I'm a Malaysian. I have a Filipino friend who is a close family friend.  She has visited Malaysia a few times since June 2017.    

This year, she came to Malaysia on 9 June 2018 for her usual yearly visit/holiday. She then left to Cambodia on 29 June 2018 and returned to KL on 1 July 2018 for holidays. There were no problems at the immigration who let her through and stamped another 30 days social visit pass.  As there was the recent typhoon raging in Philippines, instead of going home to Manila, she decided on another holiday. By this time, she had booked herself a flight back on 11 August 2018. 

She then left to Phuket on 29 July 2018 and then returned on 1 August 2018.  At this time, she was issued an NTL as she had done a "U turn" back to Malaysia (instead of going back to PH). She was advised that she would be sent back to the port of embarkation which was Phuket.  Instead of this, she told the immigration staff that she already had a flight booked on 11 august and then paid to have this amended and was therefore flown back to Manila.  

Our question now is that would she be able to come to Malaysia for social visits in the future?  The immigration staff who interviewed said that she would be generally allowed back after a 3 months cooling off period.  Could you advise please?  Thank you so much.

What advice do you want? The Immigration Officer has already advised you.

Thank you for replying.  

I'm sorry for the earlier long post.  Generally thought best to elaborate on what had happened.  

The question is that if for example, if my Filipino friend would be allowed to come back in to Malaysia for social visits, say for Hari Raya this June 2019.  Would it be advisable for her to seek advice at the Malaysian Embassy in Manila?  I do know that the final decision is still made at our Immigration desk in the airport.  

Thank you.

returned on 1 August 2018.  At this time, she was issued an NTL 

Just come back this Hari Raya.
Just remember to fulfill the minimum requirements to enter Malaysia.
Bring minimum RM1,000 CASH  also.
It will clear the NTL.
