Step-By-Step Guide: How To Renew Your Passport Online

19-May-2022
By MJC97

As of the 11th of May 2022, the Malaysian government announced that walk-in passport renewal services at the offices will no longer be conducted. All passport renewal activities are to be done completely online. 



This means no more waiting in the cold offices that are ham packed with people. YAY! But, this brings a whole new complication... How do I renew my passport online? 


Well, thank God for this Twitter user, @anisssurayaaa because she just shared a whole guide on how to do it online. Here's the step-by-step guide:


#1 Go to the Jabatan Immigresen Malaysia's e-Services platform

After reading the terms and conditions click on "Setuju" or Agree.

#2 Fill in the information required

To make things easier, have your old passport ready next to you so that you can refer to it for the details needed.

#3 Choose where you'd like to pick up your passport

Next, a list of locations where you can pick up your passport will be displayed. Pick whichever location is nearest to you and the system will determine a time and date for you to pick it up based on the time and date you renewed your passport. 

*Tips: Try renewing before 3pm on weekdays, your new passport could be ready the very same day! 


#4 Upload your passport photo

The next step is to upload your passport photo. Please make sure that your photo matches the specifications provided: 

- white background

- dark coloured clothing

- dark coloured headcovers that don't cover your face for those wearing hijabs

- no glasses or contact lenses 

- must be a soft copy taken at a professional photo shop, no polaroids allowed

#5 Make the payment

You can make your payment using a credit card or through direct debit (FPX). Here's how much it would cost:

- Normal Passport (13 - 59 years of age): RM200

- Senior Citizens (60 years and above): RM100

*Tips: Keep your receipt!


6. Collect your passport

Bear in mind that no representative is allowed to collect your passport for you. You will have to bring:

- your identity card

- old passport 

- receipt

For those below 18 years of age, please bring your guardian and birth certificate along.
