Lost of Travel
Documents / Passport Abroad
All lost passport applications will be
thoroughly investigated by the Immigration Department in Malaysia before
any consideration can be made for its replacement. Passport is an

For the record, the production of a new passport due to loss usually takes
a longer time as it is in the Immigration Department of Malaysia’s
discretion when it will finish investigating the loss.

station. Some police stations do have a standard document property lost

Notice to Malaysian
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs Malaysia encourages all Malaysian
travelers to register with their local Embassy or Consulate when arriving
in a foreign country. Registration helps the Embassy to provide important
services for Malaysian residing or traveling abroad.
Some of these services include:
* Locating individuals in cases of family or personal emergencies,
* Relaying important travel and safety information about the region,
* Arranging evacuation transportation in cases of natural disaster or
* Issuing replacement passports when originals are lost, and
* A number of other administrative services relating to personal
Without the information provided through registration, the Embassy is
severely hindered in its ability to provide these services. Many of these
services involve emergency situations and time constraints, therefore
failure to register will almost certainly lead to delays at moments when
you can least afford them.
