Attention to those who have Overstay in Malaysia

Surrender to Immigration is the ONLY Solution:

1. Bring the passport that you have used to come into Malaysia.

2. For those who have "lost" their passport, go get new Temporary Passport from your Embassy in Malaysia.

3. For "lost" passports and unable to proof with documents the actual date of entry into Malaysia, be prepared for higher fines and longer ban period of re-entry.

Go to your Embassy

overstayed for more than 3 years
Surrender to Malaysian Immigration at the above address

Do not let the passport expired. You are already in trouble, Expired passport is BIGGER trouble.

Do not listen to stupid agents who teach you to report LOSS of passport or says Agents Cheated you and ran away with your passport.

You are more safe with a valid passport albeit with expired visa and overstayed.

Thanks for your answer and it will help me a lot.

May I know how much fine do I have to pay in the immigration for overstaying if I surrender? And I already called my embassy, they ask me to go there and take a schedule for applying a special pass that will be given by the immigration and it cost RM400 but I don't know how much in immigration because they said I needed to be interviewed first.

Just follow the instructions given by your Embassy.

Please post here on how much penalties you are paying and for what you are paying for.

I appreciate a copy of the "stamp" on your passport as I have been told that the immigration have updated some of their operating systems (Procedures as well as computer system) with effective from 1st January 2017.

RM400? You should be from Bangladesh right? There are authorized agents at the Embassy to help you.

DO NOT USE OUTSIDE AGENTS!

Thank You!

I'm from Philippines. They said RM400 is only for taking a schedule from the Malaysian Immigration. They will give a letter coming from our embassy to process a special pass.
And they told me about an approval amnesty but I didn't understand.

There is an amnesty on for THE PHILIPPINES? Go for it FAST NOW!

It also means the penalties is very very low. May not be more than RM800.

Please update me. I do appreciate it. Can you send a copy of the schedule and any docs to my email. It can be used to help other Pinos in Malaysia.

OK sir. I will send you once I have it.

So it means if the immigration approved for the amnesty, I won't pay more than RM1,000? Even overstayed for 3 years without permit?

Yes, Yes, Yes...

Normal penalty is RM30 per day overstay with a max of RM 10,000.

When there is an "AMNESTY", there is a standard rate which is approved by the 2 governments. Very, very low. For overstayers, if you cannot pay then a jail term is levied (for non amnesty).

So the Amnesty is to help your countrymen out of this predicament. Of course, you have to pay a little bit la.. The BAN period is also reduced to a minimum.

For the Indonesians when Jokowi came to Malaysia, an amnesty was announced the next month later. They have paid around RM800 at that time (maybe increased now). The BAN was only 6 months.

If you use agents, they will cheat you, scare you by saying you need to pay more "undercounter, under table", all lies. Sometimes agents ask for your passport and blackmail you RM2,000 - 3,000 to get it back. The rates is agreed upon by the two Governments and Immigration.
