What is a Special Pass?

A Special Pass is a discretionary permit issued by Malaysian Immigration for a period of 30 days to allow your worker to legally remain in the country after the expiry of her work permit. It is commonly applied for when employers are waiting for a new worker(s) to arrive. You may apply for the special pass up to two times. The second application will require more justification. Each Special Pass will cost RM 100. 

How to apply for a Special Pass? 

  1. Find out which State Immigration Office issued your worker’s permit (usually written on the work permit) 
  2. Visit the Immigration Office with your worker’s original passport and letter stating the intention of your application. 
  3. Make payment of RM100 to Immigration. Currently, only card payments are accepted. 
  4. The process is usually completed on the same day.
