What is the penalty for Drink and Drive in Malaysia?

Those caught committing such an offence will face a minimum fine of RM1,000 (all the way up to RM5,000) and/or a jail term below two years. First-time offenders will also have their driving licence disqualified for a minimum of two years. He urged the public to refrain from driving if they have consumed alcohol.  [20 May 2022]

1.  He is the holding a EP (Employment Pass), a PWP Category (II) with a minimum contract of RM 5,000/monthly for a period of 2 years.

2.  The " 7 days in Jail " can merely means he was held inside Police lockup under "remand". Police Remand can be a minimum of 3 days and be further "remand". Same treatment for locals too. Under remand have no access to your lawyers until charged in court on that day.

3.  Sending to Immigration Detention camp means he is further held for other immigration offenses. Only the Employer stated in his PWP can bail him out pending any further charges.

4.  Immigration has the authority to detained a foreigner for 14 days without giving reasons.

Other possible offenses by JPJ (Road Transport)

A foreigner with the intention of living and commuting inside Malaysia for more than 30 days have to have a IDL issued by the Road Transport. Malaysian International Driving Licence.

A foreigner has to comply to all Laws of the Land (same as any local Malaysians)

Consequences can be termination of any issued Immigration PASS and be deported after being charged (paid penalties and/or jail term) in the various offences (single or jointly) in a court of Law.
