Hello everyone

But Embassy kept my visa on Hold because, They need Certified True Copy. Could you Please give me the details about Certified True Copy. And after submission after that Document, How many days will it take for getting the Visa from Embassy.

Kindly provide me the Information.
Really appreciate you suggestions.

Thanks.

There is not enough information provided to assist.
Firstly, embassies do not approve work permits - can you provide the Malaysian authority name which is processing the application and which Malaysian state will you be working in?
Also, a Visa is for entering Malaysia whereas a Pass is to stay for differing purposes, e.g. Work. Would both be applicable for you - depends on your nationality? A Visa can be issued by the Embassy but a Pass can only be issued in Malaysia.
As for the CTC, what documents are said to require a CTC?
Your HR should have provided some guidelines. Please do seek more clarity using the questions above.

Hi
I have been offered a job in a University in Malaysia. The HR has made my DP10 application which has been approved. They have now made the DP11 application but they informed me that it is pending approval and I need to be in Malaysia to get it approved and then get my Passport endorsed with work permit. Now, I am currently in UK doing a training here before I join my job there in Malaysia. I went to the Malaysia High Commission in London to get an entry pass but was told I need approval from the immigration dept in Malaysia. Do they mean the DP10 approval? What is this approval? They refused to give me a social visit visa to go to Malaysia to complete the work permit process and get it stamped. How should I proceed? Please help.

East or West Malaysia?
What is your nationality please?
Do you have a UK work or residence permit?
I would need the above to assist further...

FYI for Malaysia:

  • Visa - granted to allow entry, e.g. Single Entry Visa, Multiple Entry Visa
    • Pass - granted to allow stay, Social Visit Pass, Employment Pass

Hi eunicelyh
Thank you for your reply. I am an Indian national, I dont have a current work permit in UK (I used to have previously as I have worked here for 2 years). The location is Iskandar in Johor but today I came to know that DP10 has been approved only by IMEC. When does Malaysian Immigration approve it? Is it a seperate application process? The officials here are asking for approval from Malaysian immigration. Can I go with a social visit visa and then get the work permit? Is there any other risks than the journey performed charges? Thanks in advance.

If you don't have a form of work or resident permit in the UK, you probably cannot apply for the Single Entry Visa (SEV) there hence will need to head back to India for the SEV.

If your work permit has been approved for DP10 only, and you required the SEV, the company should have applied for the DP11 and request for the Visa With Reference (VWR) / Visa Dengan Rujukan Letter thereafter. With the VWR Letter which states that your work permit is approved, you can get SEV and enter Malaysia.

Alternatively, you can get the SEV without the support of the VWR Letter to enter Malaysia for social purposes until such time the work permit is granted - this is when you will need to pay an additional MYR550 for the Journey Performed Visa. Just need to make sure that the Social Visit Pass granted to you will have sufficient validity to complete the DP11 stage.

Hi Eunicelyh
Thanks a lot for your valuable information. That was most helpful. May I ask one final doubt? I am now planning to apply for a SEV without reference. So do I have to go back to India even for this SEV (without reference) if I dont have a residence/work permit in UK?

Hi i would like to ask. My employer filed my stage 1 Employment Pass using my old passport and gave me 2 years pass. But my passport will expire in 12 months. Can I submit my renew passport so immigration can Issue me 2 years pass.
