I'm a foreigner with valid working visa here in Malaysia. I am now pregnant and not yet married with the father of the child as he is married and has a wife.

1. Can I get identity card for my child?
2. Can I just give my child to him so the baby can have identity card?

The terms and conditions of your Foreign Working Employment Pass do not allow you to get pregnant here. It auto terminates once a female foreigner worker migrant gets pregnant.

1. Can I get identity card for my child?
In the absence of a Marriage Certificate, the child follows the Citizenship of the Mother. And when the mother is a foreign worker migrant,the child will be deported together with the mother back to the country of origin.

Malaysian identity card.. NO. If born in a Government Hospital, a Memo Cert is issued out certifying that this child is born in that hospital. There is no legal meaning to that memo inside Malaysia.

2. Can I just give my child to him so the baby can have identity card?
No ID for this child.
Only your country's Embassy can issue an ID, moreover the father is a married man.

Corrections to my above post /comments.

1. Can I get identity card for my child?

For the above @Cjo2790 case:

The newborn will be issued a red birth certificate with the words stated there "BUKAN WARGANEGARA" (Non Malaysian).

Sample of red birth certificate for this child:



Bring the child to your country's Embassy and get documents to exit Malaysia within the period as specified by your Embassy.

Malaysia does not have "Nationality by Birth" although some countries have. In the absence of a Malaysian marriage certificate, the newborn will follow the Nationality and Citizenship of the mother.

DO NOT BE CHEATED BY FAKE AGENTS.
