Malaysian Visa about to expire in Old passport and Employment pass extension

I am Jayakrishnan. I had submitted my extension of employment pas to Visa Unit in University of Malaya. My visa is endorsed in my old passport which got reissued due to expiry date. My visa will expire on 4 January 2017. Kindly advise me what to do in this context ?. Do I need to take a special pass ?. Or transfer my about to expire visa to the new passport ?. I am waiting for my extension of my employment pass. Really worried..

Hi. You should give a call to University Malaya and the immigration department.
Your situation is not uncommon and they should be able to answer your query easily.

Thank you for the reply. I just visited the Visa unit here in University Malaya and told them my issue. They told me that they will email me for the update. I will have to wait for their email. I am also trying to call Immigration Department. After tomorrow, my visa is expired so that I cannot work, until my new visa is approved. That is the main issue.

Thank you all for the comments and support. My issue was solved today and I received my new employment pass and Visa effective from 5 jan 2017 onwards and happy that I could work here and could report on duty from 5 jan onwards. My problem was solved as follows. Visa unit asked me to submit the photocopy of both old and new passport full pages and also a form for transferring the old visa to the new passport. I had to wait two weeks for getting mail for submitting my original passport which was approved for visa by immigration Department. Soon after getting call from visa unit, I submitted my both passports to visa unit. They given me receipt which I can use as equivalent to passport until I get my passport. They told me email will come once passport is ready for collection within 2 weeks. I waited until today then mail came for collection of passport. Luckily enough the date endorsed in the passport was from 5 Jan 2017 so that I could report on duty from the next day of expiry of my visa so that there is no gap in the profile. Now I am happy and problem solved. Waiting for my previous month salary which was on hold due to this issue. Thanks.
