I have just done a voluntary repatriation for an ex-employee who is safely back in her 'kampung' in Indonesia, Central Java. I shall describe the procedure for the benefit of those in a dilemma on how to send their workers back legally without being exploited by so called Agents of blood.

With effective 8th February 2015, the repatriation process is done by a company known as IMAN, located at the 3rd floor of the Wangsa Maju Immigration Centre Kuala Lumpur. It is no longer conducted at PUTRAJAYA.


Step 1
Bring your worker to the Indonesian Embassy to get a SPLP (exit passport valid for 6 months).  Costs: RM15/xx

Step 2
Buy a valid air ticket direct to a airport nearest to their 'kampung'. 3 weeks (10 to 14 working days)

Step 3
Register at IMAN.

1. IMAN charges ------------------------------------ RM380
2. Insurance for air travel ------------------------ RM 20
3. Special Pass (exit/outpass) --------------------- RM100 (valid for 2 weeks)
4. Immigration Compound for Voluntary Repatriation - RM300
Total ---------------------------------------------- RM800

Filling the forms at IMAN is simple as ABC. Name, address at Indonesia. Nominee for air travel insurance, applicant contact number in Kuala Lumpur (KL) and at 'kampung' in Indonesia. Allow 3-4 working days for passport to come out from PUTRAJAYA back to IMAN/Wangsa Maju.

That is ALL. Agents are charging RM1,600-1,900 just to do it for employers. Nevertheless the applicant must be at the Immigration centre to do biometric finger printing twice, one at IMAN and the 2nd time at Immigration Malaysia. No agents or employers can be present at inside immigration. It is direct, simple, no questions ask about who are ex employers, and no fear, NO CHEATS! Just RM800/xx ONLY.

PETALING JAYA: A husband and wife were each fined RM10,000 for two counts of employing two Indonesian women as caddies without a permit.  

Magistrate Salamiah Salleh fined Leow Keng Liok and Nur Chusnul Chotimah RM10,000 respectively after they pleaded guilty to the charges on Tuesday.  

They paid the fine.

Leow and Nur Chusnul were jointly charged with employing 24-year-old Fitrianingsih and 21-year-old Sustiah without a permit at a premises in Ara Damansara at 10am on Sept 7.  

Leow is the director of a company supplying caddies to golf clubs while Nur Chusnul, who is an Indonesian, is the manager. 

Deputy Public Prosecutor Abu Arsalnaa Zainal Abidin has asked for a deterrent sentence as both accused should not have employed foreign workers without a permit.

In pleading for leniency, Leow and Nur Chusnul asked for a reduced fine as they needed to support their family.

Employers can apply for foreign maid permits online beginning Jan 1

SEPANG: From Jan 1 next year, employers can apply for foreign maid permits from the Immigration Department via an online system, according to Immigration Department director-general Datuk Seri Mustafar Ali. 

"Applications can be made directly without an agent or mediator, and it is expected to take seven to 16 days (to process)," he told reporters here, today. 

He said the direct recruitment of foreign maids from source countries would reduce the cost and burden of employers, whereby employers would only have to pay around RM3,600 to RM3,800, as compared to payments of between RM12,000 to RM18,000 made to agents previously. 

" The cost involves fees for levy, visit pass (temporary work), visa and processes set according to the respective countries, as well as flight cost. The online application system can help curb human trafficking activities," he said. 

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak while tabling Budget 2018 on Friday said the government would now give the option to employers to hire foreign domestic helpers directly from nine source countries, without going through agents. 
Najib said employers could also apply visa for their maids from the Immigration Department online, with levy and processing fees charged according to existing rates. 

On Saturday, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi stated that direct hiring of maids would save employers up to 50% of the cost. 

In the meantime, Mustafar explained that employers could identify individuals in Malaysia who are eligible to work as maids before making an online application and completing the nine processes set by the department. 

The nine processes are online registration by employers, login and registration of foreign maids, health screening, document upload, review, approval, decision notification, payment and printing of visit permit (for temporary work) stickers. 

"Employers can also go to the source country and look for prospects themselves, then bring them in to Malaysia using a social visit pass before making the application," he said. 
Mustafar added that the department would not object if employers still wished to use the services of agents and were willing to bear the high cost involved. — Bernama
