Questions Time: 17-03-2011 Abused of Social Pass by Singaporeans

PERTANYAAN : LISAN

DARIPADA :  TUAN WEE CHOO KEONG [ WANGSA MAJU ]

TARIKH :      17 MAC 2011

Rujukan: 384

SOALAN :

Tuan Wee Choo Keong [ Wangsa Maju ] minta MENTERI DALAM NEGERI menyatakan bahawa memandangkan ramai rakyat Singapura yang memasuki Malaysia menggunakan Pas Sosial dan menetap atau bekerja bertahun-tahun lamanya (permanently), sama ada Kementerian bercadang mengeluarkan peraturan baru seperti undang-undang imigrasi Singapura dimana pelawat-pelawat atas Pas Sosial hanya dibenarkan tinggal di Singapura tidak melebihi 90 hari dalam setahun, supaya tidak ada penyalahgunaan Pas Sosial tersebut.

JAWAPAN :

Tuan Yang di-Pertua,

Terima kasih diucapkan kepada Yang Berhormat yang mengemukakan pertanyaan.

Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat, bilangan warganegara Singapura yang masuk ke Malaysia pada tahun 2010 adalah seramai 13,042,004 dan ini adalah bilangan tertinggi untuk tahun berkenaan. Pada masa ini tiada had bilangan kemasukan yang dikenakan terhadap pelawat asing dari Singapura. Mereka boleh masuk ke Malaysia menggunakan Pas Lawatan Sosial untuk tempoh 30 hari, dan tempoh ini juga boleh disambung sehingga tempoh 90 hari, bergantung kepada keadaan. Walau bagaimanapun, Pas ini hanya membenarkan mereka masuk untuk tujuan sosial dan bukannya untuk tujuan bekerja. Lazimnya warganegara Singapura yang kerap berulang-alik masuk ke Malaysia merupakan pelabur dan ahli perniagaan yang ingin menjalankan dan menjaga kepentingan pelaburan dan perniagaan mereka di sini. Dalam hal ini, peraturan Imigresen adalah jelas di mana jika seseorang warganegara asing masuk ke Malaysia dengan tujuan tertentu seperti untuk bekerja ataupun belajar, mereka hendaklah memohon kemudahan Imigresen yang berkaitan dan Jabatan Imigresen Malaysia boleh mengeluarkan Pas berkenaan jika syarat-syaratnya dipenuhi.

Note:

I am questioning about the Singaporeans coming to Malaysia for legitimate business and visit. I am asking questions about those SIngaporeans have been staying years for years under Social Pass. Some entered Malaysia under Social Pass and do business here for years and they left Malaysia every 3 months for a day or two to validate their visits. The Immigration Department must take action to stop such abused. How can a person be entering Malaysia under social pass for years on end and only to leave Malaysia before the 3 months period is up and to enter again within a few days later.

Commons sense tells us that when there is such a pattern of their visit, actions must be taken to stop the abused. Like in SIngapore Malaysians cannot stay there for more than 90 days a year under Social Pass.  I hope that the Immigration Department will take the necessary action to stop such abuse. Please don’t let the Singaporeans to laugh at us.

    Singapore government treats Malaysians like shit but we are very lenience to them. I know that they are many Singaporeans live and work here as though they have Work Permit or Permanent Resident. They leave Malaysia every 3 months just to get their immigration chop on the their passports.

    Some of them have lived here in this way for more than 10 years. How could our immigration Officers do not detect the abuse of their Social Pass. The Immigration Department please wake up and check these Singaporeans using Malaysia as their playing ground.

    Hope that you can help draft a new bill to control and limit this misuse of loopholes and regulations.
    Similar situation committed by Thai visitors working in Tom Yam and food stalls throughout Malaysia too.

    There are too many Singaporeans abusing their social passes. They are working and living in Malaysia permanently. Actions should be aken against hem like what the Singapore government did to Malaysians i Singapore.

    I hope that Malaysian Immigration Departmnt will take serious actions against those Singaporeans leaving Malaysia every 3 months are up and to return in a few days later. The Immigration officer could see the patern pf their visist from their passport.

      Kalau saya tak salah boleh bawa wang keluar tidak boleh melibihi US$10,000 (value). Kena check dengan Jabatan Kastam dan/atua Bank Negara. Jika melebihi jumlah tersebut akan ditahan dan perlu kebenaran dari Bank Negara dan akan juga didenda.

      Sekian, terima kasih.
