Are you working in Malaysia and trying to find cheap calling rates to call your home country then you're reading the right post, we have gathered some exciting and cheap International Direct Dialling (IDD) packages for your convenience to choose from, at Spicy Blogging we ensure when loved ones travelling internationally, they should remain connected with family & loved one back home while maintaining budget call packages.


The Malaysian telecommunications market is a thriving mobile market with four large network operators, an incumbent fixed-line provider with a near-monopoly and the overall market underpinned by strong economic fundamentals. The Telecom sector in Malaysia offers more cheapest IDD packages as compared to the Middle East market where more than 25 million migrant workers have jobs.


Major Telecom service providers in Malaysia offer a WiFi Calling feature while roaming, This would help you save on roaming call charges as long as the WiFi Calling feature is working. WiFi Calling has been offered by U Mobile 5 years ago back in 2016. Digi also introduced the feature in 2017. Besides having better quality calls at home or at the office, another advantage of WiFi Calling is that you can make “local calls” when you’re overseas. However, Maxis’ states that VoWiFi is not available when you’re roaming.


But do WiFi Calling offered by Pakistan Telcom service providers? the answer is simply not yet, but Jazz & Telenor introduced Voice over LTE (VoLTE) last year and it was the 1st of the 5 major telcos to do so. With VoLTE, you can make and receive voice calls at higher quality while maintaining a 4G connection.


We hope and advise Jazz and all other service providers to offer a WiFi Calling feature to Overseas Pakistanis to call their home country at local rates instead of buying very high-cost IDD calling packages. while they're roaming.

Now here we will share some IDD calling packages from Malaysia to Pakistan.

Voice Over LTE (VoLTE) also called Voice Over 4g network offers the perfect Connectivity solution for the current 4G network’s shortcomings, the traditional calling technology in which the user lost the network connectivity if receives a phone call but thanks to VoLTE technology which replaced the old calling technology to listen to call over 4G network, which means you can use the data while having a phone call.

Telenor Pakistan is one of the leading players in the cellular market launched the VoLTE technology in Jan 2019 for OPPO & Realme smartphones and now the network has extended its VoLTE service to selected Samsung phones.

In the race of the fast-growing digital world, after OPPO & Realme Telenor Pakistan is expanding its VoLTE services to the maximum number of users from across the nation by involving all major mobile phone manufacturers in adopting the VoLTE technology.


Why do we need VoLTE?

The question may pop up here why do we require VoLTE Technology? The simple and easiest description of the importance of VoLTE can be understood from the following real-world scenario:

Suppose you are making online payments and the phone/system is in any critical phase e.g. generating O.T.P. and at the same time your phone rings up.


To receive a request from the cellular network for ringing, the phone has to switch from LTE/4G mode to lower bands like 3G/2G etc. During this switching, the internet on phone gets an interrupt. This interrupt may be unnoticeable for humans but the online payment methods mind this and your transactions may be unsuccessful.


Similarly in another scenario when you are downloading some files over the internet, this switching from LTE to 3G/2G may get an interrupt and affect the downloading.


If you have supported OPPO, Realme, Vivo or Samsung phone then you can activate the VoLTE to experience seamless network connectivity. Follow the steps below to activate the VoLTE. 


How to Activate VoLTE

Contact your mobile carrier to activate the 4G and VoLTE functions for your SIM card. If both the primary and secondary SIM card trays of a dual-SIM phone support 4G and VoLTE, 4G and VoLTE can be enabled for both SIM cards.

Do you want to send your foreign worker back home legally? then don't forget to apply for Check Out Memo (COM) at ePLKS Portal, If your worker’s employment is ending (end of contract or termination), you will be required to submit a COM at Immigration to remove her employment records from you. Failure to apply for a COM will also result in a fine, especially when you want to hire another foreign worker & your previously hired worker may be blacklisted to enter Malaysia for not less than 5 years. 
The employer should ensure that the foreign employees return to their country of origin via the requested exit point on the date stipulated in the COM. If the employer fails to apply for the COM, the foreign workers are still considered to be under his employment and the employer is still responsible for the foreign workers.

Before the lunch of the ePLKS Portal, employers have to visit the nearest Jabatan Immigration (JIM) to apply for COM but after the lunch of the ePLKS Portal, you can apply right from your office table. 

  1.  Goto https://imigresen-online.imi.gov.my/plks/main
  2. Log in using your User ID & Password
  3. Goto eCOM (located at the top menu bar)
  4. Input the worker's passport number, select the nationality from the dropdown menu Finally, Click Search (Cari)

    10. Document or Passport Expiry Date

    If all the information is up to date go ahead and fill up the required inputs in the next section (Information for Check Out Memo (eCOM)).

    4. Date of Exit or Date of departure from Malaysia as per ticket
    5. Select the name of the airport or checkpoint of exit (in our case it's KL International Airport (KLIA)). 
    6. Type of transport (in our case it's By Air).
    7. Destination Country

    9. lastly Name of the Airline/Trasport Agent (in our case It's Malindo Air)

  7. Now prepare the Passport & Ticket Booking (Flight/Feri/bus or train).


  8. Select the document name from the dropdown, click Choose File and click upload (Muat Naik), remember you can only upload 1 file at a time.

  9. List of original documents that need to be uploaded for the reference of the Malaysian Immigration Department:

    1) Copy of Passport

    2) Copy of Transportation Ticket. example: Plane/Ferry/Bus Ticket

    Uploaded documents must be less than 250 kb in size.

    *Only files with PDF, JPEG & PNG file types are allowed to be uploaded.

  10. If all the documents are uploaded successfully the list of the documents will be shown just below the upload sections.

  11. Now click on all the checkboxes to accept the terms and conditions for the application and click submit (Hantar).

  12. Popup window will ask to reconfirm the submission, if all the information is perfect click submit button.

That's all for now, It will most likely say that the application has been submitted for approval, You can find all your submitted applications by going to Status Application (Status Permohonan) in your ePLKS Portal. 
After getting approval print out 3 copies of the eCOM approval letter, 2 copies will be attached to the worker's passport & 1 copy for the employer's record for future reference. 

I hope the guide helps the user of the ePLKS Portal, don't share your suggestions & comments. Do let us know if something is missing, we will update the guide if needed. Until next time Peace & Blessing to all.

  4. & pending medical reports.

These are the common reasons you can apply eSP for, You may need to apply to Check Out Memo (eCOM) if you're going to apply for eSP for the Purpose of "Making Arrangement to Leave the Country".


Today I'm going to share the practical process with our readers that how you can apply for eSP without visiting Immigration Office. So let's get started.

  9. Now Click on the eSP button, on the next page we need to select the reason for eSP and upload the necessary documents;
  10. Click on image to enlarge
    1. In case an employee preparing to leave the country (don't forget to apply to eCOM for this reason);
    2. 2nd reason is for the Fomema Examinate report pending or you have appealed against the unsuitable result;
    3. Pending Passport renewal of employee (prepare the letter/acknowledgement receipt from the Embassy or High commission

    5. Select if the temporary employment permit is pending for renewal & you wish to renew after eSp approval.
  11. Now we will upload the mandatory documents and submit the application for approval, take a look at the screenshot below:
  12. In our case, we have a reason for eSP "Making Arrangement to Leave the Country", so we have to prepare the flight ticket and bio-data page of the employee's passport;
  13. Upload the necessary documents and acknowledge all the regulations and agreement by clicking all 3 checkboxes and finally click submit (Hantar). 
If you wish to book a flight ticket don't forget to visit our flights portal, or live chat with us for assistance.

Approval takes approximately 5 working days but may take longer, depending on the traffic flow and Immigration Branch where your file is being handled, for example, if your company address is Johor Bharu then the application will be referred to Immigration Johor Bharu for eSP to be issued.

Next, we will make the payment if got approval, I will try to share a separate post for the eSP payment guide. Thanks for reading, don't forget to share your suggestions or let us know if something is missing, we're more than happy to welcome your comment as well. Peace & Blessings! :)
