Dear Mr. Jeff

I’m from Vietnam. And I was a student who studied  abroad in Malaysia (IIUM) in 2014. However due to my overstayed for 3 months, I got blacklist since 2016 from Malaysia Immigration. But now I want to go back to Malaysia for work so can you please help me to check if I can go back to Malaysia by now (during this year 2022). 

As I don’t understand what does this stamp mean. I don’t know I got blacklist for 5 years or a lifetime. I paid 400 RM at that time and the officer told me I got ban from entering Malaysia for 5 years (but I’m not sure if I hear the right word as it was long time ago) and I just want to make sure that I can enter Malaysia so I’m kind of worried and just want to ask someone who knows well about this. 

And I’m so so sorry that I only have the photocopy of my passport so that the information on the image is not too clear to see. Btw, my passport have 47 pages in total, and I got the blacklist stamped on page 34. 

Thank you so much in advance and I’m looking forward to your response.

@ Yanimach

officer told me that I can’t enter Malaysia for 5 years but I’m not sure if it’s true..
Yes correct.. it is stated inside the stamp (5 tahun) is 5 years.

Technically the blacklist has expired last year.

But now I want to go back to Malaysia for work
Please come back thru proper channels. Come back with a VDR Visa. Find employer first to apply for you.

However you can come in under a Tourist Visa (if ur not from visa free countries) for 30 Days only (if from VN). 

You can come into Malaysian on a Tourist Visit Pass for 30 days. 
U MUST LEAVE MALAYSIA by /within the 30 days..

You may look for a employer (with permit to employ foreigners) show your credentials (if graduated from IIUM) and the employer will apply on your behalf thru MDEC or ESD (if U qualify and with appropriate working experience).

The employer will secure a VDR to be send to your country of abode and then only you may enter "for the purpose of completing IMI procedures". This is a legal process. Do not break MY IMI Laws again as a young person...

I got it. I feel grateful for your help and thank you so much once again for your response. Thank you for clearing my worries, and I’m sure that I won’t break the MY IMI Laws ever again.
  
However, I didn’t graduate from IIUM but when I get back to my country (Vietnam). I was continuing my study and I just graduated this year and I graduated from RMIT University. 

Hope that I have a chance to work in Malaysia soon since I’m a Muslim and I really love the atmosphere and everything in Malaysia. To me it’s a peaceful country to live. 

Have a nice day Sir. Wish you all the best

Oh anyway, I have one more question. So that now I can freely come and enter Malaysia right? 

And do I really need to apply for a Tourist Visa as my country (Vietnam) does not require to get a visa before landing in Malaysia. 

Thank you very much once again

Ur case analysis :
studied  abroad in Malaysia (IIUM) in 2014
I didn’t graduate from IIUM

Q : When you studied in IIUM, is there a valid Student Pass?
Was this pass properly and legally "COM" out, meaning properly terminated?

If it wasn't cancelled and having a "COM applied for" stamped into the student Pass, it is one immigration infringement. Changing to new passport does not changes your travel records in MY IMI computer systems.

For sure you cannot hope to apply for a work permit in Malaysia until it is properly cancelled by IIUM. You may be able to still come in as a tourist depending on the IMI Officer during arrival. But if your file has a red alert for immigration infringement, a new officer may NTL (Deny Entry) for any visits. NOT TO LAND

This is why I always ask people to "pay" for a Visa to enter Malaysia whenever there has been a blacklist on them before (if this option is available from our Malaysian Embassy). I know for VN is free visa on arrival, but nowadays air tickets is very expensive and if you to be NTL then it would be a real hassle.

When you manage to come in, then go settle this COM issue via IIUM so that there are no hiccups in any application for EP (Employment Permit).

A friend is flying down from Jakarta in a few days just to visit me, the airfares was 2.5 times "old rates". So I made sure she has no problems passing thru immigration (with an official  invitation letter).

Here’s my one and only Student Pass during the time I studied in IIUM. There is a valid Student Pass from 2014 until 2015. After that period of time I got overstayed for 3 months and receive a blacklist on 2016. 

I’m so sorry I don’t understand what does it mean by ‘COM’ but according to the image of my old passport I can see that there is no ‘ COM applied for" stamped’ on my Student Pass. And I also have no remaining problem with visa between me and IIUM.

I will present my case like this, that is in 2016 when I received the blacklist stamped on my passport and returned to Vietnam, I received an offer letter from IIUM that they will try to apply for an appeal and ask me to apply for a Single Entry Visa in order to come back to IIUM so I can continue my studies in there. 

And on 2017, I got back to Malaysia with Single Entry Visa. 

IIUM tried to apply for an appeal visa and reduce my blacklisting period. However, in 2017, when I checked in the EMGS website, my Student Pass was rejected by Malaysia Immigration.  

This means that I have not received any Student Pass since 2014-2015.  Moreover, in 2018 I successfully returned to Vietnam thanks to the Vietnamese embassy and I returned with a Special Pass.

Below is all of my records from EMGS website

Hai Yani..

Just a short reply without explanations.
M out of town and replying on small handphone keypad is very tedious for me.
i will explain how to go around this issue in 3-4 days time (Wednesday?).

Just as I had suspected it is a COM immigration issue.

Read the following to know what are the other possible issues :

https://www.lawyerment.com/answers/questions/14186/student-visa-malaysia-there-is-no-such-thingy-as-student-visa-only-have-student

https://www.lawyerment.com/answers/questions/13772/student-visa-renewal-after-returning-home-got-blacklisted-by-malaysia

Read oso the other immigration topic contents, there are many sample issues

**EMGS has vetted and approved your studies twice

**MY IMI had issued you a student pass before

Then why IMI reject your application during the second time? It is not because of the blacklist (since EMGS) had bypass the blacklist and issue you a VAL to come back to continue

I need to have more info before i can assess your actual "immigration issue"

1.  Expiry date of your old passport (mth/year)

2.  Issue date and expiry date of your new passport

3.  Reason why and how you overstay 3 months

4.  You have taken the "Amnesty Program" rite? That's why you paid RM300 penalty.

5.  Did you overstay 3 months?
Student Pass expiry date Sept 2015
Special Pass issued date Jun 2016
This shows you have overstay 8-9 months.
Can you elaborate why?

The your answers will determine on whether you can "emigrate" into Malaysia for work purposes or "immigrate" for Permanent Residency.

I will comment after 4 days..

@ Yani dear..

Another puzzle to explain..

Moreover, in 2018 I successfully returned to Vietnam thanks to the Vietnamese embassy and I returned with a Special Pass.

You have been notified by EMGS that your Student Pass application has been reject  in March 2017.. why you exit only in 2018 (month?)

Why is that your the Embassy is involved?
What are your possible other issues?

Technically speaking, your blacklist period starts from date of last exit from Malaysia that is in 2018..!! (mth?)

Please post the exit stamp (2 full pages) of 2018..

Expiry date of your old passport (mth/year) 

Expiry date: 25 September 2023

2.  Issue date and expiry date of your new passport 

Issue date: 11 July 2022
Expiry date: 11 July 2032

3.  Reason why and how you overstay 3 months 

I was submitted my passport to IIUM visa unit on July 2015 so that I can renew my student pass. But at that time there is some problems with IIUM Visa Unit (I’m not so sure about this but this is the only explanation from IIUM visa unit staff to me at that time). So that they can’t send my passport to Malaysia Immigration at Putra Jaya before the expired date of my student pass. 

4.  You have taken the "Amnesty Program" rite? That's why you paid RM300 penalty. 

As I remember I didn’t take amnesty program but at that time when I went to Putra Malaysia Immigration they said I have no student pass so I can’t go back to my country. And IIUM Visa Unit also cannot do anything else to help me renew my student pass so that if I want to go back to Vietnam then I need to pay 400RM as well as receiving a blacklist stamp on my passport 

5.  Did you overstay 3 months? 
Student Pass expiry date Sept 2015 
Special Pass issued date Jun 2016 
This shows you have overstay 8-9 months. 
Can you elaborate why? 

I supposed to overstay for 3 months at the time when IIUM visa unit announced me that they failed to sending my passport to Malaysia Immigration. 

And after calling me to explain, they tell me not  to go back to Vietnam but just continue my study and they will figure out a way to solve my student pass and overstayed issues. 

I still remember that IIUM visa unit staff takes me to Putra Jaya Malaysia Immigration more than twice at that time for me to have a special pass to continue staying in Malaysia.

And this is all happening before I got a blacklist stamp on my passport.
