ME to issue certificates of identity for undocumented migrant workers in Malaysia


The Malaysian government has announced that undocumented migrant workers shall go back home by paying a 500 Ringgit fine between 1 March and the end of December, and the Myanmar Embassy to Malaysia said it would issue a certificate of identity (C of I) through verification.
Undocumented foreigners in Malaysia shall leave the country within 14 days by paying a 500 Ringgit fine at immigration offices along with a passport or C of I and return air ticket on a specified date from 1 March to 31 December 2024, announced the Malaysian government.
That is why Myanmar nationals who have no passport can apply for a C of I at the embassy in person so that they can return to Myanmar within the deadline, and a C of I will be issued if they are verified Myanmar nationals, said the Myanmar Embassy in Kuala Lumpur.
“At present, Malaysia has intensively cracked down on illegal workers. This announcement seems more arrests will follow after the deadline has expired. It makes workers anxious. They even don’t want to live without legal documents, though. They came here because they want to work,” said a Myanmar migrant worker in Malaysia.
Myanmar nationals can enquire about consular services by texting the embassy’s WhatsApp No +60 1125105774, said the embassy. — MT/ZS/ED
