Following the new requirement to use the Malaysian E-Filing system, any employers who have not completed the registration in 2014 and requested a new projection for 2015 will face delays in the processing of new and renewal Employment Passes. Requesting a new projection for 2015 is expected to take approximately two to three weeks and thus, delays in processing of Employment Passes will most likely be at least a month long. Employers should ensure that they submit a projection request as soon as possible, if they have not already.
