Myanmar nationals who plan to return with a Certificate of Identity (C of I) card are required to apply for an exit pass without fail as the Malaysian government has been relieving fines for C of I holders, the Myanmar Embassy in Malaysia announced on 21 May.
The Operasi campaign to arrest undocumented foreigners has been accelerated, according to some Myanmar nationals in Malaysia. During that time, the Myanmar embassy made this announcement urging people to apply for the exit pass without fail.
If Myanmar nationals are arrested in an Operasi before their departure date from Malaysia, they must present their valid passport or C of I paper from the embassy, air ticket, receipt of fine payment to the Malaysian Immigration and the exit pass which allows them to leave Malaysia, and upon presentation of these documents to the official concerned, they will be exempted from arrest.
A 500-ringgit fine and a 100-ringgit fee for an exit pass are to be paid at the Malaysian Immigration Offices only by credit or debit cards. For enquiries regarding consular services, Myanmar nationals in Malaysia are advised to contact the embassy’s WhatsApp number +60 11 2510 5774 by text message. — Htet Oo Maung/ZN/ED
