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.

To answer your question:
You have entered via a eVisa 14th July but exited but 17th Aug. That is 4 days overstay. This overstay second time could be regarded as "2nd Offense" as have indicated in the IMI Chart for offenses.

I booked a flight to Lombok, unfortunately it happened during the time earthquake hits Lombok & Bali. That matter, I have already resolved with the immigration officer since I overstayed due to a valid reason (natural catastrophe); that was when I gotten format B. I ended up leaving to Jakarta and I did not overstay; I was there for around a week before coming back to Malaysia. Before my 30 days visit pass over; I went to Indonesia for a second time. Finally, I came back to Malaysia during my son's due date. ps. no overstay on any other country.

Thank you @jeff005 for answering my questions; providing valuable information and advice.

I would be surrendering soon as I know all the formalities, thanks to you old man.

 I have already resolved with the immigration officer 
It only resolved with that officer at that point of time. What you will be dealing with next will be desk IMI officers who may not care a damn of your excuses.

Even before you posted out the "format B" stamp, I already inform another guy that you should have been "Red Flag" already. She is surrendering next week. I highlighted everybody's issues and stamps because you all do not see other people's stamps. I have hundreds..!!

One just send me 2 days ago immediately once she/he got the "format B" stamp.



I believe they were making a  visa run
or will be consider as one by MY IMI.
They are out of the MY already. They have overstayed 1 day only. Overstay one day is overstay. They have been Red Flagged. Their re-entry would not be smooth.

Young man,
Just go home safely, write a good letter for the reasons for overstaying and you would be fine. All I can tell you is those desk job IMI Officers would be messed up with all those messy stamps in your passport. Result.. go detention camps to sort the mess with the camps wardens.

I am the most misunderstooded person under this section of IMI postings. People have accused me of being rude, a jerk.. many many more nicknames. I behave like a IMI officer intimidating people. If I cannot understand your stamps and you cannot answer me, what more can you explained to those experienced officers. If an overstayer tell me tales, stories or lies, nothing happens, but when being interrogated by IMI Public Prosecutors and if cannot answer properly, the bad result can be a Jail Term..!!

You have written in your first post
Quote :
took a taxi back to malasyia and when they stopped me on the checkpoint

The Thai IMI complex at Sadao is just 400 metres from MY IMI Complex at Changlun. Why need to get a taxi?  and they are no Thai taxis operable at the Thai side. These are all irrelevant excuses which causes more distrust on statements.

Just tell all the relevant details and truth of your overstay, things will be all right. Overstay is overstay.. no excuses even if you have a Malaysia child here. There are thousands of these types of "IMM 13" children here in Malaysia.

Guess that's ALL..
Good Luck Young Man..

Hi @jeff005
Need some urgent help as me and my child face some problem at the Woodlands checkpoint today. 
Went to the office due to overstay for one day as told by the imm officer. Was past midnight due to the bad jam. The officer told us to follow another officer and we were led to the side of the office. The officer told me that this is not the first time for us as previously I was also overstayed a day due to a miscalculation. He told me that is very serious cos is 2nd time and what they usually do and the normal procedure for this is to be compound for 24hr. And after that they take statement and I will still need to pay a very high amount of fine and will be ban for entry for at least a year. He told me that his boss earlier on can help me but I must know what to do.  Need to pay them 500 rm and they will help to get it clear for me. I was actually very shock as I asked if my child which is just 3yr old need to go thru this. He said yes.

Can I know how much fine will I need to pay and will they really lock me up for 24hr or longer since they mention ie very serious for repeat offence even if it's both just 1or 2 days.

I am now still in jb as they allow us to u turn back and rethink and consider.

 my concern and worry will be if I choose to just let them follow the normal procedure. Is it true that even my child which is so young will be compound as well.

This is highly irregular. No further comments.!!

He told me that is very serious cos is 2nd time 
Very true. This is what constitute "second offense" under Immigration laws.

this is to be compound for 24hr. 
Very true. RM30 per day overstay 

I will still need to pay a very high amount of fine and will be ban for entry for at least a year.

Lock you up with a 3 year old child for 1 or 2 days overstay? Only crazy Immigration Officers can and will do that..!!

Is it true that even my child which is so young will be compound as well.
Compound fines are levied as per passport irregardless of race, nationality, sex and age. Your child be also be BAN from entering Malaysia for a specific period of time even if the Mother is Malaysian. Please be cautious and careful of Immigration Laws.

I choose to just let them follow the normal procedure.
Nonsense..!!  This is IRREGULAR  procedures as mentioned above. 

Personal suggestion, at this moment 11am 14/10/2019, is it 1 day or 2 days overstay?

If it is 1 day, go now to the Airport and fly back to SG. IMI there may be more lenient if you can prove the "Traffic Jam" on a Sunday Evening. But there is a slight risk that if they do not allow you to exit, your 2 tickets will be in flames. If that is the case, go immediately JB IMI HQ and pay the 1 day fine (if any). Time is precious now. 

If it hits 2nd day, go to the IMI HQ in JB and pay the overstay fine of RM30 per day. There should be no BAN but you might be restricted to come in for 1-2 months for the repeated offense.

Go now before the IMI office close for the day to avoid any BAN.

There is still time to rectify any misgivings. It is your own fault no doubt.

Kindly do update if my advise works.
