    Hi I’m Jun. Can I ask the situation in Jakarta Indonesia? Can I ask how long does it take to get an appointment to stick the single entry visa after application? And how is the SOP to walk in the Malaysian embassy in Jakarta? Such as to get a certificate of antigen test.

    Salam Sejahtera,

    Kami ad membuat permohonan untuk membawa masuk pekerja asing sebanyak 139 pax quota. Namun, 7 pekerja asing tidak layak untuk calling visa. Oleh itu, kami mahu membuat replacement bagi 7 orang tersebut. Berdasarkan tempoh lanjutan yang dikeluarkan oleh kerajaan, hanya layak untuk resit bagi tempoh November 19 sehingga Disember 20, resit VDR kami adalah pada oktober.

    Persoalan saya, boleh ke kami cancel visa yang lama dan membuat calling visa yang baharu atau kami kena request refund levy?

    Boleh saya tahu procedure yang ditetapkan untuk kes ni?
