For west malaysian who work in Miri (or East malaysia), they need to have work permit and enter the state with passport.
Enter east malaysia with IC will only allow you to stay at maximun 30 days.
Anyway, there is no prob to make a new passport in Miri. The imigresen here is friendly and doing nothing cos not much ppl go apply passport everyday. The new passport can be obtained in the next day.
Oh.. Thanks for the extra info so next time acknowledge working permit needed for working east malaysia
Agreed their Immigresen is much more friendly and more relaxing compared KL. hehe..

I've mistakenly put my passport into a washing machine. I heard one of my friends said he had a same case like me, and when he went back to redo a new passport, the immigration officer asked him to wait for 3 months to collect his passport because of his carelessness of spoiling the passport. I want to know is there really such thing or the officer juz wan to minum kopi? I've bought May air ticket to Hong Kong and yesterday I heard ppl said like this. I thought want to redo my passport on April but after hearing that case, I think I better do it tomorrow. Anyone has any same case (spoilt passport renewal), pls share. Thank you.
I suggest to redo is asap with proper documentations like photocopy the damaged copy, nric,photo and birth cert. If you can try get some authorise letter maybe will help to boost the speed of redo.
