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.

I expected stiffer penalty like banned, I broke the law 
I shall teach you how to avoid being BAN by IMI @Airport.
85% should be successful.

5% Failure due to the experience and mood of the exit  IMI Officer @Airport.
5% Failure to any changes of IMI policies
5% Failure due to the any "Quota" levied to your company for taking in Foreign Expats.

@Jeff, you are welcome, you deserve more and I'll send you some more soon. I owe you a bucket of KFC as well not just top up haha... I saw you mention KFC bucket in one of your posts. 

I'm still in Malaysia and still checking this thread often... hoping for good news. 

I hope I can manage to avoid ban when I resolve my overstay problem.

At this juncture, basically is overstay.
No worries, he can never be jailed bcuz of his age.

Go seek help from your Embassy, they know what to do.

I was not updated with any new rates.

These are the old rates (hic**)

 His passport is still active.
Must not let it expire nor lost  or there is an additional FINE.

Good morning @Jeff

I really appreciate all your effort to support those willing to exit the country the right way.

Here is my case;
1. Overstay will be 2 years today (10/10/2018)
2. Have valid passport and entry stamp
3. Came in on a student visa
4. Have plan ticket to depart within 7 days and flight will transit singapore 1 hour 45 minutes.
5. Reason for not leaving on time. School delayed releasing school fees deposit to enable me purchase tickets back home...not until l threatened to make police report and then complain to immigration department. Until the released part payment. I have all the evidence to proove...

Will l be arrested if l go to surrender this morning at the immigration office. Please l need your advice on this?

Normally  NO.. if have solid proof of having studied in Malaysia with  Student Pass..

But..
It would be prudent that you report in to your Embassy for further advice and current policies. Have the name of the consular & contact number in your hands for references.

Read this Memo carefully of another student pass case.
