I understand from the recent news media that an employer can now register their prospective maid via the Immigration online system which includes foreign maids who have overstayed in Malaysia between January 1 to December 31, 2017.

I tried registering my maid and when I insert my maid’s passport details in the system, a pop-up message will appear with the message, “Gagal meneruskan transaksi ini kerana calon TIDAK MEMPUNYAI MAKLUMAT PAS. Sila rujuk Jabatan Imigresen Malaysia untuk makluman lanjut”.

From my maid’s passport, it appears that her social pass has expired on 26 March 2017. When I first received my maid from Indonesia, I have already paid my agent for all the charges including getting a valid employment pass for my maid. Unfortunately, despite many reminders my agent has failed to get the pass and he is now avoiding my calls.

Since now that Immigration Malaysia is allowing maids who have overstayed to be registered subject to a compound (according to the newspapers), I will not want to depend on my agent anymore and just wish to make this right.

I suspect that the online system has rejected my attempt to register my maid because she currently does not have a valid pass and I will probably need to resolve this first.

I would appreciate it if you can advice me how I should approach this without risking my maid being deported because of the overstay. Thanks.

Since you are able to find hire a maid online are you aware that you can be fine RM10000, a Jail Term, Canning (plus blacklisting as have been a jailbird) for harboring an illegal? Saving your own skin or her skin?

which includes foreign maids who have overstayed in Malaysia between January 1 to December 31, 2017.
Read properly and interpret correctly again..!!

You have been scammed..!!

Not accurate. You should have bought her to directly to the Immigration to apply before the 31 December 2017. The current online application should have the same issues as the MyEG applications.

My suggestion, one and only one:

Send her back!
