Hi Everyone,

Can someone help me?

I have a work permit already and my daughter and husband are coming in on October and I would like to get them a dependent pass.

I already have the documents ready and my employer is approving my request but I do not know where to bring the documents. I would like to know the following:
1. where will i bring those documents?
2. how long will i need to wait before i can get their visa. (because my work location is in Johor so I think I need to file a leave to process these)

Hope someone can help me. I really miss my daughter and I want my family to be together again.

Thanks

I'm afraid you might have to run twice, once is for submitting the documents for your applciation, another is to get the visa when it has been approved.

The usual place to go for this kind of applciation is the immigration office in Putrajaya. But why don't you contact the State Immigration Office and see if they could process it there?

There is a list of offices in Johor on the immigration website, www.imi.gov.my and find the nearest one to you.

Good luck.

My advice is why dont you submit the before they arrive here because Philippines application will sent to Wisma Putra ( Foreign Affairs ) for approval. So once you got the approval you can sent the calling visa to your family allowing them to come.

Hi,

Thanks for all our advice.

I did submit the requirements last September 24. I got the claim slip already and had my daughter send here last tuesday.

From the airport we went straight to JB Immigration (near post office) to claim the visa. But when i got my turn the immigration people told that there is another problem. I need a personal bond...

I really do not know how to do this.Cause the bond needs a malaysian (NRIC required -- to be guarantor). Wahhh, based on the site there was to personal bond for dependent pass...

Know I need to seek help from my collegues to stand as my guarantor... This is the point were i keep on wishing that I got a better employer who would do all this on my behalf.

Hope I can get the bond thing finished by next week.

Thanks all.

Hi,

Gongratulations on reuniting with the family! :)
Normally, your employer should assist you with dependant passes, including bond payment.
The bond for my husband's pass was paid by our HR manager. If your colleagues are reluctant to arrange the bond for you, you may offer to pay it yourself, and ask them just to sign the paper.

As for your daughter, it might be easier and simpler to get her student pass. Depending on the school you will put her (especially if it is a private school), they can fully take care of it for you, against a fee.

Ahni, I never ever had to pay a bond payment for my wife... Is it only the case for husbands?

I guess so. Actually, for the husbands they issue not dependant pass, but a multi-entry social visit pass. Procedure, however, is the same as for dependant pass.

hi patrice,

My daughter is just 1 year and 6 months... so no school for her yet. Just child care.

But on another note. Do child care require student visa? Cause she will be under child care.

Thanks
