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?

The Iranian made his own fake visa & accused the agent for supplying fake visa to him. Would the Magistrate Court believe that the Iranian put the blame on the agent?

Never ever overstayed your visa/permit... just in case if you are not able to renew your permit better go back to your country. I did the same mistake and now I'm suffering for the last three years.

I've been working as an electrician for last 7 years. I am not qualified for iKad or MyEG because I am 46. Only those under 45 years of age can apply for iKad or MyEG. Any way to become legal worker or over 45 of age must go home?

One of my known family's son, went to Malaysia, through an agent, from Hyderabad- Murtaza and through another agent again, at Kuala Lumpur- Kumar. The boy in question, during his stay, was threatened to work in the agent's own hotel, or else... etc? Secondly, he took almost 1-1.5 lakh, as an agent money, but did nothing, thirdly, he confiscated his Passport. Lastly, with no work permit and visa expiry, this boy - named Umesha, was arrested and sent to jail. In fact, this poor boy, is from a real poor family, of having, one square meal, a day, I only pray and hope, that these agents must be punished, but, is there anybody, who can do that? Nobody, and this continues to flourish.

Until 13 December 2017 Immigration penalty is RM 300 and for the Exit Pass  is RM100.

Without passport, the India Embassy charges RM 100 for the Travel Documents.

In any situation, the overstayer must go personally for biometrics IMI.

The "Agent" would arrange from KL to Putrajaya and back RM400 for the two way trip. Some "runners" are overcharging.
