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.

Wow.. Zambia has already approved the dual nationality law.. that's great.

6 months ago it was still under "debate" just like our "Unilateral Conversion" issue.

They approved it when they elected our new president last year. Atleast now parents don't have to chose, children can belong both sides

@ afangie

they say that if I go alone, I will get arrested.
Who said so? Embassy officials or friends?

There is no arrest if you surrender to Immigration. Or else what is the purpose of surrendering?
If by surrendering and the maximum ban is 5 years, be logical, who wants surrender?

You were on Student visa/pass. As one "mimo" have just posted, she had a 3 years ban. Even then i suspected that she has long everstayed and that there is even a possibility of a forged student visa/pass which was prevalent at that time.

As some people has taught, buy a ticket and then surrender, things does not work this way.
You have surrender to Immigration, leave the passport there for processing of an "exit pass". It may take 3 -7 working days depending on the country. For Nepals, the common trend is to give them 1 month exit pass duration, so that they can buy flight ticket home.

Why and how you bought tickets in advance? Your son's documents are out already?

You surrender to Immigration
They will hold your passport for processing, give you acknowledgement docs for current stay.
They will compute your fines. If you can pay on the spot, see if they can process your exit pass fast.
If not enough moneys, pay during collection of exit pass.

Will I get arrested if I go alone???
NO.. but it would good if you bring a local friend along for translation. The IO can speak in English but sometimes there can miscommunication issues. The forms may also be in Malay too. Do not use the agents there (if any). They may only need to write what is in your passport and then charge you RM50-200. You just sign only. 

I feel Immigration can be kind to Zambians but not Nigerians. Please do not say you are "Africans".

Personally I feel that there is a 30% that you may be able to get your exit pass by Friday.
You have to be really nice and polite talk to the IO's and make verbal appeal.
Bring your son's passport and exit documents as additional proof.
Just say something drastic like my mother is very sick. I need to bring grand child to see her.
Do find a logical "excuse".

Good Luck Dear..

Important NOTE :- Ask your Embassy Officials to which Immigration Dept you surrender to.
Putrajaya HQ or other pre-arranged ones. Get correct destinations or else you can spend 200-300 on just taxi fares alone from one Immigration station to the other, going round in circles.

Who said so?
What is the logic.

Go as soon as possible.
But it is best to go to Immigration Early in the morning. Say by 7am to avoid long queues.
Go 2pm and if there is numbering system, you may miss. Then spend taxi fares going again the next day.

@ Expressteam

That's two.. Q's..
Yes and "surrender".

Why need to come back asap? He does not miss his homeland?

China is very different now. 20 years, 15 years, 10 years, 5 years ago. Vast immigration changes over the other side. I visited Beijing one year ago. Which province is he from.? And his age now?

Married local Chinese with documents.
Can you elaborate with more details on the documents obtained and process
Any children from the marriage, if yes, age and sex of children.

The ban of 5 years is there. Is your purpose of posting here to find a way for reduction of ban period?

What is your relationship to this china man?

Hi, Jeff. Thx a lot for your input. 

From what I know is my friend has "settled" down in Malaysia. Almost everything is here, that's why he wanna come back asap. 

They registered in China and Malaysia with proper documents 15 years ago but no kids. 

Looks like the ban is for sure, lifting is not possible. 

Surrender to immigration means next 5 years no entry which is his big concern.

From what you advised in the previous posts, there is no better solution.

Thx again.

Yes for sure
But can appeal for shorter ban if marriage have been properly documented.
Of course if there is a child involved, chances is higher.
Got adopt "Godson".?
