YOU CAN CHECK YOUR STATUS AT THE IMMIGRATION website
YOU COULD ALSO USE ONE OF THE KIOSKS AT KLIA…
The Immigration Department of Malaysia recently has installed a set of blacklist status kiosks in Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) that allow you to check your travel status as a Malaysian citizen.
KLIA is the first airport to have three new pre-read kiosks to quickly check your status before you go through the trouble of checking into your flight only to get to the immigration counter and be asked to turned back.
Although Malaysians planning to go abroad can already check their travel status via the Immigration Department website, many travellers still end up getting stopped at the airport.
Currently the three kiosks are located at Level 5 of KLIA next to the Gate 1 and Gate 2.
Upon checking, a traveller can quickly find out if they are ineligible to travel and the kiosk will also provide the reason behind the restriction so that the individual can contact the relevant agencies.
Furthermore, travelers holding cancelled or expired passports will be alerted, likewise for those using passports that expire in less than 6 months or has been reported stolen.
The department is planning to rollout more kiosks for airports around the country including at KLIA2 in the near future.

Loan defaulters among 1.14 million on dept’s travel blacklist
PUTRAJAYA: A wide net has been cast on those barred from leaving the country by the Immigration Department.
And it is not just tax offenders and those with criminal records who face a rude shock at border checkpoints or at the airport.
The latest figures show some 85,000 National Higher Education Fund (PTPTN) beneficiaries who did not repay their loans on the department’s travel blacklist.
They are among 1.14 million people on the list which includes 701,266 Malaysians.
The department has advised Malaysians to check their Immigration status prior to making holiday plans overseas to avoid problems.
“It is the responsibility of the traveller to first check if they are cleared to leave the country.
“It doesn’t matter if you are planning to leave by flight, road, rail or sea.
“As long as you are on the blacklist, you will not be allowed to pass the Immigration checkpoint, even if you have a valid flight ticket,” Immigration security and passport division director Ibrahim Abdullah told The Star.
As of Sept 3, the department’s overseas travel restriction orders included those who have been declared with outstanding debt issues. There were 277,693 such Malaysians named by the Insolvency Department.

PTPTN defaulters to be blacklisted under CCRIS
National Higher Education Fund (PTPTN) loan defaulters will soon be blacklisted under the Central Credit Reference Information System (CCRIS).
The move will be implemented from next year, Berita Harian reported today.
The system, which was established by Bank Negara, will block loan defaulters from applying for loans from other financial agencies.
This includes applications for personal loans, credit cards, houses and cars.
The move will kick-start with efforts to recover funds worth RM1.2 billion from 170,000 loan defaulters who have never made any payment from 1998 to 2010.
…the 170,000 loan defaulters would be given a chance to discuss ways for them to pay their loans before their names are blacklisted under the CCRIS.
‘When we announce the move soon, we will give them three months to discuss and make payment before their names are listed under CCRIS,” Idris was quoted as saying by Bernama.
