I have a friend from Saudi Arabia who was here on a "90 days tour visa" which he overstayed for 2 days, went to immigration "Putrajaya" and got a ban for 2 years + 14 days to leave. But unfortunately, he overstayed that too for over 5 months now.

What are the possible things he could do? As far as I know "there are no excuses when it comes to that". Immigration gave him a chance to leave but he could not, and he is afraid to go to the immigration office again to confess about this issue.

Please advice, Thank you.

Thank you Teh0ais for answering my question.

Your answer brings another situation to my mind, what if he got arrested before going to the immigration? will that make his situation even worse?

what if he got arrested before going to the immigration? 
1. Held in a detention camp for a period of time.
2. Produced in Immigration Court.
3. For 5 months overstay, can be fined to a maximum of RM10,000 and/or JAIL plus whipping.
4. There is a ban period of 3-5 years. 

Surrender again is the best solution. Surrender does not commute with a jail term or whipping. The Immigration Malaysia may just levy a flat rated fine.
