Residence Pass Update

Today I completed all my documents which i submitted online through the TalentCorp Malaysia website. One needs to prepare and scan all the needed documents to complete the online submission... luckily the website is pretty sophisticated and you can in fact partially finish the application and SAVE your work. That means you can log in anytime to fill up your forms and attach needed documents. It took me around a week to complete all the needed paperwork. Today I finally clicked "SUBMIT". After you do that, there will be an auto reply to your email which includes a PDF attachement with a summary of the submitted applications (in my case it included my name, my husband  and my daughter).

The next step after that is to go get a bank draft which should be issued to Talent Corporation Malaysia Berhad. I thought it would take time, but i was pleasantly surprised by the good service of HSBC and within 10 minutes I got the bank draft that I needed.

I also had to call Talent Corp hotline Telephone +603-83153195 to ask if the amount I need to pay immediately should cover for all 3 applications or just for myself. Thankfully there was a prompt answer on the phone and the lady who answered was helpful.

The answer to my question: If you will apply for 3 people, that means you need to pay an initial fee of RM200 per person. So to apply the RP (Residence Pass) for myself, hubby and baby I needed to make a bank draft of RM600 in total.

I still need to get that bank draft sent to the TalentCorp office ... then they will start processing it. Let us keep our fingers crossed and see how this goes.

  1. thanks for this info! do you know how much they charge for applying? I couldnt find this info in their FAQ webiste.

  2. Hi there! We are a Filipino family who have lived in Singapore and now Hong Kong, and will be moving to Kuala Lumpur. We absolutely love HK so your blog is encouraging in helping me realize that KL will be great as well. I want to ask about household help. Our yaya has followed us everywhere and she is now 44 years old. Is there an age limit? Can you recommend an agency to help bring her to KL to continue working for us? Many thanks in advance!

  3. Hi.. ur blog is v useful.. so is there any result of ur application? have u received ur pass?... how is the process going so far.. kindly do update on this.. thank you.. misha

  4. Hi retsa, anonymous and misha... sorry late reply as I was out on 2-weeks vacation.

    Retsa: They charge RM200 per applicant. So that means for my application, we had to pay RM600 (myself, hubby and daughter). You need to get a bank draft for that and send payment to their office after you have uploaded all your documents. They will send email confirmation aftert you click submit.... print a copy of that email and send along with payment.

    Anonymous: For the maid agency, you can call the agent I use he is very trustworthy and he can process work permit for your maid. For sure she can continue working for you and in fact that is a good strategy else you might suffer undending maid problems here... totally different from manila and singapore.

    Misha: my application is being processed now. I submitted the documents before my vacation. Then I dropped them an email a week ago... they promptly replied that they will be reviewing my case and that I will get a response by July 1. I will update my blog afterwards. Im hoping for the best. So far the process has been straightforward.

  5. Hi Pink Addict,

    I was thinking of applying for the RP. Are they strict on the salary requirement?

  6. hard for me to judge if they are strict or not. Suggest u drop them email and state your situation so that you get clarity. Good luck.
