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.

You all have been cheated by faked agents.
There is no more E-kad.

Hi.. I am not running this forum, I am just an ordinary forumer.

A malaysian E card expired last year in Feb 2018
E-kad have been made obsoleted by 31/12/2017
i-KAD is validated wef 1.1.2018, it is FOC for those with valid employment pass issued by MY IMI.
i-KAD is the only recognized  id  card for legal foreign workers. The real card have biometrics imprints and the only card accepted by IMI, the Home Ministry and Police Dept. It is renewed and issued every year same dates as in the employment permit.

Sample of i-KAD



From what you have described above, you are likely to have the services of a faked Agent and do not have a valid employment pass.

The only way to retrieve your passport is to catch hold of this scammer, tied him up, and bring him/her to the police and lodge a cheating report.

The other way is to seek help from your Embassy for your next course of action.

Stop paying this faked agent, it is liken to throwing away your moneys into the drain.

This is the current rates for overstaying.

Above table shows 2,000RM from 6 months to 3 years, however I’ve read in some other thread on this forum that maximum cap of charge is 1,200 RM ?

How much is exactly payable for 6 months to 3 years?

TIA!

 I’ve read in some other thread on this forum that maximum cap of charge is 1,200 RM ? 
Can you make directions to that thread/link?
I have never seen such a post. Most of the  Overstay issues  in this IMI thread /section is under  my watch.

How much is exactly payable for 6 months to 3 years? 
It is stated clearly on the current rates applicable in the chart.
Only the IMI Officer that purview your case can give the exact amount. There is  no body inside this forum who can ever give you the exact amount, even from any MY IMI Officers who is in this forum.

The table above show  OVERSTAY COMPOUND  PENALTY  only.

Other FINES  can apply, for eg..
1.  No entry stamp in passport
2.  Lost of passport faked reports
3.  Could not determine the period of overstay
4.  Faked reasons for overstay
5.  Runaway worker
6.  Reports on crimes committed, rape, theft, molestation etc etc

Depending on when a traveler who came as a LEGAL  but overstay and became an  ILLEGAL,  the traveler must understand that when they first enter Malaysia, there are biometrics fingerprints (10) taken at entry point. For long long overstay special cases, the prints are cross matched to any  "crimes" committed inside Malaysia. Adding to new security controls, facial recognition is taken since 2017. Some of these procedures will be eliminated if the  Employer  comes forward to own up that they have a traveler have been working in their company at the material time.

There is never such a cap of RM 1,200
IMI Laws states that for overstay
1.  Max RM10,000 fines
2.  Jail Term of max 5 years
3.  Max 6 strokes of the  CANE.
4.  BAN from Malaysia for Indefinite Period
(Case to case Basis).

The only "CAP" of RM 300 was offered during the Amnesty Program  which ended 30/08/2018
