My cousin's sister, a Singaporean, has overstayed in Malaysia for about 3-4 years. She is staying with her boyfriend in Malaysia and now they decide to part. Can anyone advise what are the penalty and her passport has expired too?

Personally, I hope you can delete the 5 years thingy. Educated illegal workers reading it will not surrender now. The maximum ban by immigration laws is 5 years.

If even surrender is 5 years, why need Amnesty and surrender?

That was the agreement with their respective embassies about the ban period for source countries workers.

The 3+1 is not only for foreign workers, but all ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS which includes tourist, students, social visit pass and employment pass.

I happen to know people under the aforementioned categories who are not from source countries that have taken advantage of the program and gone home safely and peacefully

These categories of people would have paid a fine of RM10/day for overstay not exceeding RM10000 before the voluntary surrender was implemented.

Please this is not about what the other country's immigration but FACT about a program implemented to allow illegal immigrants pay little and go back home. 

Of course a foreign worker (PATI) does not want 5 years ban because he/she is working but for other categories, many will gladly accept to go when they are informed of the voluntary surrender.

Because that saves you RM10000 fine and the rotan (whipping), whether educated or not.

Will immigration separate educated from non-educated? all to them are either overstayers or illegals

It's a fact!

Amnesty applies to certain countries only, surrender applies to all.

While as @jeff005 adumbrated, some countries get less time for re-entry.
For voluntary surrender from non-source countries; come back after 5 years.
