Template Letter to MP & Ministries

  • Email template for Malaysians with foreign spouses
  • Please edit the square brackets [xxx] where necessary
  • Proposed subject: Seeking a Meeting with MP [MP Name]

Dear [MP Title and Name]

I hope you are well and I am [name], a constituent of [your area]. I am writing to you in hope you could assist my situation which has unfortunately caused me great difficulty and stress having to deal with the Immigration Department.

[Summarize your issue in this paragraph. Leave out emotional complaints as you want your MP to help and not be a sounding board. Sample as follows: I married a foreigner in [year] and to get his spouse visa, we had to visit the Immigration Dept [x] number of times. However, each time we were told of new documents/ requirements that we were not made aware before. And because my spouse is unable to work until obtaining this visa, this has caused us massive hardship to make ends meet.]

I wish to express my disappointment with the Immigration department and their inconsistent rules, which sometimes are not published or mentioned in the checklists, making us undergo huge difficulty and expenses as well for repeated trips.

I understand I am not alone as I have also met other Malaysians with foreign spouses and it seems we have the key common issues as such:

1)         Inconsistent rules and differing requirements by Immigration officials

2)         Difficulty in getting employment and supporting the household

3)         Expenses you may have incurred to leave the country and return to start the spouse visa and shorter term duration of the spouse visa.

I sincerely seek your intervention and call for an urgent review of the policy for Foreign Spouses, to uphold their right to be employed by the removal of the statement of Prohibition from employment from their visas.  This will encourage young Malaysians couples to be employed, reduce the brain drain of Professionals to other countries and allow us to contribute towards the growth of this nation.

We also urge the Government to review the salaries and staffing of the Immigration Department and JPN, as in the last 25 years the population and workload has increased, however these departments staffing and salaries have not correspondingly increased, please do consider this in the review.

Thank you very much in advance.

Yours sincerely,
