The Malaysian Immigration Department (MID) headquarters in Putrajaya will be evaluating Professional Visit Pass (PVP) applications with greater scrutiny to eradicate fraudulent applications. As a result, the MID has mandated that all PVP applications must be filed in-person by a corporate representative of the sponsoring employer. During the submission, the corporate representative is to provide verification of their identity via a recent Employee Provident Fund statement, which should show contributions within the three months prior to the date of the PVP application. It should be noted that this is the only form of identification that the MID will accept.  This change will go into effect on June 15th.
