Endorsement of Exemption Section 66

Background of Granting Exemption Endosment

Section 66 of the Immigration Act 1959/63 (Act 155) is a restriction on the right of entry of citizens into the State of East Malaysia. A citizen is subject to having a Pass or Permit to enter and be in the State of East Malaysia (Sabah / Sarawak).

This exemption endorsement is a form of stamp affixed to the applicant’s travel document, either a Restricted Travel Document (DPT) or an International Malaysian Passport (PMA), which exempts the holder from obtaining a pass or permit to live or work in the State of Sabah.

This exemption endorsement is only issued by the Sabah State Immigration Department.

Failure to obtain an endorsement of this exemption will result in the following problems;

  1. Not allowed to leave if the Social Visit Pass (IMM.114) has expired.
  2. Need to obtain an Exit Check Memo at the Visa, Pass & Permit Division before leaving the State of Sabah (if the Social Visit Pass (IMM.114) has expired).
  3. Affect the application for a Permanent Residence Permit in the State of Sabah because the main condition is to have a Long Term Residence Pass in the State of Sabah as proof.
