Immigration Law Questions? Ask an Immigration Lawyer.
Immigration agents on exit have discretion; however the law allows and the discretion used is to detain you for several weeks to several months, until you have had a formal hearing.
However for a short overstay, if you do to the immigration before they discover you, you can pay a fine, normally in the range of RM30 per day of overstay, and then depart. YOu are barred from re-entering two days for every day of overstay.
If they discover you, you are detained, get a hearing and are deported.
do you know how is the fine if the overstay is 2 months 5 days.
Since the court and the immigration have some discretion in this regard, I can only tell you that generally, the fines are 30RM per day of overstay. This means your fine could be about 2,000RM.
