I am a 47 year old Malaysian who went to Cambodia to look for work because of constant harassment from high private and bank debts. This was 3 years ago. With no money or assets anymore, I gave up on life and did what I could to live day to day overseas. Now I am given an employment chance at Cambodia  which is what I want but:-

1. Have an expired Malaysian passport of 1 month ago.

2. Been declared a bankrupt by JIS (after online search) about 6 months ago.

What are my options? My wish is remain in Cambodia. What can I do to renew my passport as a bankrupt? I cannot afford the luxury of travel to Malaysia likewise.

Can I have an advise on how to renew a Malaysian passport overseas as a bankrupt? I have read before this requires approval of Jabatan Insolvensi Malaysia but I am not sure.

WEF from 01/01/2015

1. There is no renewal of passport. Every 5 year made new passport.
2. All new passport have a validity period of 5 years.
3. 01/01/2017 All new passports are equipped with new security features which may need renewal biometric finger printing.
4. Making of passport must be done at any Immigration Office. Current pic is taken at the counter/booth in the presence of the IO.
These are new rules pasted in the Immigration Lobby at Jalan Duta Kuala Lumpur.

Why the need of a valid passport in Cambodia? To apply work permit?
Your old expired passport now is useless in Cambodia. Cannot apply for anything. Moreover new passport will not show how and when you have entered Cambodia. You still have to show your old passport.
I am sure you are aware of overstaying and how they treat foreigners for overstaying there.
There is not much human rights to cry about while in detention camps in Thailand Cambodia Laos and Mynamar.

For latest information, just go the Malaysian Embassy and enquire.
There is no harm. No worries, no arrests, you are inside Diplomatic Enclave.
Maybe there are other ways the Embassy staff can help you?
