I have a female PRC friend, who was offered with a job employment letter and temporary work permit letter and came to Malaysia in February 2008. Somehow, she was told that her medical report has problem and unable to proceed the work permit application but required RM3k more to make it goes thru, due to she has paid RM20k before coming here, she has no more money, but still she was told to start working.

Unfortunately, in end May 2008, she was caught by immigration officer and got a stamp on her passport asks her to leave country in 2 weeks. She was very upset because she has paid RM20K and earn nothing coming here, so she continues working because the agent told her that it's very easy to get letter to go back.

Worse, she was offered by another agent in Penang who claimed able to apply the stucked work permit for her, but the agent in Penang did not submit the passport to immigration but cheated her money.

Then the origin Kuala Lumpur (KL) agent came to her again and offered to get her work permit and confirmed that the work permit will be done in 2 weeks. Of course paying another RM8k. Unfortunately and worst now, has been 4 months, the agent still unable to get her the work permit and keep saying wait. Recent 2 weeks, she said that the agent keeps telling her that her permit has been approved but unable to collect it.

1:- Could anyone please from the above situation, is she being cheated by the agent again?
2:- How and what can she do to return home now?
3:- Any one who is real and genuine can help her to return home?

My advice is go to Immigration Department directly. They can solve your problem. Agents are not a good idea.

I would strictly advise you not to advise the flying agents even though you know them and they are friendly with you.

If you still think someone seems really eager to solve your problem, please get his/her original IC/Passport to see and get it scanned or copy before handing over your passport or any figure of amount.

I have a friend who recently met with a great incidence and lost money, the Malaysian party got his case and assured him to get his visa done within a week even he was over stayed no matter. He paid RM1,500 in advance and did a big mistake which was that he gave them his passport as well. Even passport is not required until the approval is online.

After a week he got a call from the Agent saying that the visa is done so it to be collected paying the remaining amount. Then he called me to accompany him for the visa collection. So we were told to go to a restaurant somewhere in the Kuala Lumpur (KL). When I got the passport of my friend and saw the visa sticker, I just checked it from mobile and unfortunately there was no result found in the immigration website. So I ask my friend not to pay any single pie because the visa sticker was fake... now the agent start arguing with us and insisted to pay the balance payment. The agent just walked out with the passport.

I asked my friend to come with me to Police station for making Police report but my friend has no information about the agent's home, office or work place even the name was also incorrect unfortunately.

Now we had no option so I called the agent to return the money and passport, but he started black mailing me saying that if I didn't pay till the next day morning then he will destroy the passport with fire and turn off his number.

Since the passport was very important for us, hence I took a great risk now to go and collect the passport, because the agent was scared that if I have informed the police so he will have chances to get caught...

He instructed me long ways on call to walk and changed my walking directions over hundred times, finally I reached to a such a quite place where I saw a few monkeys climbing on the tree in a jungle/forest nearby.

The hell agent was there... he asked me RM1,000 more, but I asked him to show the passport and count me the pages serial wise, because I was in doubt he might destroy any page while taking off the fake sticker.

After once he did show me all, the particular page was effected but not taken off...so I refused to pay RM1,000, but he was actually a gangster, he suddenly called another two guys and finally they made me helpless to pay on gun point. Still I refused and just offered RM500, which they took and run away throwing his passport on ground.

So in this way we lost RM2K Just for nothing.. and this is what the real case which I faced for my friend.

So please be aware of such scammers and gangsters and all the flying agents. You will have chances to loss your passport as well due to carelessness and blind trusting on people whom you don't know really by their actual background.

The Indian Commission staff at Jalan Mont Kiara treat people (victims) very impolitely. Victims have lost everything and go there, then the staff behave rudely. I know you are coping with stress at work but those people go there as the Commission is their last hope.

Today, I saw the lady staff asking a man [He came to Malaysia on a visit visa and he lost his passport and overstayed in Malaysia] where his boarding pass, arrival tickets and immigration copy. If he lost is passport how will he get that. He came in the Embassy at 8 o'clock and waited till 12 o'clock for his turn to be called. Then the lady staff said, "How can I believe without emigration copy you enter Malaysia. Go and collect emigration copy." How is that possible? Please, please behave nicely to poor people.

India High Commission in Malaysia is for helping people but the staff behave rudely.

Visitor visa
Is it single entry or multiple entry?

Overstayed
How long overstayed?

Make call back to home country to get purchase air ticket invoice.
From the ticket flight date can verify entry date at Malaysian Immigration.
If return ticket date expired and also entry visa expired, it is overstayed whether 1 month or 2 years.

Nobody can help. India High Commission and Jabatan Imigresen Malaysia (JIM) cannot do anything.

Surrender to immigration is the only solution.

99% of those who overstay will claim lost of passports. 
Immigration will sure ask for proof of arrival.
For the past 3 years, just go to the Immigration and scan your finger prints.
They will tell you when you arrived. But first of all you must surrender. That's all you need to do.

I was looking to get a work permit in Malaysia. It seems it's not easy as with any other country which require employer to apply work permit. I contacted QADKAM Sdn and got a reply but thank God I read it here that QADKAM Sdn are cheater. I am now not going to any agent rather apply to some other country like Australia or New Zealand.

Thanks for help and saving my hard earned money.

I was in Malaysia and an agent cheated me as well, I also lodge a police report but because one Malaysian woman was one of the agent therefore police didn't take any action but somehow I recovered my passport with the help of my friend.

I applied for work permit through very famous agent name ANGALI (a Chinese lady) but my bad luck I get caught by the Immigration, without asking me any question other then about my passport, they sent me to the deport camp where I suffered hunger, thirst, disrespect with more then 130 people in a small hall for 14 days (no contact with outside world and relatives). Then they took me to the court and without asking any question except one to SAY THAT I AM GUILTY OR THEY WILL SEND ME TO DEPORT CAMP FOR ANOTHER 14 DAY AND SO ON UNTIL I SAY YES. So called judge sentenced me to 3 months prison, some people also get corporal punishment.

After being humiliated for 3 months they send me to another deport camp and there get only one chance to call my parents. And for one minute call I paid RM100 to a Malaysian RELA police. It took 20 days for my parents and friends to approach me back and send ticket twice (one ticket money was eaten by some officer). Therefore, I suffered another 10 days for nearest flight.

At last they take us to another extremely dirty deport camp two days before flight. On flight day they handcuffed us into airport thorough main entrance of KLIA airport. Almost all of my belongings were taken by their police.

I RECOMMEND EVERYONE TO CONSIDER THIS BEFORE GOING TO MALAYSIA. I also met with those who had their work permit but their employers were not coming to receive them. Some are visitors but forgot to take their passport with them while shopping.

@ Raza Ali

Which country you are from?

I also meet with who had their work permit but their employers were not coming to receive them.
There are no employers in the very first place.
Those people may be just telling lies.
Like you who were cheated by their own agents.
There is no such thing like work permit already been issued even before reaching the shores of Beautiful Malaysia.

Some are visitors but forgot to take their passport with them while shopping. 
Those visitors are talking nonsense.

I am from Pakistan.

Most of my friends are working in Malaysia and their employers always help them when needed. Its also most of the workers use work permit to evade police and work under different employers. Few visitors I met in the camp claim that they forgot their passport in hotel and one of them was release during my detention therefore I can surely say about one,. It actually depends on where you been caught and how they handle your case. Europeans always treated very well. Pakistan, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Iran, India, Africa and Burma citizens are treated very inhuman way.

I know an Iranian who tried to get a working visa but after the agent investigated for few months on whatever necessary, he found out that he was not eligible for a working visa. Out of anger, he wanted to take revenge on the introducer & agent, the Iranian accused that the introducer supplied fake visa to him. The passport was returned to him & explained to the Iranian that he is not eligible. However, the Iranian made fake visa document & reported to police that the agent supplied fake visa.
