I am from Pakistan and now working in Penang and have the employment pass.I just want to know the process of obtaining Dependent Visa for my spouse.Are there any agents to help me out?
You're better off doing it yourself. Even if you hire an agent, you'll still have to show up with your wife to process your application.
Different countries have different requirements for the dependent pass. You should check with your embassy and the immigration department to know the exact procedure for your family's visas. For example, I know that Indians dependent Visa have 2 stages while French do not need to go through stage 1. The two stages are
1- Get an approval letter from the applicants embassy for the dependent, which enable him/her to apply for single entry visa.
2- Once in Malaysia, get marriage certificates and other required docs and submit them within 1 month of arrival of the dependent.
Can we call them on visit visa and then proceed the dependent pass application ??
You should check with your embassy to confirm whether you can do that.
im a filipina and my boyfriend is a french expat in malaysia. weve been living togethr for about 7 months now. but i always need to exit the country every 30 days or less. there hasnt been any problem with the immigration but the last time i entered malaysia, the officer started questioning me and told me that its not good to go back and forth every month and that i should apply for a dependent visa. how can i apply for a dependent visa if we are not yet married? thank you for your help!
Visa runs are always a risk.
You should check with the French embassy to see if they can recognize your union. It is called a "companionship certificate" which, once translated, is accepted by the immigration and allows you to apply for a dependent pass. It worked for most applicants I know of. But sometimes the immigration has special requirements for dependents from other ASEAN countries. Worth checking with the embassy though.
I want to know how long it takes to process the work permit and the dependency visa. Im from Botswana and already in Malaysia on social pass with my son.
I work for an US Multinational company and am handling sales for the SE Asia region and India. I am planning to relocate to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with my family (spouse and 2 children aged 6 & 12). I also intend to take my father (aged 74) to live with us in KL since he is dependent on me (I am the only son). My mother passed away 2 years ago.
I request you to kindly let me know if my father can live with us and what type of visa would be required for him to stay with us. I am sure taking my spouse and children should not be a problem as per Malaysian Immigration laws.
Thank you very much for your assistance.
Depends on your application. It can take a couple of weeks to much longer if your application is incomplete or the immigration department has issues with it. You should check the wiki for more info on all this.
You are right that your spouse and children should not be a problem.
Unfortunately, I don't know of a program where your father can be considered your dependent in Malaysia. Can he apply for MM2H ?
Thanks for your reply.
MM2H would be too expensive for us.
Can my father stay in Malaysia on a long term visit visa ? or can you suggest any other visa or method ?
Unfortunately I have not heard of another long term visit pass for EP parent dependents.
MM2H is the only one I know of.
i am from philippines, my husband is an expat and is applying for my dependent pass in malaysia, i have children his step children, can i bring them along with teh dependent visa been granted? if not, what should i do? thank you
Did he adopt his step-children ?
Can anyone let me know about : if my child is admitted (Pre school and 3 years old)in any school in KL in that case, whether parents are granted dependent visa or not?
Usually it's the other way around.
A child is a dependent.
