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.

  3. Enable VoLTE by turning on the VoLTE HD calls switch.

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)

    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)).

  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.
  13.

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.

  1. Pending Temporary Employment Pass Renewal;

  3. Pending Passport Renewal;
  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.


If you haven't registered for ePLKS Portal ID you can follow our guide for ePLKS Portal ID Registration.

Got your ePLKS Portal ID? Continue to apply eSP by following the below steps:


How to Apply eSP Using IMMI ePLKS Portal

  5. Input the required field and click the search button (Cari);
  6. Click on image to enlarge

  7. Next, the fetched data will be shown in the table just below the search table;
  8. Click on image to enlarge

    Note that the eSP application is only applicable if your employee's temporary employment permit is expired otherwise, you need to submit the temporary employment permit renewal and you will see the update (Kemaskini) button appear instead of eSP

  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
    4. Pending Kementerian Dalam Negeri's (KDN) approval, this category is not meant for Temporary Employment holders, only choose this reason if applicable. you must prepare the letter of Pending KDN approval;
    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! :)

Malaysia Immigration Department started to Digitalize its services with the Vision of Digital Malaysia,  MyEG was authorized to renew worker permits in 2013 by Immigration Malaysia, and MyEG was also appointed to register undocumented migrants in September 2014 although actual registration started a year later in September 2015. 


During the April 2015 parliament sitting, former deputy home minister Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar pledged that the government will set up its own online system to manage foreign workers' & Maid permits, instead of relying on MyEG.


When Dr Mahatir came to power again he criticized the way the previous Govt. handle Immigration Services and initiated reforms to provide direct services to Employers through the official website as well as over the counter. In the first phase, Immigration allows to renew the work permits through counter and later launch the official Immigration Online portal and started to provide work permits renewal, checkout memos, and special passes online under the ePLKS system. 


In this post, we will share the step-by-step guide to registering for the ePLKS portal, registration is free of cost but if you hired someone to do the job for you, then there may be service charges.


How to Registered e-PLKS ID

  1. Go to the ePLKS portal https://imigresen-online.imi.gov.my/plks/main;

  3. From the dropdown menu shown in the image above, choose the right category, if you going to renew the work permit of your construction, plantation, services, & agriculture Click "Permohonan Baru Pelabagai Sektor" and for maid "Permohonan Baru Pembantu Rumah", in our case it's Multiple Sectors (Pelabagai Sektor).
  4. Enter ROC, IC/Mykad of  Employer/Employer's Representative, and click Search (Cari);

  5. 1. If the employer is blacklisted by Immigration, the system will popup the following error at the top of the page.


    2. If the employer's address is incomplete, the employer's representative is not on the list of representatives or the employer email does not exist, the ePLKS ID application cannot be submitted, in that case, contact the OSC centre.


    3. If the application cannot be forwarded due to the employer's information being incomplete with OSC then click print slip (Cetak slip) to visit the OSC counter to update your record within the Immigration system.

  6. Otherwise, the system will fetch the list of Director/Representative of Employer registered with Immigration OSC centre;
  7. Here you can edit the email and phone number of listed directors/representatives by click on the name (as shown in the image above);
  8. Click the check box (under the "Philih" column) to Apply e-PLKS ID.
  9. Now click on continue ( Seturusnya) to upload the required documents;
  10. Select the document name one by one from the drop-down list> click choose file > select file from your pc/ device and click upload (muat naik). repeat the same steps for all files/documents;
  11. Download the Registration Letter's soft copy (Surat Kebenaran Pendaftaran ID ePLKS@JIM)

    To compress your documents to 250kb use photoshop, an online PDF compressor or share your files with us to help you compress, you can send us an email at support@spicyblogging.com.


    If you are appointing your representative then your director will sign the letter and EPF account statement of the last 3 months (BORANG ''A'' is not Acceptable for registration).


    If you have more than one representative don't forget to mention it in the letter and upload identity documents for all of them.

  12. In the case of Director will deal with Immigration then you have to upload the following documents (shown in the image below);
  13. In the case of a representative who is not listed in form 49/Section 58 then you must upload the KWSP (EPF) account statement of the last 3 months;
  14. If everything is fine then the "Submit" button (Hanter) will appear at the right corner of the window and you are good to submit the application, a pop-up window will appear on the popup screen to accept legal agreement (click the check box on the left side of the popup screen) and again click submit (Hanter).
You can track the status of the ID Registration Application.

Note: you will receive an acknowledgement email at the time of submission and after ID approval they username & password in two separate emails, if in case you have not received the response call them directly +603 8880 1452 (call centre Unit Lanjutan Bahagian Pekerja Asing) or chat with the support team by joining the Telegram Group.

Malaysia opened its Border for Vaccinated Travellers from Pakistan, India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Srilanka and Indonesia. but yet you have to spend 7 days in-home quarantine upon arrival and RT-PCR Test Covid-19 Negative Report is also required. Below we are going to take a look at the steps required before starting your journey.


The following categories are permitted entry into Malaysia without having approval from MyTravelPass Approval.


List of long-term Visit/Employment passes that have EXEMPTION from MTP approval: 

  1. Diplomat (Exemption Order)/Dependent/Foreign Maid.
  2. Expatriate Pass (Category I, II, III) / Dependent/Foreign Maid.
  3. Resident Pass-Talent (RP-T) /Dependent/Foreign Maid.
  4. Professional Visit Pass – Specialist.
  5. Professional Visit Pass.
  6. Permanent Resident (PR)/Spouse of PR/ Child of PR.
  7. Long Term Pass (Husband/Wife/Child) to Citizens.
  8. Senior Citizen Long Term Pass (Elderly)
  9. Widow/Divorcee Pass to Citizens

  11. Malaysia My Second Home Pass (MM2H)/Dependents/Foreign Maid.
  12. Resident Pass.
  13. Temporary Working Visit Pass (PLKS)
  14. Foreign Maid (PRA)

The holder of long term passes (PLKS, Spouse, Students Pass and MM2H Pass Holders) whose passes are expired or who do not fall under above mention categories are required to apply for entry application via the appropriate channel i.e MTP/Myentry or Travel Authorization. Pre-entry approval is also required for newly approved employment, professional resident and short term business passes. To apply for entry approval check out our Re-entry PLKS guide


We also recommend checking Embassy/ High Commission website for the latest update.



Got MyTravelPass Approval? if yes please proceed to the next step.


Apply For Social Visit Pass at the Nearest Malaysian High Commission or Embassy

If your Visit/Spouse/Employment Pass expired you have to submit your passport along with the MyTravelPass approval letter, required document and visa fee (In my case it's a 12,500 /PKR service fee of 2000 charged by the authorised agent). The High Commission/Embassy will stamp temporary 30 days social visit pass on your passport and you're good to go to plan your Journey.


In our case here is Social Pass (VDR) issued based on MyTravelPass.
