Malaysia Launches Immigration E-Filing System
(Bristol, UK) - The Malaysian Immigration Department (MID) launched a new electronic filling web
portal (for online submission of employment pass applications) on 10 March 2014. This portal will be
introduced to business entities throughout the year based on their industry sector.The new filing system
will generate additional administrative burdens and may initially present technical challenges, reports
Nair & Co. a provider of global HR services for companies with international operations.
The new system will be utilized for submission of Employment Pass applications to the MID. In certain
cases, MID may require companies to also submit paper filings. It is important to note that paper
applications are mandatory for companies applying for Professional Visit Passes, and having Multimedia
Super Corridor (MDeC) or Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) status.
Further clarification on the new system is expected, as MID has not announced all necessary details or
Nair & Co. advises companies operating in Malaysia to monitor the progress and updates related to the
immigration e-filing system and develop internal processes adopting the new e-filing system.
