    Default Malaysian PRs: need info

    Guys I'm a Malaysian PR here, just had a baby. Born in KK hospital here. I need information on procedure for taking M'sian passport for her. As I'm taking leave and also bringing my baby to the M'sian Highcom I do not make any mistake.

    I'm bringing
    - My baby's birth cert & picture.
    - My wife's and my passport, ic, marriage cert.

    Appreciate some info from those who've had this experience.

    Which counter I should go ?
    Do I need to follow the normal queue or can request for fast processing ?
    Any other documents needed ?
    Is it a must to bring the baby along ?

    thanks

    Not sure, but perhaps you could give them a call then there will be no guessing or doubts. Congratulations!

    You will need the Singapore IC (bring Malaysian IC also just in case) for both parents, your passport (not quite sure this is needed, but bring lah just in case they ask), baby birth cert, marriage cert and both mother and baby must be present.

    You have a choice of queueing or try to jumo queue cos of baby :-
    Choice 1: You go queue early early (recommend to reach there before 6:30am) to get early queue number, Mum and Baby can join you at 8:00am.
    Choice 2: Try luck and turn up at 8:00am with baby and mum and ask Guard to help u (likely to work but don't quote me).

    Photos and photostating can be done at the "studios" nearby, recommend the Project Studio Nova studio for the pics.

    I was at the High Comm just two weeks ago to renew wife and daughter's passport and saw someone with a baby come quite late, but managed to jump queue and finish before us (yeahhh ... i was there queueing at 6:30am ... bummer)

    Congratulations on your baby!! Post pic here if you have.

    No need to queue, I think ... go to one of the counters on the leftmost side as you enter the building, and ask (the counters to the left of the visa counters).

    To be safe, bring all documentation, and if you want, prepare 2 copies of everything.

    Congratz!!

    Been a couple of years back, so I don't remember details, or rules may have changed. But here goes:
    - Mother's prescence was not required, but birth cert of child required
    - So long as they see infants, you are given priority to skip ahead of all queues
    - Bring all your docs just in case
    - Photocopy all your documents (heck!! make 5 copies!! you can keep those extra ones) before hand. Any shops nearby that do it for you will mark up their services significantly.

    Good luck!

    Oh.. and do update the rest of here on your actual experience -- could benefit others too.

    For those who need this info.

    I'm a Malaysian, Wife's foreigner (both are PRs here), Baby born in Sg.
    Now... how to register your new-born in M'sian highcom and apply a passport.

    1. Collect your baby's birth cert from hospital.
    you have 42 days to apply PR for your baby.

    2. Go to Malaysian highcom, can go around 9am.
    No need to queue. There is a separate couter
    to register new born.You must bring your baby ,
    also your wife (not very sure if wife should go or not).

    Bring 2 copies of :
    1. You and your wife's birth CERT.
    (If no birth for your wife, bring her passport)
    2. Malaysian and Singapore ICs.
    3. Baby's birth cert.
    4. Baby passport photo : 5x3.5cm, blue background x4 pcs.

    5. Completed passport application form.

    Get a form from counter, fill-up, submit and collect queue number.
    They will take the baby's thumb print and Issue you a receipt. Original birth certs and ICs will be retained untill the collection date - 10 working days.

    Bring the receipt, 2x baby's photo and baby to counter "B" in passport section so that they can see your baby's face and endorse the picture.
    They'll paste the picture on the passport app form and sign on it.
    This is important as you don't have bring your baby again for passport application.

    3. Come back on collection day. Go early - 6.30am and take a queue ticket to apply passport for your baby - don't forget to bring the receipt, and application form. You must collect the baby's registration cert first and must wait until 9am, same counter. Incase your queue number called in the passport counter, inform them you need to collect your reg cert. This to avoid taking another queue number.

    After collecting the cert, make copies of necessary documents and proceed to the same passport counter. Submit everything and pay S$65.
    Wait for collection date - 7 working days.
