immigration experience

after everything was done today, i decided to blog this, for the benefit of others who wishes to do the same. marrying a foreigner give me and my partner extra work on documentations. and this does not include the sivil certificate or whatever on the marriage. hmmmm... anyway... here goes.

To Apply For Spouse Visa (Foreigner marrying a Malaysian)
documents needed:
  • form 12
  • form 38
  • a copy of marriage certificate
  • a copy of divorce certificate (if you were a divorcee before)
  • a copy of permission to get married out of country (if you got married out of malaysia)
  • a copy of passport for applicant (all stamped pages)
  • a copy of spouse's IC (being the sponsor)
  • passport photograph 2 pieces each, husband and wife
  • security bond stamp RM10
  • letter of oath - get it at the oath office near the immigration ofc.
  • 1 piece wedding photo
steps:
  1. fill up all the forms
  2. attach the pics wherever relevant
  3. go and get the security bond stamp at lvl 20, wisma kswg, jalan kg attap, kl. pay RM10
  4. go to oath office at the immigration. do it yourself, or someone will charge you rm8 for doing a simple job i.e. get it stamped :P
  5. proceed to level 4, get a number at counter 1, open file.
  6. the officer will attend to you and let you know how much you need to pay for security bond depending on your spouse's origin country. in my case, germany = RM1500/-
  7. the social visit pass will cost RM90 for 6 months for 1st year. after that your spouse will get yearly pass. after 5 years, he/she can request to be permanent resident.
  8. for renewal of pass, RM90 each time. 
benefits:
  • social visit pass for 6 months instead of 3 months.
  • extended to 1 year for the following year.
  • after 5 years can request for PR status.
  • possibility to work.
time spent:
for all the above process, going to jln kampung attap and immigration office at pusat bandar damansara, it was from 9.30am and ended at 11.45am.

important notes:
  • bring all the original documents
  • both spouse and sponsor must come
      try and calculate if it is worth it... compared to coming in and out of malaysia every 3 months. bus fare, meals etc... ;)

      Pops Eatery Wangsa Maju - my personal review

      today was the first time that i did my groceries shopping online. i am a happy mom, wife.. etc.. hahaha :D then lisa said she was hungry and she feels like eating at Pops. we asked joey if he wants to come along.. and as usual, his first choice would be his anime. :p anyway, it was supposed to be my early dinner but i failed miserably... i had half portion of chinese fried rice. okay, here's my review about the restaurant. lisa has been promoting this place to me for a long time. date of visit: 24 Jan 2015location: PoP's Eatery, Lot 28055, Jalan Wangsa Delima, Pusat Bandar Wangsa Maju, Seksyen 5, Wangsa Maju. Tel: 03-4144 3162place & decor: simple and nice looks cosy for lepakking. cleanliness: 9 out of 10. restaurant service: efficient, quite fast. maybe because we were the only customer at that time. we noticed that they have too many workers. they could cut down into half to cut cost :p #justsayingfood: food was yummy... it exceeds my expectation... price: we are okay w…

" which is much easier to swallow :) well anyway... today, i became the iron lady!! hahaha :D LOL... errmm i am also know as 'rimau' in the office so.. what the heck lah.. :P
      after talking to lisa... her opinion was i better have it on when she still has hers on... she has 1 more year to go.. :) so somehow last week, i was at the dentist to send joey. to pull out his tooth.. and when we reached there, lisa was supposed to have her appointment.. i took the opportunity to ask more about having braces :) and that saturday, the doct made a .. what was that called aaa... mold of my teeth pattern.. and so, from there, i decided that i am gonna do i…
