I have a maid who has been overstaying in Malaysia since August 2018. Is surrendering her to her embassy and the Malaysia Immigration and return to Indonesia better or get a runner to make a special pass under table with Putrajaya Immigration better? Better in terms of ringgit fines.

Amnesty still available?

special pass under table with Putrajaya 
Why are people still breeding corruption in Malaysia?

Current Malaysia Immigration polices:
1.  No AGENTS.
2.  Amnesty is over.
3.  Employers must bring their overstay workers direct to the Immigration to surrender. Otherwise if the worker surrenders by herself, she may/can/would be held in detention camps for further interrogation. Under interrogation, if the worker can name names, addresses, name of children or elderly folks, neighbors name and numbers, etc etc,  the employer can/may/would be jailed and heavy fines for not surrendering their illegal workers.

@jeff005,

Is the compound fee higher if 

1. I surrender and send her back to Indonesia, or 
2. Surrender and request for special pass and continue for 1 year work?

Why are you only thinking about the monetary compound fines?

2. Surrender and request for special pass and continue for 1 year work.
You are harbouring an illegal NOW..!! Are you not scared of the even higher fines, jail term, whipping? The errant employer can be temporary BANNED from travelling overseas?

I guess you have not read this

https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2018/12/28/immigration-caning-good-deterrent-against-hiring-illegal-immigrants/

OR THIS



Go bring your maid to Malaysia Immigration to surrender.

The following people will not be jailed under current policy.
a)  The Overstay Maid
2)  The Errant Employer

Take it or leave it..!!!

I really could not understand the above. Only those faked Agents always declare the above.

I have had posted over a hundred times about overstay, NTL, different situations, different cases, why people were jailed. Either my Manglish is bad or is it hardcore people refuse to believe it and only wanted to hear what they wanted to hear and not  FACTS..??

The postings on Immigration issues is a thankless job. Only 2% will be thankful with replies and updates. THE REST  IS STILL WAITING FOR FALSE HOPES.

@jeff005,

I have asked immigration before. I could get a special pass and 1 year work permit if I surrender, lock up maid, interview and pay fines. But the sum is so huge. Maximum about RM7k.

I have asked immigration before
When did you ask?
Policies have changed after 30 August 2018.
Policies have changed again after 01 November 2018.
New Policies with effect from 01 January 2019.

Since Malaysia Immigration has advised you, why are you here again wasting people's time? And if you have asked the Immigration direct, why are you asking "Where is the Malaysia Immigration? Must be Putrajaya?".
