How to Apply Malaysian Passport
How to apply Malaysian Passport? This is the question comes to my mind when I want to apply the Malaysian Passport for my son, Zen recently. He is less than 2 years old and he has no MyKid (apparently it ran out of stock) so what and how to apply the Malaysian Passport?
- Find location of Immigration Offices or UTC offices
Find the location of the nearest Immigration offices or UTC (Urban Transformation Centres) near your home or work place.
UTC Pudu Sentral (Puduraya) is one of most convenient and popular UTC offices in Klang Valley. However, you need there very early or else you need to take a long queue.
Thus, I went to Jabatan Imigresen Malaysia at Kompleks Perhentian Kajang which is far out from the city as the crowd wasn’t that bad and the service is quite good. I went on a weekday to beat the crowd.
- What you need to bring to apply Malaysian Passport
Credit to the Malaysian Immigration Department, apply Malaysian Passport is very simple now.
You do not need to fill any forms and you also do not need to take any Passport photos.
Just bring along your MyKad, MyKid (if any), Malaysia Birth Certificate (if you do not have MyKid), you recently expired Malaysian Passport for renewal.
They will take the picture for the passport instantly in the office and save the hassle of taking your Passport photos.
