Malaysian Passport
Should I go back

New MessageMalaysian Passport (modified 0 times) Average Joe
Dear who ever,
I had been staying in NYC since I graduate 25 yrs ago. I have my own interior design firm here in NYC. Now to make story short, some where along my college times my apartment was broke in by theft. I though they took my passport besides my valuable belonging. Shame on me for not doing anything or refer to anybody about it. Last three year I found my so called missing passport in my old luggage.
I tried to renew my way long expired passport at Malaysia Consulate in NYC but was ask by Malaysian Immigration to obtain "surat Pengakuan Taraf" for me to return to Malaysia. I was ask to apply my passport in Malaysia.
> Is the "surat Pengakuan taraf" valid or serve any other purpose?
> Will Malaysia Immigration reject my application for new passport once I return?(due to not returning to homeland for such a long period)
> Is there anything wrong or against or offence the Malaysian's law for not renewing my passport for so long.
> What is my right?
> Do I need an attorney?

I am looking forward for a concrete answer because this is not a laughinh matter. I will lose everthing that i have here if I got stuck in Malaysia.
Thank you and any kind of inputs are appreciated. Good luck to me!!

Why make things difficult for yourself? Aren't you a NYC citizen now?

Why do you need Malaysian Passport and citizenship anymore to travel?

Why don't you simply travel to Malaysia as a tourist from NYC and forget about your Malaysian Citizenship, so that you retain whatever you have in NYC?

To answer your questions:

1. SPT don't serve any purpose if you are now already a NYC citizen.

2. You don't need Malaysian Passport and citizenship, if you have nothing worth left in Malaysia. Simply travel and visit Malaysia using NYC passport and as NYC citizen.

3. As mentioned above, then you are NYC citizen and tourist. You are NOT a Malaysian anymore. Malaysian Immigration DON'T bother you and no offence.

4. You right ss a NYC citizen and tourist.

5. You don't need to worry about anything.

6. You will not be stuck in Malaysia as a NYC citizen and tourist.

You don't need an Engineer to change your car's punctured tires. All you need is an Mechanical Apprentice.

Any document not validated for so long is bound to be stale. For the sake of abating the ignorance you see here, you cannot be a citizen of New York City. You may be a citizn of the USA. However Batman's logic still prevails in some quarters.

Having said all of that I arrive at the point of your current status. Are you legally in te US or are you one of the convenient illegal who the city and the state have choen to ignore becaue you do not fit their profiles like the Mexicans and Africans?

If you have been illegal for so long you in in sh*t street because the amnsties proposed by Bush do not apply to you and post September 11 2002 you are one of the "Usual Suspects" I suggest you marry the enxt ##### you put it into and make sure she is American.

America doe snot need you and neither does Malaysia. My conclusions are that you have not done famously well there and the dream is over. So back to the old 'wife' you deserted years ago to claim some comfort.

Dirty deeds done dirt cheap. Not in Malaysia. Try China.

What's all the Hullabaloo about? What a hive of industry? The argument doesn't hold water.

He held to his choice, to stick to the topic of how to avoid getting
