Dear Valued Clients,

Greetings from Expats Service Centre!

We refer to our announcement dated 6th January 2023 (BSD–EXPATS–ANNC–MDEC–190 D20230106) on the above matter. We would like to highlight that companies are required to obtain prior approval from Director General, Department of Labour Peninsular Malaysia (JTKSM) before employing Expatriate/Foreign Knowledge Worker (FKW) based on the provisions of Section 60K, Employment Act 1955.

As such, effective from 15th March 2023, submission of FKW projection without the approval letter from JTKMS will be put on hold since the letter is a MANDATORY document. We hereby seek your cooperation to adhere to the requirements made by the Government of Malaysia.

For further assistance and detailed information, you may email JTKSM directly at [email protected] or contact their office at 03-8886 2498/5192/2361.
