This is a great forum and would like to say, I spent many hours reading the forum's Q&A  on immigration that may relate to my situation.  If possible I would like any additional info and suggestions for the following comments.

I am a retired USA citizen and on 17Nov2017 returning to Penang I was denied entry into Malaysia at the airport. Previously visited Malaysia as a tourist with 2 legal exits in the past 6 months.  After questions and reviewing my passport for 5 minutes the Penang's immigration officer/supervisor said, "I stayed too long in Malaysia and I had to go home"  So within the hour they put me on a return flight (airplane) back to Medan, Indonesia.

My question is, in my passport they stamped, Im 96 (C) P/LTA /bertarikh 17Nov2017. What does this mean? and from who-how can I get the stamp removed from my passport? 

I plan to return to Malaysia soon as a tourist and would like to know if I'm going to have any problems entering Malaysia. 

Thanks for your help.

@ Jeff005,

Thanks for all your great information.

Q&A:
Did someone complained that any Immigration Department has lots of "chapbarang" officers?
Answer: At the JB crossings, no one complained about any other Immigration officers and how they conducted their business. They primarily concentrated on my situation and how to move forward. And, important note to know, at the JB border crossing I was questioned by 2 different levels of immigration before reaching the final decision-making group.

Q&A:
Was the reasons given by them (immigration officers) similar to what I have given you earlier?
Answer: Yes, your previous advice to me was 100% correct. In addition, the verbiage they (JB) used to describe my Im 96 (C) passport stamp was “BANNED” and did not suggest for how long.  Another source I used for advice about my situation while in Singapore was from a visit to the Malaysian High Commission (immigration area) and they said, “for future visits to Malaysia it’s up to the immigration officer at the entry point to allow entry or suggest a time period to reenter.”

Question:
I am presently in Penang and would like to know if there is an Immigration nearby to apply for my LTSVP? Or should I go to KL to apply and where? Any suggestions would be helpful and thanks for your support.

Happy New Year, and from all my fishing days I never landed a Mermaid, I hear they are out of season now. How about a Grouper instead?

"chapbarang"  officers?
Sorry.. it is meant for the Malaysian readers. Loose translation = goods of any brand.
Personal lingo referring to inefficient officers.

LTSVP (Long Term Social Visit Pass)
All major cities in Malaysia have its own state Immigration HQ and additional Immigration processing centers.

The Penang HQ is on the Island near the Jetty (30 years ago). Google for latest address.

@jdutch

You have to apply for a Multiple  Entry LTSVP if you want to travel, fishing around Asian countries using Malaysia as a transit point.

Do remember well..

Envy you.. drifting on the high seas, BBQing the different types of fishes you personally landed on board. What an exotic way for retirement! My favorite is Fish Maw Thai style. Now my mouth is watering at the very thoughts!

Im 96 (C) P/LTA 

Normally, how long will it take before anyone can re-enter Malaysia after getting such stamp?

Your friend will not get this stamp on her passport.

Her stamp will be BLI a BAN of 5 years.
BLI = Blacklist Imigration

I am a Singaporean who frequent Johor Bahru via car  I have the same stamp "Im 96 (C) P/LTA/ Bertarikh with a serial number written" at the last page of my passport dated 02 Jun 2018. Will I still be allowed to enter Johor Bahru via causeway by land since I was given NTL in Penang?

Any serious immigration infringements stamps on the Last Page is permanent in nature for all the immigration counters throughout the whole world to read and be notified.

Normal NTL stamp is at / with the last "exit" stamp but never at the last page!

Thanks for taking time out to answer. But I do have further questions and do hope your enlightenment.

1) Does that mean that with the stamp,  it will affect my entry into other countries besides Malaysia?

2) Is there a way to find out what infringement and is there any way to appeal or remove that? Or is there a validity to the NTL?

3) What will happen if I try to travel to JB with the stamp?

Kindly advice. Thanks a lot in advance.

1. Post a schedule of the last 5 trips into Malaysia and or other countries whether by air or by Border Crossing.
2. Post a picture of the last stamp of at the last page here.
3. Post a picture of the last "exit" stamp (Penang) by air here.
4. Any altercations with immigration officers at Penang Airport?

With all the above info, there might be a clue on why it was stamped on the last page of the passport.

1. Post a schedule of the last 5 trips into Malaysia and or other countries whether by air or by Border Crossing.

Last 5 trips as follows:
1 <01 Jun 18 - 02 Jun 18> via Border in/out Malaysia
2 <29 May 18 - 30 May 18> via Border in/out Malaysia
3 <12 May 18 - 15 May 18> via Air in/out Thailand
4 <09 May 18 - 09 May 18> via Border in/out Malaysia
5 <05 May 18 - 05 May 18> via Border in/out Malaysia

All of out is back to my country Singapore.

2. Post a picture of the last stamp of at the last page here.



3. Post a picture of the last "exit" stamp (Penang) by air here.

There isn't any exit stamp (Penang) as I was not even allowed to enter at Penang Airport.

4. Any altercations with immigration officers at Penang Airport?

No. But I do have records of arguing with Traffic Police over summon issue in JB.

My main concern now is:
1) If I am still allowed into Malaysia?
2) Will this stamp affect my travel to other countries?
