There is no doubts about the fact that 70% of Migrants Workers are Males and majority are Fathers. They are here in Malaysia to work for moneys to be send back to put  FOODS on the table, send their children for Education.

Malaysia is a  Developing Country  who needs the services of Migrant Workers in several sectors. Some sectors which are shunned by the locals for obvious reasons. This choosing of "jobs" has happened to all developed as well as developing countries.

It is hope that the current predicament of illegal migrant workers be solved in the shortest possible time to avoid unpleasant confrontation.

Nothing much have been posted in this forum. I shall post some information regarding the Plight of Illegal Workers in Malaysia.

How about those waiting for sticker? Thumbprint done and levy paid but still no sticker. MyEG said just wait. This one will MyEG will still process? Or after June 30 if no sticker then MyEG stop processing? Please advise. Thanks.

Hi Ana,

Try to understand the following first.

1.  MyEG is an Online Service Provider appointed by the Immigration Department for the Rehiring Program. Their contract ends 30 June 2018. So there can be last minute applications till and on 29 June 2018.

2.  The 3rd (3+1) Surrender ends 30 August 2018. MyEG has to complete and process all accepted applications (on/before 29 June 2018) within 01 July 2018 till 30 August 2018. So, if MyEG cannot give you the VPTE (Visit Pass - Temporary Employment) sticker by 30 August 2018, then your application can be considered unsuccessful unless there are further letters from Immigration direct to inform the applicant of any delays.

3.  Thumbprint done and levy paid but still no sticker. MyEG said just wait. 
The thumbprint done is at MyEG (useless), the levy paid is to MyEG NOT to Immigration Department. MyEG is just a vendor who submits your application to the Immigration Department. Once the application is successful, Immigration will inform MyEG to remit the levy to Immigration and inform the Applicant to go direct to do the thumbprint @Immigration. After all being done, the VPTE sticker is released direct to the worker at Immigration.

4.  VPTE sample

5.  There are 2 main applicants to this Rehiring namely 1. Employer, 2. The worker. The employer has to chase MyEG hard and fast before 30 August 2018. Camp outside their office.

You should be more concerned on whether your application is or can be successful instead of waiting for "no replies" from MyEG. There could be serious flaws in the application.

To know if your application can be a valid one, please answer the following :-
1.  Who are you, the employer or employee?
2.  Post a copy here of the "entry" stamp on the applicant passport for better understanding. No worries, it is just an image, no use to anybody. I just posted mine out today in this forum under another section/thread. I need to know the date and under what sort of pass he/she entered and from which country.
3.  Screen capture the applicant status on MyEG website and post here.

Read this...


1. The Immigration Department and Kementerian Dalam Negeri (KDN) have a set of terms and conditions and criteria in which an Employer must comply.

2. The Employer must provide supporting documents to support the REHIRING application.

3. The Employer must not have "negative" records with Immigration Department.

4. The Employer must not be blacklisted.

Let me show you a document from the Immigration which has flaws which the employer and employee have not completed. Study it to understand your own situation better.

Read the above, I do not understand why so many details were not given in the initial submission of the application. This causes delays and problems. The Immigration Department does reply but some delays are from the Employer themselves.

It would interesting to note that:
1.  This person does not have entry date into Malaysia as above. Maybe came in by Yellow Submarine.
2.  This PLKS application has expired.

I am still hoping for a reply from you.
I have given you so much information.

Sample of Valid VPTE with Immigration "entry" stamps. It means this worker came into Malaysia LEGALLY.

To know how the Banglas were cheated and manipulated by their own countrymen, which is the source of corruption and illegal Human Trafficking started from their own country (Bangladesh), read here:-

Over 100,000 Bangladeshi workers paid RM20k each to syndicate involving 'Datuk Seri' fatcat to work in Malaysia

22 Jun 2018

PETALING JAYA: A human trafficking syndicate, spearheaded by a Bangladeshi businessman with alleged political connections with the Home Ministry, raked in at least RM2bil in just two years from Bangladeshi workers looking to land jobs in Malaysia.

An investigation revealed that the workers paid RM20,000 each to their local agents who then paid half of the sum to the syndicate to facilitate work permit approvals and flight tickets to Malaysia.

It is learned that since late 2016, more than 100,000 Bangladeshi workers have been brought into the country under the system, while more than 100,000 are waiting for their turn.

Our investigation also revealed that the businessman, who even has a “Datuk Seri” title, was the mastermind behind the organised and “legalised” multibillion-ringgit human trafficking scam.

Due to his strong political influence in both Malaysia Bangladesh, the businessman was also instrumental in getting the two countries to sign a government-to-government agreement in 2016, giving only 10 companies from Bangladesh the right to recruit migrant workers for Malaysia.

The agreement ultimately sidelined about 1,500 recruitment agents in Bangladesh.

Furthermore, according to a source, some of the 10 authorised agents were merely fly-by-night companies created solely to rake in money by playing middleman between the workers and their prospective employers in Malaysia.

Despite the hefty RM20,000 price tag, the whole process – from documentation and transporting these workers to Malaysia – cost the agents less than RM2,000 a person.

“The ‘Datuk Seri’ has grown richer, his close aides and business associates living lavishly,” said the source.

“The Datuk Seri also shares a portion of the money he makes with politicians and government staff from both countries,” he said, adding that the man, who is in his late 40s, was married to a Malaysian for more than 15 years.

The source said the “Datuk Seri” even went a step further to grease what he described as a “well-oiled money-making scheme to exploit Bangladeshi workers”...

Full Story:
But the above exposure did not mentioned that it could be the same syndicate that were producing Fake Work Permits, Fake Special Pass and Fake "Entry"  stamps on the passports. This "fake" business is easily 5 times more than the 2 Billion Industry. Simple... bring those people in, make them illegal, then issue fake docs to make more moneys.
