My sister is getting married in Sydney this coming Sep 2017 and I would like to bring my dad who has bankrupt since year 2012, to attend the wedding ceremony.

He has reported himself to Insolvency Department on Oct 2016 and started to pay for monthly fee (has paid for 6 months). He is 70 years old this year. 

Is there a chance for me to bring him travel oversea with the reason of attending daughter's wedding ceremony? I will be his sponsor for this travel. Do I have to purchase the air ticket first (confirm the date of traveling) before applying? How is the process like?

Thank you.

Discuss with the Official Assignee first. Do not buy first.

@Jeff005,

How can I check my dad doesn't owe money to Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri Malaysia (LHDN)?
Thank you.

Check with LHDN. If Jabatan Insolvensi Malaysia (JIM) gives you permission to travel but at the airport immigration say Tax Department also bars him to travel, you go back to square two...

His chances are very high..

It will be less difficult task if your repayment record is good.

1. Submit your application form and you also need to declare your 6 months income.
2. Need to provide a Guarantor, Bond and  some Deposit (some amounts as repayment of debts)
3. Jabatan Insolvensi Malaysia (JIM) will issue a letter to Immigration Department and you need to go to the Immigration dept that will then you issue a Temporary Release Letter for you to carry with your Passport.
4. At the Airport immigration gate do not go to the automatic lane to check-in. Go to the manual lane to show the immigration officer your passport and the letter for them to stamp (chop) and eventually release you in for boarding.

Thanks a lot Jeff and Kiki. I will submit the application once my sister has confirmed the marriage registration date. Pray hard that it will be a smooth process. First time applying it.

So far, the repayment record is good. Pay on time and has paid for past 6 months.
When do we need to prepare for the deposits? Submit together with the application form or pay after it has been approved?

Thank you.

Prepare during the application process, you will be advised accordingly by Official Assignee (Jabatan Insolvensi Malaysia).
Only the guarantor's deposit will be returned back to the guarantor within one week you came home.

@sysy, hope it is not too late to reply you. Jabatan Insolvensi Malaysia (JIM) charged us RM3k for the 2 weeks travelling and RM1k as deposit. Thank you.
