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.

Do they need to jump down from building to run from raiding IMI parties?

I've been reading through the pages, too much useful information. I skipped somethings that are specific cases but overall I read more than 70% of the entire thread. What are the NTLs by the way? I can't find them. I am not very familiar with this forum. 

Yes sir, I still have my passport, never giving it to anybody. It still have the social pass and everything. It's an expired passport (early 2018) but it's still intact and has my entry date and everything. I entered on May 17th 2016 as a tourist. 

So having my passport on me, with the entry stamp, and with an embassy willing to help since it's not flooded with request like Indonesia, Philippines, Bangladesh, Nepal, Myanmar, India, Pakistan, etc..

I should have a possible "Get Out of Jail" free stamp... So my situation is not helpless. 

Still I ask you to read backwards again, then you will understand better what I will write tomorrow. 
Eager to hear what you wanted to say... 

I appreciate your help very much, you've given me hope so far and great advice in a situation where I thought I will end up jailed for sure. Your help is priceless @Jeff... Now I am starting to see there could be light at the end of the tunnel if I follow your advice. I've read a lot of the cases you helped that were as desperate as me. 

I feel bad for the illegals from those countries Indonesia, Philippines, Bangladesh, Nepal, Myanmar, India, Pakistan, etc.. where embassies can be reluctant to help... But I also feel lucky at the same time for being from a country where there's not too many overstayers, so I should be able to get better help and support.

All you need to do is to walk to your embassy. Tell them your situation! I have witnessed some that stays illegal for 5years and so on. Go to your embassy they’ll tell you what to do and how to exit the country. 

You’re not the only one in this kind of situation so GO TO YOUR EMBASSY NOW. Just please don’t walk by yourself to IMI because that’s a straight arrest and detention.

Okay you from SA cool. All you need to do is go to your embassy. They should have a way to exit u. Most people came to Malaysia with tourist visa and abused it by overstaying which warrants jail term+Ban but this is not a new case. Go to your embassy and complain to then at their embassy in KL.

They should tell u if you need to make use of that your expired passport or you need to go make a police report depends on what they offer. Remember no matter how you still going to have the 5yrs ban.

Stop wasting your time and go to your embassy.

So People have also advised you to go to your Embassy, any more issues? You still have some doubts in your mind? Not a simple mind.. that is very good.

Let me clear your mind. Please remember when you are back, teach your friends and countrymen in Public Media, chats groups what you have learn from Lawyerment... okay?

Learn this word...  "Batch Repatriation ". This is the answer to what you have asked earlier.

This OPS 3 cannot go on indefinitely and even if it does never stop until Malaysia is 100% free or illegal workers, wouldn't it help that at some point they give opportunity for workers that are now scared of the wrath of immigration to come forward and surrender to go home? 

I have asked those who had took my advise to go to the Embassy and update me on what had happened during that time at their Embassy. You could have missed their critical updates.

For Overstaying ( now is classified as overstaying surrender not amnesty surrender  ), the Embassy will have have to arrange in Groups  may get a 3 Tonne Lorry or even a 20 footer container to send all there at the same time. The Embassy officers will prepare all the necessary docs as not all have the same issues and like teachers, have to accompany them to IMI HQ..  Appointment dates are secured. Not going in and out of IMI like their grandpas' properties. Embassy will issued docs to enable you still be inside Malaysia (but do not work or walk around). During these periods, it may take longer time because of the crowd.

Go...  Good Luck, hope you would come back to update me on the current docs used so that I can help future overstayers. Thank You.

I very much appreciate all your help @Jeff. 
Yes sir, I will post here when I have the issue resolved and write about the experience hopefully from home soon.

Just one last question if that's okay. I want to be prepared financially, how much do you think I should set aside for a fine? I know it's very hard to tell, if you had to guess how much would you say?
