My partner has been in Malaysia for over 10 years studying. He has been to Nigeria twice during that time. He has overstayed on his student visa.

Is there a new rule that states he is unable to return to his home country even though he does not wish to return to Malaysia? He has been advised that he would be arrested for 3 months prior to getting a flight. Please clarify this for me as he does not have a ban on his passport. 

Thanks.

Malaysia is keen for illegal immigrants to home fast. Do not listen to agents out to scare you to make moneys out from you. Go to your country embassy to get exit document and then SURRENDER to the Immigration Malaysia. 

Your partner is travelling on a UK passport or have got dual nationality?

He has advised that he would be arrested for 3months 
Surrender and there will be no JAIL term but can't say if been arrested on the streets. Can be 6 months jail or held in detention camps.

What is the meaning of the EXIT PASS?

He can buy an air ticket and then go straight to the airport to fly.
1. He will be detained at the airport.
2. He will be sent to detention camp.
3. He will be charged in Court of Law.
4. He will be fined RM10,000 (maximum).
5. He CAN be given 6 strokes of the CANE.
6. He CAN be JAILED for at least 6 months.
7. He CAN be BAN from entering Malaysian for 5 years.

He CAN choose for Voluntary Surrender or ALL OF THE ABOVE.
