Malaysia : International Passport — Model G : Version III (2009 — 2014) Proprietary Biometric

Malaysia was the first country in the world to issue biometric passports in March 1998, after a local company, IRIS Corporation, developed the technology. In December 2002, thumbprint data was added to the biometric data on the passport chip (second chip variety).

Malaysian immigration checkpoints were the only ones with the technology to read and authenticate the data from the proprietary RFID chip.

From 2006, a new lamination technology from Toppan Cosmo Europe GmbH was used with high-security holographic laminates.

Issued to a Malay male with entries to United Kingdom, Japan, Myanmar, Thailand, Singapore, the Philippines, Vietnam, Loas and Sri Lanka.

It has two visas, a sticker-visa from Japan and a rubber-stamped visa from Myanmar.

VISA FOR MYANMAR

Interestingly, visa for Myanmar was issued in the form of rubber-stamping not in the form of a proper sticker.

Application in 2012 at the Embassy of Myanmar in Kuala Lumpur costs RM110.

VISA FOR JAPAN

From 1st July 2013, the Government of Japan has decided to abolish the requirement of short-term visa for Malaysian Nationals who hold ordinary biometric passports with embedded microchip that is compliant with ICAO standards(issued since February 2010) who wish to enter Japan for short-term stay.

However, this visa exemption only apply to Malaysian Nationals holding ordinary biometric passport with embedded microchip that is compliant with ICAO standards. Malaysian Nationals who do not hold ordinary biometric passport with embedded microchip that is compliant with ICAO standards remain advised to obtain a visa to enter into Japan.

The visa exemption arrangement between Japan and Malaysia, which had been existed since before 1993, provides that Malaysian nationals who meet the relevant conditions could enter Japan without obtaining a visa for a period of not exceeding three consecutive months (short-term stay). However, in 1993, the Government of Japan after taking into consideration the situation at the time and in consultation with the Government of Malaysia, began to advise Malaysian nationals to obtain a visa in advance to enter Japan.

In accordance with the visa exemption, the duration of stay in Japan to be given to Malaysian Nationals at that time of entry inspection will be for maximum 90 days. Those who plan to stay for more than 90 days or work in Japan, remain required to obtain a visa as before.

When a person arrived into Japan, an entry permit will be issued at the entry point by the Japanese immigration control in the form of a sticker. This is the similar for those who enter into Japan with a valid travel visa.
