

I heard the officer said, "Please don't come again", I think he is a senior officer (looks like his age about 50), he said, that by seeing my passport, I already come to Malaysia several time, so I should already know that social visit pass is only 30 days. He took my finger print and face photo several times there.

That's my fault since I opened the Singapore tourist website, referring to it, I saw that by entering on 23 July I can go out by 22 August.

Here I attached the entry stamp.



Thanks Jeff005 for your response.

@ Happy

Could not see that doctor's writing there properly.

I opened the Singapore tourist website, referring to it, I saw that by entering on 23 July I can go out by 22 August.
July is 31 days so definitely is 1 day overstay. Spore may be using 1 calendar month. But you were in Malaysia. Careful if you go Thailand, i have been given 28 & 29 days before. There is an exit date specified there on the stamp.

The good news is that I do not see any BAN registered in your above passport stamp. Any ban would spell out the date the Malaysia Immigration Code for the offense committed. Check your old records. It could be the Flight Number you are going out.

There is a reason I asked for your age and sex. Many people actually do not answer it thinking I am being intrusive. I have the right what? The reason being is that for young ladies like your ages, the immigration officers are sometimes "overboard", they do assume that when you are staying at the maximum of 30 days, and coming to Malaysia frequently, you could be working here, same as a lot of China Dolls, now Vietnamese Chicks. I do support their security screenings as there are some who were made slaves here. If you can convince that you have good reasons to be here, they will not stop you from coming again.

Not knowing what is written there, I assume it is a code where when you come on your next trip, they may stamp NTL  (Not To Land). There are ways of avoiding this issue on your next trip. 
1.  Have your friends contact names, handphone numbers and addresses on hand
2.  Come with return ticket
3.  Never stay the full 30 days, vary between 24-28 days.
4.  Have enough funds to last the whole trip, but a sponsor letter from a friend, boyfriend or girlfriend, can do.
5.  Valid credit card (if any)

The immigration officer hinted..   "Please don't come again",

On the safe side, go thru Singapore, even if you are turned back, you just walk back to Singapore.

I think he is a senior officer (looks like his age about 50),
I am older and wiser. Ignore him. He is just trying to scare you only. Part of his job.

One of the reason he is harsh with you is..
1.  You came from Spore and hence no return ticket.
2.  You have overstay. Overstay is  overstay.
3.  You enter Malaysia via Border Crossing, hence should exit via same place.

Land Cross border crossing is no longer encouraged because there are two many loopholes to traffic humans. You can have lady bombers nowadays. I have studied a few "NTL" stamps, almost all have cross land borders and use by air for entry or exit  before (just personal views).

Do be careful of Immigration issues nowadays. They are extra strict. You are young.
