VoWiFi Also known as WiFi Calling, VoWiFi allows you to make and receive calls over WiFi thus letting you stay connected even when there is limited network coverage or none at all! So I got question that can we use WiFi-Calling in another country to avoid Digi International Roaming Charges? & The simple answer is yes, we can skip roaming charges with Digi WiFi-Calling.  


If you're planning to travel out of Malaysia to Study or Meet your loved ones or spend holidays abroad, then now you can use your Local Malaysian cell number to make & receive calls back to Malaysia with Digi's VoWiFi Calling Feature. We can avoid International Roaming Charges Digi VoWiFi Calling & I'm gonna show you how to set up Digi VoWiFi Calling before departure, there are fairly simple settings that should work with WiFi-Calling compatible smartphones. check out the list of smartphones supported by Digi.

  1. Digi VoWiFi Compatible Device (List of Supported Devices)
  2. Activate International Roaming
  3. Activate Digi VoWiFi by Calling Digi Helpline
  4. Enable WiFi-Calling
  5. Try Test Call before leaving Malaysia

Activate International Roaming

  2. You can activate the International Roaming (IR) by going to MyDigi app >> Click Navigation >> Subscription & Turn on the toggle button to Activate IR.

Note that you must buy a validity of 1 year to avoid line termination otherwise, your line may be terminated after 60 days if you have not topped up your prepaid line. (Note: 365 days validity package may not be available, depending on the prepaid version of sim card)

Method 1 to subscribe to Super Long Life is through *128# menu >>Account >> Talktime Services >> Super Long Life & you will be charged RM 38).

Method 2 from MyDigi app Click Reload >>Validity >> 1 Year >> & Click Confirm.

Activate Digi VoWiFi

  2. Chat with Live Agent and request to activate Vo-LTE
Note: For more information visit the Digi Help Centre.

How To Enable Wifi-Calling

  1. Navigate to and open the Phone app.
  2. Tap More options (the three vertical dots), and then tap Settings.
  3. Tap Wi-Fi Calling, and then tap the switch to turn the feature on. If you receive a popup asking you to enter your Emergency contact information, review and enter the requested information, and then tap Save.

  5. On some phones, you can also enable Wi-Fi Calling from the Quick settings panel. Swipe down from the top of the screen using two fingers, and then tap the Wi-Fi Calling icon to turn it on.
Note: Follow the on-screen instructions to set the preferred network, For some carriers, you may need to set up Roaming network preference or When Roaming. The Roaming Network settings are only available when the Wi-Fi Calling feature is on.

Try Test Call Before Leaving Malaysia

Once you’ve enabled Wi-Fi calling, connect to wifi & you will see the  VoWiFi   Icon appeared at the top signal bar of your android phone.

Here is a screenshot from Huawei P30:

Samsung Galaxy VoWiFi Icon: 

Hurray that's it! we are ready to receive calls on VoWiFi but the question is how we know that our call is going through WiFi-Calling? to skip Roaming Cost. let me share the screenshot of the call I have received from Malaysia while I'm connected to the Pakistan Roaming Network of Telenor.

Click on the image to enlarge
All the highlighted calls in the image above showing the  Wi-Fi  Icon, which means that I'm not being charged by carried (Digi). It’s possible this trick won’t work perfectly every time, but as long as you can verify Wi-Fi calling is working before you leave, it should “just work fine.” 
Keep in mind that any international numbers you call are also subject to Digi's international long-distance rates. So keep updated on Digi's International Call rates.

Connect to WiFi Hotspot

Most of the airports have free WiFi spots, and those spots fairly work great for WiFi calling, which does not need a lot of WiFi speed but does need a strong connection to the internet modem. Some WiFi hotspots will require you to sign in/create accounts and agree to their terms and conditions. Once you’re connected, your phone should automatically turn back into WiFi calling mode.

We will share another tutorial for Umobile & Hotlink/Maxis VoWiFi to help our readers to understand WiFi-Calling benefits while travelling abroad. peace & blessing bodies :)

I have written tutorials on Immigration, Fomema & MayTravelPass to travel to & from Malaysia, the lack of knowledge regarding application submission & process force them to search for help online & I receive many queries on how to check fomema status, work permit verification & permit renewal & delivery status. So I have tried my best to help them on messenger & write more informative tutorials.


There are 3 ways to submit your worker's permit renewal, Immigration counter (may not serving due to COVID-19 Pandemic), ePLKS & Myeg (Government's Official e-Service Provider). If you have submitted the renewal at Immigration Counter then you don't have to worry about the verification but in case you have hired a third party such as Visa Consultant or Travel Agent then you may worry about the status of the renewal (we suggest that don't hire street agents they will spoil everything).


In this post, we are going to talk about Myeg permit renewal Status, delivery & learn more about the status shown by Myeg  & compare them with the Immigration website (if your application is approved by Immigration).


What Myeg Really Do?

Myeg provides services such as renewal of Vehicle Road Tax, Mykad Replacement, Pay JPJ Summons & Foreign Workers permit renewal.

I always help my Employer to submit the renewal of my work permit & save RM 1000 through Myeg without the hassle and the unique part of the service is I can track every stage of the renewal.

Let's have a look at the Delivery Status (Myeg & Verification with Immigration):

Note: Prepare your Passport # & Company ROC #.


1. Go to https://www.myeg.com.my/check-delivery-status

2.  Choose Immigration Foreign Worker, Input your Passport # & Company ROC (Registration #)

3. & Click Check Status.

You will get the result something like this (if your application is approved by the Immigration Department):


Now we will take look into the Immigration system to know the status there:

1. Goto https://eservices.imi.gov.my/myimms/PRAStatus?lang=en

2. Enter Company ROC/Registration # & Press Search Button



If your application is approved that means Myeg will make payment to immigration to get sticker printing approval. You can check the text in the yellow area above to know more about the status definition.


There are many reasons for unsuccessful permit renewals but the common problems are:

  1. The permit expiry date is less than 7 days (if renewing from Myeg).
  2. The balance of the passport validity is less than 1 year.
  3. Passport has expired.
  4. FOMEMA medical check-up failed.
  5. No valid insurance.
  6. A foreign worker or employer is blacklisted.


Now we will go to the second status after making Levi payment.


If the application status shows the Pay/Bayar that means your application has been approved by Immigration Department & Myeg just paid the levy & they are now processing to print your permit sticker, but the status will remain the same "Processing".


When they process the sticker printing the both Myeg & Immigration will change the status of the application into their system. 


The Status should be something like this:

Myeg: "Pending Delivery"

Immigration: "Print"

Note: If your company is appointed the representative(s) of the company must be a Malaysian with a valid MyKad & email address. The representative must be present at the office at the arranged time and provide their MyKad for biometric thumbprint verification.

Let's take look at the status Screenshot:


You will receive the permits within 4 working days for all successful renewals provided that the records are found in the database and upon receipt of approval from the Immigration Department.

In case they are not able to verify the data, a delay is to be expected as the records will be forwarded to Immigration to be re-verified.


& now take a look at the status on Immigration Website:


Congratulations your permit renewal application have been completed successfully :) 


Now let us check the last status from Myeg after the delivery:


That's it :)


All deliveries will be done by Myeg own Logistics and Customer Service Officers. Please ensure the foreign worker passport is available during the delivery for Myeg to paste the renewed permit on the worker's passports. Employer/Boss will also be required to produce MyKad to confirm acknowledgement of the permits.


I hope the explanation above help you to understand the process of renewal, delivery & verification of your work permit. Peace & Blessings bodies :)
