A Vietnamese friend of my was caught overstaying and detained by the Immigration. Case has been resolved, no need to go to court but fined RM300 and deported with blacklist. Thanks for all information I read by seniors in the forum.

However, I would like to clarify with those who know as to if there is such thing as “No fine at all” as the Immigration dropped the case and “No need to pay for the deportation air ticket”? I find this unbelievable because the lawyer acting for my friend told me this. I told the lawyer that he did a lousy job and wanted to reduce his fees as I personally went to pay the fine and the air ticket money at the Immigration (not agent). The lawyer said there is no need to pay a cent to the Immigration that why didn’t I check with him. I said if free ticket means have to be detained at detention center and wait for months to go back, he disagreed. Any advise from those with experience, thanks.

No fines for overstaying? No need to pay for own ticket back?

If those people do not give misinformation, would one engage their services? And pay for nothing? Look at the current few issues that by engaging so called lawyers have compounded their immigration problems...!!!

Take note that for those who had been held in detention centers have to pay for their food and lodging at the Heartbreak Hotel upon checking out. Why are public moneys used for feeding foreigners who has broken the immigration laws here?
