I booked a flight home on the 1st of January 2020 and then I found out after the fact that my work visa expires on the 30th of December 2019 (No excuses, I am an idiot). 

So at the time of writing this, I have more or less a week to sort this out, what would be the best option for my case? Aside from changing my flight date which would cost some fortune.

Thank you in advance.

what would be the best option for my case? 
1. Change your flight plans.

2. Go immediately to any Immigration Office and apply for an extension of another 7 days. They may charge you RM 100 for a special pass (extension).

Reasons for extension:
1. No available flights during this festive season.
2. You would like to spend the New Year in Malaysia with your ex-colleagues.

Please check if there are other issues as you have mentioned "expiry of work visa".

3. Have you gotten a C.O.M. stamp in your passport for the completion of the work permit? Your legal employer have to COM you out legally.

4. The air-tickets prices are sky high these few weeks because too many illegal immigrants are leaving by end of December coupled with the fact, competing with tourist going home.
