Maid Work Permit Sticker Transfer to New Renewal Passport

I decided to renew my maid passport here in Kuala Lumpur instead of waiting for her to return back from her 2 months hometown leave.

So when she returns, only leave 1 month to settle with her work permit renewal.

To avoid hassle from my pass encounter I decided to renew her passport 15 months before expiry (due to expiry date which will lapse less than a year if I were to renew her work permit upon her returning).

After settle passport renewal, just realised that I bought her flight ticket before her renewal. Luckily during booking with Airasia to Surabaya, Indonesia i didn’t need to enter her passport number.. Alhamdulillah…

But only one thing need to settle, when I ask employee at KBRI they said no need to transfer her valid work permit sticker to new passport. Just clip together old and new passport and show to Immigration at departure.

hmmm… I decided to not 100% believe it and went to Immigration at Bandar Damansara. The friendly immigration staff told that I need to transfer sticker because once new passport release the old passport consider expired and not valid. Only one valid passport can a person carry at a time.

My maid permit still valid for around 6 months. I have two options;

  1. renew (but will waste that 6 months validity), 0r
  2. transfer sticker permit at new passport with a cost.

I chose option 2. Below i share the costing and documents needed for this option.

cost (RM200.00)

  1. Visa Multiple Entry (RM15.00)
  2. Lanjutan PL(KS) (RM60.00)
  3. Proses PLKS Pembantu Rumah (RM125)

Required Documents

  1. Letter request (Permohonan sticker permit kerja berikutan pembaharuan passport pembantu asing)
  2. Letter authorisation (for representative)
  3. copy of work permit (old)
  4. copy of old passport (front and back)
  5. copy of new passport (front and back)

This process took around 2 hours (subject to crowd of the day). That’s all. Thank you.

Get online Queue Number before Renew Indonesian Maid Passport – 2019

The longest term for passport you can have is maximum of 5 years. So 5 years it is … the hassle that i need to overcome – of all tedious process for my Indonesian Maid passport renewal.

This round ‘year 2019’ am a bit relieved knowing that they have simplify the processes but still after i jadi mangsa dulu… 🙁

If you want to reduce hassle may take one or two tips i share down here >>

At first I went to embassy to proceed with renewal of employment contract ( but noticed lots of people queuing at door 1.

Some of them were not allow to go in for passport renewal because they didn’t have queue number “angka giliran’.

haha… nasib i observe surrounding. Mula lah gabra.. ehh how to get that number, and yang silapnya ‘ulat-ulat’ kat tepi tu mula approach i….. Kak kalau mau no gilirannya saya boleh tolong dapatkan… sekarang tiada nombor sudah lagi sebulan baru nombor ada. Kena cepat dapatkan nombor … hmm apelagi panik la.. nanti kalau tak dapat dah satu hal maid nak balik kampung passport kena perbaharui.

Kitorang pun macam anak itik ikut diorang kat kedai bebetul tepi parking exit tu. Diorang berlakon ala-ala busy mintak dokumen, depan PC, konon ambil gambar maid guna handphone submit online. Bayar RM70 okay!!!

Rupanya you need to register online to get queue number. Balik rumah try google… alahai.. boleh buat sendiri online .. and its free… omg! (tepuk dahi).. bape ramai la mangsa dorang tadi. modus operandi cakap no dah habis… dorang ada reserve number. Bengong pergi percaya buat apa.

Embassy won’t allow any walk in visitors/ guests/ employer without queue number to enter. Dont dream they let you in … go home and get your appointment date online. You have to come on the right scheduled date and time with printed QR Code.
