Malaysia Passport - Checking of Travel Status

Recently Immigration Department of Malaysia (Jabatan Imigresen Malaysia) has imposed a policy to prohibit some Malaysian from travelling abroad. That means their Malaysia passports are invalid of travelling oversea. It is mainly due to a great number of Malaysian do not pay back their PTPTN loan or income tax. According to newspapers, there are about 13% of Malaysia passport holders under black list. Hence it is better that you check your traveling status before you subscribe to any tour package or business trip, avoiding unnecessary disappointment, especially at the time before boarding in the airport.
