My first visit pass application was granted only a three month single entry visa. This visa was either issued by Malaysian High Commission in Singapore or Indonesia. I chose Singapore; the processing fee was SGD7. After this first exit and re-enter to Malaysia, I can then apply for my visit pass extension. Form Imm 55 for extension of visit pass and Form Imm 38 for visa application are required.
My husband has to accompany me for the submission of the Forms. A declaration letter (Surat Akuan) that we are still married issued by a Commissioner for Oaths has to be attached.
For my first extension application, I was given a three month social visit pass (the processing fee was RM 100) and re-entry visa (a single exit and re-entry visa cost RM 15). For second extension, I was granted another three month social visit pass (processing fee was RM 150). Again I had to apply for a re-entry visa because I needed to go back to my ex-company to assist them in the project I was handling at the time I resigned.
After three successive three month visit passes, I was eligible for the six month visit pass (the processing fee, surprisingly was only RM 90). The re-entry visa was also “upgraded” to multiple instead of single with same processing fee. After the six month visit pass, I was eligible for one year visit pass application. The fee is RM 90 too. After 5 renewal, I got the 4 years social visit pass together with a multiple entry visa for RM 90/year and RM15/year respectively. :)
Lately I heard that they have terminated the extension of visit pass for duration of more than 1 year (since July 2008, I think).
