Online Malaysian Passport Status Inquiry


Good news to all Malaysian Passport Holders..

Starting NEXT WEEK, Malaysian passport holders can check online http://www.imi.gov.my/ their status whether they are allowed to travel outside Malaysia. Up until today, passport holders can ONLY know that they are forbidden to leave the country when they were stopped at the airport's immigration OR if they do early status check-up at the imigration's office. By having this system, travellers can actually safe-plan their journey without having to worry that their journey has to be cancelled at the very last minute.

The news was announced today in Berita Harian.

Quoted from Berita Harian 3rd February 2009:

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia negara pertama di dunia mempunyai sistem pangkalan data yang membolehkan pemegang pasport antarabangsa negara ini memeriksa sama ada mereka dilarang ke luar negara atau sebaliknya hanya menerusi laman web.

Ketua Pengarah Imigresen, Datuk Mahmood Adam, berkata perkara itu dimaklumkan Interpol baru-baru ini apabila jabatannya mengadakan pertemuan dengan organisasi berkenaan.

Katanya, sistem pangkalan data berkenaan boleh mula diakses serta digunakan mulai minggu hadapan dan rakyat negara ini yang mempunyai sebarang rancangan ke luar negara dinasihatkan memeriksa status mereka terlebih dulu di laman web Imigresen di http://www.imi.gov.my/

"Sebelum ini, rakyat negara ini yang mahu mendapatkan pengesahan sama ada mereka dilarang ke luar negara atau sebaliknya perlu pergi sendiri ke Jabatan Imigresen atau lebih malang hanya mengetahui mereka dilarang berbuat demikian sebaik mahu mendaftar masuk menaiki penerbangan.


"Menerusi sistem pangkalan data berkenaan, pemegang pasport hanya perlu memasukkan nombor kad pengenalan masing-masing saja sebelum dimaklumkan sama ada bebas ke luar negara atau tidak.

"Bagi memastikan rahsia pemegang pasport tidak diceroboh, kita tidak akan mendedahkan alasan jika mereka (pemegang pasport) membuat pemeriksaan melalui laman web dan didapati dilarang ke luar negara," katanya ketika dihubungi, di sini, semalam.
