What’s the procedure for PR?

  • Go to the “Permit Masuk” counter at the Pass and Permit division at the immigration branch where you applied for your LTVSP.
  • Get a number ticket and wait your turn.
  • You will be required to show your passport and all your previous LTVSP in order for the immigration officer to verify your eligibility.
  • If you are eligible, the officer will pass you the checklist and application forms.
  • Kindly note that the forms are in BM and it would be best to fill in the form in BM.

Below are documents required to be submitted as listed on the checklist:

  1. Entry Permit Application Form (IM.4)
  2. Form (IMM.270)
  3. Passport sized photo with blue background: You will need 4 copies. One picture will be placed on the ‘Surat Akuan Sumpah Perkahwinan’ Form (Declaration of Marriage). You should also bring a photo of your Malaysian spouse.

It is recommended to get the documents ready before you visit the immigration office. But unlike the LTSVP, you do not have to visit the immigration too early because the queue should not be very long as there are not many people who are eligible to apply for PR in Malaysia.

You then submit the PR documents at the State Immigration Department. After submission, both you and your spouse have to wait for the Interview Call, then another longer wait for the Police check. You can track the progress on the Immigration website.
