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.

And is it true that I have to pay rm2000 at immigration??
2k for what? Do not use agents. DIY..
The 2k i refer to is the balance of medical bills if you go for extraction of docs.

I do not know how much the fines can be. It depends on many circumstances and the number of immigration offenses commited. However, some countries have prior arrangements with Malaysia Immigration Dept like the current Amnesty for Pinos and the 3+1 Surrender offer by the Immigration Dept.

Read carefully right from the start of this thread. It might provide some answers to your issues.

Best is contact your Embassy and seek advise. You need travel documents for your newborn.

@ afange

Reading backwards your amended postings, I found this

I don't understand malay so I trusted that they did the right thing until I went to get my son circumcised last month, thats when I found out

Why circumcised your son? For health or religious purpose or cultural purposes as practiced in the African Continent? You are a registered Muslim?. You mentioned that the father is a Christian? And you two is married? Where is your Marriage legally done? In Malaysia or elsewhere?

Okay thanks...
Circumcision in Malaysia is always associated with Islam religion.

One less problem at JPN or Immigration

Btw is your child birth registered at yours and his embassy? If yes, you should get travel docs for yr son easily. And perhaps even change sex status via yr embassy travel docs. Some countries are relax on this issue.

Hello @afangie

Since both your husband country and your's allow for dual nationality and Malaysia does not give citizenship by birth to foreigners not married to Malaysian, you have taken the right decision to go home with your family.

However, for future purpose and reference of your child's country of birth which is Malaysia, other documents apart from birth certificate u might need for your son in future might become cumbersome because that rm2000 you "might" escape now might have increased astronomically in future when your son requires it and hospital by then will insist on you paying and might even charge interest accrued by then thereby making your son's world in a standstill. 

Do the right thing by either getting all required documents from hospital with a promise to pay at a later time or ask politely to be let off the debt. This is something that might seem normal if you escape paying now but will not be fun when your family actually need it for the kid.

@jeff005 
circumcision as she rightly outlined is for health purpose and not just religion,though, I understand for Malays in Malaysia it is both religious and health reasons

@afangie

It's either the old art of pleading with the hospital or a concrete promise of paying at a future date, writing a letter to be addressed to whoever is in charge is one but you need to explain your circumstances to the hospital and see what your options are. They might not is a very high chance or they might is probably 0%

Another thing is to ask your family and husbands family back home to assist you and your spouse to clear the debt.  Air ticket back to Africa is worth more than that so it's either you tell your husband to use his air ticket or yours to pay the debt in case pleading doesn't help.

You have been answering all the questions asked. Thank you for your cooperation.

Events and dates of occurences is more clear.

Once your son's travel documents is collected and make sure all details is accurate. then both of you can go and surrender to the Immigration. Go only when your son's issues is solved (not the BC).

Forget about the BC. It is useless once you are back in Africa. The travel docs issued by the Embassy stating he is a male, is now is HIS identity. Never lose those docs. Once your Embassy have issued Travel docs, your son is already a citizen of Zambia. All you have to do is to re-register your your son's identity according to the laws of your country while back home.

Bon Voyage
Safe Journey

The answer to the "changing details" on the BC have been answered now.
For the other question, of which I have never answered, and if you still want the "my" answer you have to email me. Sometimes certain answers cannot be replied on public media. I do have a heavy responsibility as a register member on Lawyerment.

Thanks for the reminder. I am aware of the WHO "fatwa" on certain African countries in 2010.
