Beginning of June 2013, Alex and I decided to go for passport renewal when we realized that our passport has expired. I’ve heard about the service of renewing passport via kiosks…(only at selected place in Klang Valley) is fast and easy. Therefore I google for information and address before going there.
Read HERE….the writer got her passport renewed and ready within 90minutes via kiosk.
Well prepared ourselves with a new copy of passport photo, a photocopy IC (front and back) and our old passport. Penuh bersemangat, Alex and I reached;
Jabatan Imigresen Malaysia, Negeri Selangor, (Cawangan Subang),
Blok A, Plaza Glomac, Jalan SS7/19, Kelana Jaya,
47301 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
Tel : 03-78830975 / 78850149 / 78850301
Faks : 03-78850243
in the afternoon. Went over to the information counter to inquire about the kiosk. Then only was told that they has stopped the service for renewing passport via kiosks kononnya the government has implemented new passport. With different quality (effective since May 2013). I was damn pissed off lor…. Means I gotto get a number, queue and renew via counter. Want to get number also finished. So many people want to travel meh……….
Forget it…I then changed my mind to renew our passport at the Immigration Dept. in Seremban. We went there early before 8.30am. Wasn’t crowded…may be cos its still early. Get it done within 20 minutes from getting number, waiting time and to payment. Then we were given a collection receipt for our new passport. Guess what… 4 hours to be ready!! “So EFFICIENT lah”!! I do not want to waste time…I decided to come back another day to collect my new passport. After all the collection receipt is valid for 3 months.
RM100.00 for 2 years
RM300.00 for 5 years
Kindly refer to photo #1 and photo #2…both are source from www.imi.gov.my.
Kinda confused right. One saying ‘blue background’ and the other one saying ‘white background’. Anyway…..the current photo specification is ‘white background’. Do take note.
Went to collect our passport on another day (you are not allowed to collect on behalf of other person) at the collection counter. Remember to bring along the collection receipt. It was quick. However I got freak out!!!!
New passport (with embedded microchip) can visit Japan without the need of applying visa. (Read HERE)
**My new passport is so ugly! Luckily its just for 2 years. That’s all about ghost.**
