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.

Hi,

I am a German citizen (early 30s) and I overstayed my 3month tourist visa for currently 530 days. I have not have any contact to Immigrations in any way yet. I am aware that I am in trouble and I wrote to the German Embassy yesterday per email. But I will go to the Embassy Monday first thing in the Morning instead of waiting for an email answer from them.

I learned a lot about the topic by reading online about it last night and especially here in this forum. I understand that there are many people in similar situations. I plan to give updates as soon I have more information about what will happen to me.

Until, I would be thankful for any advice. I was also thinking of going to the bar council for pro-bono advice, but I will first talk to the embassy. Any thoughts on that?

Kind Regards,

a stupid german.

@ sandels

Germans are never stupid, one of the highest level of maturity community. There should be a personal reason which you do not want to specify.

but I will first talk to the embassy.
Correct move

going to the bar council for pro-bono advice
No need to waste your time there. They do not deal with overstaying as they do not have up to date lawyers performing pro bono services for Immigration offences. Their answer to you will be "Go to your Embassy to seek help".

For your case, your Embassy is sure to help you as there are hardly many Germans overstaying. They have the time and resources unlike some embassies here are swamped with 100s of thousands of over stayers. They may need 100s of Military Cargo Aircrafts to send all of them back. That is why most Embassies do not want to help their own citizens.

For your case 5 months overstay may warrant a BAN period of 3-5 years. Do not exceed 6 months if you can. After 6 months it is elevated to another category.

Thanks for your quick reply and your advice.

Actually in my case it is 530 days not 5 months. So almost 18 months. But I get your point.
I will see next week what the Embassy has to say. 
I would definitely consider myself lucky, if I get away with RM 2000 + RM 100 and a Ban.
We will see.

Thanks.

@sandels, best of luck to you. Please keep us updated on what happens. The fine and ban period. The immigration should be friendly to you. They have zero tolerance for major overstaying countries like Bangladesh, Nepal, Myanmar, etc... 100's of thousands of overstayers like Jeff mentioned. But countries where there's very little overstayers, you should get better help and better treatment. Keep us updated and again, good luck.

Hi jeff, thanks for your promot reply. Really appreciate it. Can I email you privately on the picture?
As for the reason, it was stated as unsupported which I was told there was issues that the uni have to settle first before they can approve the pass. I went 3 time to the imi kl office for biometric and the passport are with them now. 
When I ask my uni, they told me to wait. So should I wait? Because I already call and went to putrajaya imi office even to clarify but they ask me to refer to my uni. I am so confused and stress right know. I still have one sem to graduate. Do you think they will approve the pass or they will just ask me to go back to home country? So far, nobody mentioned about this to me either from imi or uni side. 

The college is Windfield International College

@ Mo314

As far as I am concerned this is just an ordinary college. It has no "uni" status yet. That is why they may have issues with Immigration Malaysia.



Are you very sure your passport is with Immigration KL? You are the one who have personally handed your passport? Do you have acknowledgement receipt (anything) direct from IMM?

You can email your student pass to me at

I was just on the phone with the German Embassy. They started to explain to me, that I broke Malaysian Law, and that I should go to Immigration. But they also said, that they don't know how to help. That I have to cooperate, but they would not be able to stop them, if they decide to detain me immediately.
And whether they decide to jail me on top of a fine is nothing the German Embassy would know how to help. He only said, that I better should enough money, maybe this would help.

I also asked if someone of them could join me, but he said that there presence would have no effect.
I also explained them that my overstay is caused secondarily by psychological reasons. That I basically run away from a PhD studentship overnight and fall into depression and anxiety that paralyzed me enough never until now to seek help.  Unfortunately it is the truth, but it also does not sound very convincing, as the embassy explained to me.

The embassy guy told me that he will hear around again and call me back tomorrow, But he did not sound promising.

Any advice?

Thanks.

Update on  "Romeo"

Perhaps some of you out there will be glad that he is back in the PH today and 

THERE IS NO BAN  on him.

He come into Malaysia under the  "ESD" have had given his passport to a non authorized  Agent to processed and hit into problems.

MAL IMI just fined him RM610 for overstaying and no BAN stamp because he came into Malaysia under "ESD" with a valid VDR. His ESD is still valid.

Hello Sir Jeff:

Taking the clues and  your advises at forum, finally at Home Ph 

Below are the stamp of my passport and doc from Putrajaya Immigration

I am very thankful to God, No chop of BLI/WM 

now I can settle my application here in Ph the soonest as possible since my ESD will

expire by December

Once my permit and working document is ready hopefully I will be back at Malaysia by December this year.

More Power to You Sir

Regards/Romeo





@  Romeo

Most important is that you are are back in the PH safely without any Jail Term or BAN.

Do teach fellow PH Citizens coming Malaysia the correct way to come in and how to make Expat Employment Pass properly. Pass your knowledge to help others. Thank you.

Best Wishes  to your future undertakings here. Malaysia is actually a Peaceful Country for Migrant Workers.
