Hi all, I need to get advise here...I'm going to Hong Kong next month to visit my relative, all alone...so, pls advise me on the following icon_question.gif :

1. I want to apply passport. The nearest place for me is Damansara, near HELP college. Where exactly is the location? My friend told me to take Putra LRT, then feeder bus and stop at Menara Millennium. Then how? I heard over there got a machine to insert all your documents and money, which means u dont have to queue up for number. Issit true?

2. My flight to HK is 7.30am, which means I need to be at airport by 5.00am. Once I reach the airport, what's the procedures? How do I check in? After check in, then go where?

Hope all the frequent travellers can help me....thanks! rclxms.gif

I think you better do your passport fast if you plan to travel next month. I believe it takes a minimum 2 weeks for the Immigration Department to get the passport ready from the date of application.

Depending on where you live, there is an Immigration Department at Kompleks Wilayah and at the old Subang Airport. The one at Pusta Bandar Damansara is normally packed with people. My best advice is to be there early i.e. before 7 a.m. to get queque for a number.

As for international flight, you need to check-in at least 2 hours from the flight departure. After you check in just go to the departure gate that is stated on your ticket and waiting for boarding.

Hope this helps smile.gif

I think machine autorenewal is only for renewing passport, if you are applying for the first time, then you need to go to counter. I heard the old Subang airport (?terminal 2) is the least crowded, Wilayah kompleks should still be functioning for passport application, provided you go early, not on school hoiliday, should be fast. Passport will be ready in 3 days, RM300 for 32 pages.
you can download the form here
http://www.imi.gov.my/eng/Forms/im_forms.asp
othewise first thing is got o the form counter to buy the form and get to the queque, which can be loooong..
need 2 passsport size photo (make sure is the correct size), original and photocopied IC, and pay money on the same day.


HK might have lots of passenger, which mean you better go early, check from the display which counter are you suppose to check in (MAS has a common counter, which mean any flight on MAS can be checked in there).

Then go to the international departure gate, you need to go down the escalator and reach immigration check point, malaysian passport is simple, just go to one of the autogate and insert ur passport as instructed, then u are done. After that take the aerotrain (just follow people) and you will be brought to the gate, look for ur gate, usually u have time to hang around, nowadys there is an internet booth (still around?) that u can surf for free. Fast food there is burger king, rest are all cafes, bring something to eat then u can save money.

sign boards are everywhere so you wont miss ur way

that is it, hope it help..

no need

for bit of additional cost
you can get photo and IC photostated on the spot (in Kompleks Wilayah)

BTW
those people from Sabah and Sarawak need to bring birth cert along iif yopu apply in Peninsular Malaysia
and it wil probably takes like 6-8 weeks vmad.gif

Also it just takes 1 day to get a passport ready nowadays.

Had the old version of passport RM 150, can be used to travel to S'pore. It can't be used anymore due to change of law and have to change to the International version RM 300.

What type of application is this? New application? What documents are needed? Photocopy of IC and passport size photo only?

Which place to make passport is nearer to SS 15, Subang Jaya? Any public transport to get there? Thanks.

New international passport RM300 cannot renew.Valid 5 years
There is one imigresen at Dang Wangi nearby police station.
New Passport take 1 day to get it.Normally you will get next day.
But for a weird reason old passport holder will get after next 2 day.
If you have special letter you will get on the spot.Like medical and etc.
Last time I go 10am no queue like last time(maybe my luck).Just take half hour and then finish.Just pay RM10 to get passport photo at nearby shop.And 1 photostat IC and fill up the form.Buy the form RM1 if not mistaken.
Total cost RM311+RM10 to drink and petrol at pposite mamak stall hehe..GOOD LUCK

New application and renewal are the same nowadays. You fill up the same form and submit the same things.. photocopy i/c and 2 passport size photo.

Not sure if there is any bus going there.. cos practically no one goes that way nowadays. Best is just take a taxi.

It is not renewable.. you get a new passport the next day. Not renewed on the spot. It's more of a deposit machine rather than a renewing machine.

Not true. You can do it outside and they will accept it. All photo shops will know how to take a correct passport size photo. You can even diy if you can. Besides the instant photo taken on the spot has horrible quality but they still accept it tongue.gif

1) RM300 for 32 pages (IIRC, it is for 5 years. Correct me if I'm wrong)
2) 3 working days
3) How old are you? above 12 years old, parent's IC is not required. Just need your birth certificate and your IC.
4) Refer to no. 1
5) Refer to the IC's address. Ask them for more info.

Why do you need to apply the passport for?

If it is for overseas study, you'll get a 50% rebate if show them your offer letter as a proof

2. two piece of passport size photo with blue background
3. RM300 cash.
4. Last but no least.. yourself..

I just did my passport yesterday at Subang Terminal 2. Very fast I would say, but it required you to come back on the next day *personally* to collect your ready passport.

So make sure you arrange your schedule wisely.

1. not sure, never been there.. if possible, better go the early.. just in case..
2. less than an hour provided that there are not many people and more counters are opened.. heard said can collect in 24 hours or 3 days.. last time i did was 3 months..
3. once the numbers are given out.. they will.. they have a certain so-called quota of the day..

hope these helps.. laugh.gif

Most if not all centers can renew passports in 24 hours.
But if you're asking about the queue, then your best bet would be Putrajaya.

travel agents can apply but they still need you to go to the embassy for interview. Go there must have a valid reason, like studying (u need a letter from the uni) or travelling (u need relevant prove) something like that

Dude, that's not crap... Being a Sabahan is like a Malaysian but with different nationality. The same goes to those Sarawakians. That's because of the population control policy implemented by Sabah & Sarawak state government.

If you said that's crap, let me tell you what the real crap is....

People from Peninsula going to Sabah & Sarawak need immigration control. People from there coming to Peninsula no control at all. I need a work permit when I'm working in Sabah & Sarawak. And the stupid work permit occupy one whole page in my passport. I've been asked by many immigrations officer in other countries, why do I need a work permit to work in malaysia when I'm a MALAYSIAN!!! And I have to tell them about the stupid policy.

I get 3 months social visit visa when I go to east Malaysia. I get SIX months social visit visa when I go to UK!!!

lost the birth cert? if i not mistaken, u can go to jpn in putrajaya and the copy of ur birth cert. i don't think need to reapply again. why don't u call the jpn and check it out. coz last time i heard everyone's birth cert will have a copy in the putrajaya's jpn. i don't sure la but the best is call the jpn and get more details.

I need to apply for a US Visa and have completed most of the process including an appointmet on next week and paid US100 to RHB.
The only things that I am not sure is about the Issuance Fee. I have no idea what is the Issuance Fee is all about and how should it be done, also can I take my photograph at other location instead of only at the recommended US Visa photograph shop which is at Ampang Park?

Have you been to an US visa interview? what will they ask you?

TAKE NOTE, THE USD100 IS NOT AN ISSUANCE FEE. IT IS AN APPLICATION FEE FOR US VISA. SO, THE AMOUNT IS NOT REFUNDABLE EVEN IF YOUR VISA APPLICATION IS UNSUCCESSFUL.

why do they have such policy? your guess is as good as mine but I am pretty certain that their desire to stop frivolous application and unwanted people from making countless application for VISA has a lot to do with it.

but generally, if you are young; in your teen or 20 something, you really should have enough supporting documents in your application. it is important to present to the embassy a valid reason for your trip, including academic study, business trip or company assignments, or if it is a for holiday purpose, sufficient documentary evidence to show you are capable of surviving in America and have a decent, well-paid job or solid properties in Malaysia that you will not abandon. it helps if you are working in a major local companies or multinationals and you have a letter from your employer testifying that you are working for them in a sufficiently important position.

The time taken to apply a passport is much shorter now.
It took me one week to apply few months ago at Damansara Height

Besides, if your passport has a 'chip' inside, you don't have to queue up long. There is a machine downstairs which you can do it there.

And, the application for passport form is FREE. I went there to get it last time and the Reception wanted to charge me RM2.

Issuance Fee is defineitely not the USD100 fee, its called Machine Readable Visa (MRV) fee and my question was "What is an Issuance fee and how much?"
Anyone here who have the experienced in applying a US Visa and what to expect during the interview?

We can use either passport or IC when travelling to Sabah / Sarawak... if we using IC, then need to fill up a form before entering the imigresen check point over there.

it's quite easy from federal, From UM, make a turn towards the direction of shah alam, go straight for another 10 km, passing by hilton/armada, sunway bridge (double decker bridge) and the next junction on your left will be the one to subang airport (look at the sign board with subang + plane). go up the flyover, crossing the federal highway beneath u and into subang airport road., from there just go straight for another 10 km or so... u will reach there. smile.gif

Alright, here is for Sabahan make passport at KL.
The officer told me that the fastest is 1 month- 3 month can complete.
They also look my birth cert. Photocopy 1. The others remain same.

My cousin also said like that. They said they need to take documents from Sabah back to KL. But I will give it a try. Sigh.. I am planning to go HK next month but I guess impossible to make it on time.

True, no need password, just show your IC that will do, but Sabah, KK does require passport sometimes, so bring the passport along always when you away from penisular tongue.gif save more trouble!

this is a cost savings travel security for Oz. as selected country only are allowed on E-visa which means by u pre apply d visa n the E-visa is not a visible visa...not like those US or schengen visa sticker.As your name had already appear in the system of the authority of OZ...they just swipe your passport(machine readable zone)at the machine...all is there.get it ?

good bout E-visa...cost savings n
prevent counter feit visa

bad bout e-visa...authority of the departing port to OZ will have a hard time...as anybody from the selected country can say...hey I hav a e-visa....u will have to counter check it in the system...if for 1 pax its ok....lets say 100 pax in the flight ?

You mean to collect passport at imigration? Of course you have to, no to collect passpord you dont have to go there earlier, just come in and get the number, you will soon be informed to collect, no longer than 30 mins, this is the simple procedure. Cheers smile.gif

Hi all, I did my passport in Subang. Here is a review of it.

I've arrived at 8.45am and queue up until 11.30 only to get the numbers, luckily manage to get the 330th number for Passport Application/Renewal counter. Thus, I'll get my turn on that afternoon itself. Get to submit my form around 3.15pm and to pay for the passport at 3.45pm. Here some of the pics.

There are 13 counters.

Counter 1 = To get the queue number for passport application/renewal
Counter 2,3,4,5,6,7, and 9 = Submission of passport application/renewal
Counter 8 & 11 = To pay for the application
Counter 10,12, and 13 = Passport collection (Queue number can be taken at counter 13)

*Please correct me if I'm wrong, cause I was not to sure about the order of the counters.

You have to be there at 7am. To be one of the few. I've been there a few times at 8am (only took half day off) also cannot make it until one fine day I was there at 7am.

Oh, if u plan to collect it also pls be early too. U have to bring the slip and pass it to Counter 13. Have to wait till ur number called. I was there around 8am also already 75 people number in front of me sweat.gif

i just came back from chinese embassy to make my visa. Here's some tips

1. The Embassy only opens from 9.45am -11.45am only. (i've been there like 3pm once and it was closed, only to found out they have such leisure at closing early)

2. But if it's closed you can still take the forms

3. Fill up the forms, you need 1 passport size photo and your passport

4. single entry RM30, double entry RM50 (pay only when u collect)

5. You need to hand in the passport.

It takes 4 working days to process it. I'll be going back there on thurs. laugh.gif

extended my passport yesterday. arrived at 9:30 am at Pusat Bandar Damansara. took 2 minutes with the KiPPas system. Collection today was a b**** though , took roughly 45 minutes waiting in line.

Lesson learnt : don't go too early to to passport. sucks to be caught up in a loooong queue when there's nobody at 9:30am

of course , might be just the festive season and there's no one around nowadays.

I need to ask about the medical examination and chest x-ray for applying for Australian student visa. I have lodged an application about a week ago, but to date, no case officer has contacted me via email.

But I once read on their website that the medical examination and x-ray can only be done after a case officer officially ask me to do so. Can I go for a medical examination and chest x-ray now? Because I'm afraid time is running out as I need to leave on 14/2/07. Got my electronic Confirmation of Enrolment late no thanks to stupid University. Group of Eight quality, huh?

I have read up whatever relevant to my application but it seems that there's no way I can contact the Australian Immigration department via email on this matter. They keep giving stupid Australian High Commission in KL, which doesn't even give a damn.

So any advice from sifus out there? Thanks.

but for me I would not do so...as it only wasting time...

*u can't enter Oz without a visa...touch wood if they do not grant your visa..then waste time lar..just my opinion.

Are you applied by yourself or through education agency like IDP education Australia? Although you applied by yourself, you may contact idp any branches nearby and ask them for advice. They might be able to help you to answer your question.

I applied for it myself over the internet as the Australian High Commission in KL no longer handles student visa. Another example of stupid Australian administration....I went to their embassy and read forms saying Malaysian students are eligible for online application....not compulsory....then I went up to the woman counter only to be told they no longer do it!!!!!!! doh.gif doh.gif doh.gif doh.gif
Australian, first world? Kiss my ass
But heck, if I could go to other country to complete my degree, I would be pleased. So right now, I'm stuck with Oz crapshit.

@Chen Bee Hansern,
I'll give it a try. I have already arranged medical check up without waiting for the stupid Oz case officer...... rclxub.gif rclxub.gif

@pangping1510,

I thought it was simple too, but their website is confusing since they didn't clarify whether the official request to do medical examination is by email or through the application status page.

Anyway, already done my medical examination and thanks for your reply.

Adviseable to have 6 mths before expiry of the passport.

But just to share my experienced.

On my first business trip to UK.

I had 3 mths before my passport expired and only notice it by check in time at klia.

The officer let me check in but inform me about the problem that i might not allowed to enter UK. Since too late to cancelled everything i accept what the officer inform me and pray for my luck.

Luckily, upon arrival at heathrow the only question the immigration officer asked me is the purpose of visit, i said business and she welcome me to UK. sweat.gif

yes, you can do it within one day..

you've 2 option :
1) Manual
- get number and wait for number to be called (they will process your application)
- wait for your number again for the payment (it's random)
- wait for another 2 hours to get a new number for passport collection
- wait for your number, and finally you can begin to fly with your new passport.

2) Kippas (Passport must be chip-enabled)
- goto the machine (Ground Floor and 1st Floor)
- follow the instructions on the machine
- it will dispensed a receipt for your passport collection time
- go to the collection counter to get a number
- wait for your passport..then you are done..

just make sure, you bring all the necessary.
- Current Passport
- Mykad
- Photostate copy of Mykad
- Money

Arrived at 7.03am today at Damansara to make a new passport (my old one expired years ago), I was number 22 there.
Collected Passport at 10.40 am on the same day.

New record?

rclxms.gif Immegration has improved a lot since the last time.!! thumbup.gif

Tips:
1. Download form from the internet, print in 1 page (double sided). Don't worry if most other people's form is green in colour and have barcode. The counter people will stick a barcode sticker in yours.
2. Don't have breakfast yet, since you can have 2 hours breakfast after you have paid RM300. Can bring lappy as well since Starbuck is nearby.
3. Bring your Birth Cert, incase your IC got problem (but may not be necessary).

Going to China this 16 for the first time. Need to apply for a Visa, but is it enough time even though they said 4 to 5 days? Scared that the emphassy will give me hard time since i do not have the flight comfirmation with me, because i am joining the travelling agency in Singapore and documents are not ready yet. And can i summit the visa application form in behalf of my wife since its hard for her to apply for halfday leave to go all the way there?

Another question, i am taking LRT to Jalan Ampang and which station is the nearest to the Chinese emphassy? The Ampang Part Station or the next one? Thank you...

yes you need... but no worries you can take your photo directly at the immigration smile.gif

if it's just for renewal, the wangsa maju branch is highly recommended... my colleague went there last week and it took her less than 1 hour to finish the whole procedure smile.gif

very easy....

basically there is three method of entering Japan (i've used two of them)

1. Visiting relatives/friends
u need letter from your friend, Alien registration card (IC Japan), Passport, Address of your friend. Through this method, u can get 3 month visa, without any confirmed hotel itinerary, but confirmed flight ticket is a must
2. Holiday
- confirmed hotel stay
- confirmed flight
- account statement to ensure you don't go begging for money in Japan
3. Business trips
- business trips lah.

further info, go the Japan Embassy at Stonor street (near Jalan Tun Razak) or go to their website, use Google smile.gif

visa application will take 2-3 days, and would have no problem for u to pick it up after that period if no one from embassy call u.

there is a discount for students, but you must prove that you are going overseas for furthering studies, therefore you'll need a letter from your universities stating that you are a student there, taking what degree etc etc. Personally, i didn't really bother to care about the discount as getting the letters from the college would take weeks, and by the time i waited for it, might as well just pay and get it done.

Renew passport in a day only available at selected branches, not applicable to all branches. About Pusat Bandar Damansara, i have quite lost faith in them as their systems are usually down on Mondays, and the day i went there to do my passport, the whole immigration system was down, and as usual they were promising expediate repairs and that passport processing will resume soon. what a blatant lie, because later they had to shoot themselves in the leg when they announced that the whole system there was down.

Another alternative would be the Subang immigration office. If you'd get there early before 8 (e.g.730) u'd be in about a line of 10 ppl there, and if you want faster, prepare all the documents beforehand (e.g. passport photo, forms etc). most of the people who go there early, somehow is lacking either in picture or incomplete form, and so, your queue is being reduced from less than 10 ppl.

very easy....refer to my previous post.

if u're going for an indefinite period (less than 3 months) use the method 1 - visiting friends.

if u have confirmed flight and hotel itinerary, then use method 2 - holiday

further info refer to http://www.my.emb-japan.go.jp/nhomepg.htm

RM300 and just bring your passport and Mykad, four passport size photos (latest). and ask for passport renewal form. that's about it.

Ah, you can bring the whole kampung with you if you want.

If you go to Immigration at Damansara Town Centre and use the KIPPAS machines located on the Ground Floor,
all u need is the following:

1. One passport size photo;
2. Old passport (machine readable)
3. Mykad
4. RM300

Machine is very user friendly and steps are shown clearly. And also there's someone around to provide guidance if needed.

Basically, the machine will prompt u to insert the passport to be read, followed by yr Mykad, and then scan yr thumbprints. You will need to place yr passport photo in an envelope provided, and deposit it into the machine. Then the last step is to feed money into the machine...RM300 for 32 pages or RM600 for 64 pages. A receipt will be printed out with the time of the application, with instructions to go to Counter 16 upstairs after 2 hours. When u go to Counter 16, you will be given a number and a short wait to collect yr passport.

The operating hours of the machines is from 8:30am - 3:45pm Mondays to Fridays.

Did mine last Friday....application time on receipt was 8:16am, collected new passport before 10:30am!! thumbup.gif

Very impressed with the new efficiency of the Immigration Dept after all those previous experiences having to start queueing early in the morning, filling forms, photostating Mykad, forced to take photo again cos the officer think you look different from yr photos....are all things of the past with this new system.

My passport has 2 years left but i will be going to oversea to study for 3 years (not sure i can I renew overseas).
Can I renew now or apply for new brand one ?

you can renew it from malaysia embassy in other country.

but the best is renew your passport here, get another new copy of 5 years, so that you wil be given a full period length of study leave to remain / visa from the immigration officer.

else they will only give u til the expiry of ur passport, and u have to leave that country by that time, and come back, go through all over again for your 3rd year.

Can I apply Student Visa to travel around the world - work at each stop(country) to earn money to continue to another country and repeat the same thing?

guys.. i dunno if this is the right place to post this question.. but its the closest i can find

i've been in australia for 2 years from 2004.. til end of 2005.. and i was stupid enough not to apply for a PR which i truly regret now.. yes.. its abit too late.. but i wanna apply for the PR now.. can anyone advise me wat to do?

should i just take a month or 2 holiday in aussie and apply onshore? or just apply it offshore? i know i can get faster results onshore compared to offshore which will take ages due to the amount of time wasting on mailing stuff here and there..

anyone who has done this b4.. please advise. thanks

I'm planning to go apply for passport tomolo.
1) My passport already expired in 2001. Do i need to bring my old passport?
2) I haven't take photo yet. If I take in the imigresen Dept tomolo. How much is it? Is it more expensive than to take outside?
3) I will go to Damansara branch. Confirmed can get on that day itself? If cannot, can I go later (about a week later) to collect when I'm on leave?
