Malaysia: Special pass for overstay occurrence

What’s new

Effective 1 April 2014, the Malaysian Immigration Department (ID) in Cyberjaya will only issue Special Pass (SP) to Employment Pass (EP) and Dependant Pass (DP) holders for overstay of not more than seven (7) days.

This only applies to Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) and Information and Communications Technology (ICT) status companies whose EP and DP applications are submitted to the ID in Cyberjaya.

Changes to note

For individuals who have overstayed for more than seven (7) days, they are required to obtain a memo from the ID in Cyberjaya and thereafter proceed to the Enforcement Division at the Immigration Department Headquarters in Putrajaya for the SP application.

To obtain a memo from the ID in Cyberjaya, the following documents are required:

- SP declaration from
- Format A
- Copy of passport (all pages)
- Cover letter from employer for application of SP (in Bahasa Malaysia)
- Approval letter from the Multimedia Development Corporation for EP and/or DP application (if any)

Deloitte’s view

EP and DP holders should take note of the validity of their passes and initiate renewal application (if any) at least three (3) months before the expiry to avoid any complications that could lead to an overstay.

For expatriates who are no longer continuing their employment in Malaysia and have cancelled their respective passes, they should ensure that they depart on or before the expiry of their passes to avoid any overstay issues.

Overstaying in Malaysia without a valid pass is an offense under Section 15(1)(c) of the Immigration Act 1959.
