British Passport : United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland (1967 — 1972 — 1977) with Residence in Malaysia

British Passport was issued for a 35-year-old Mr. Mr. S.M. Segu Ibrahim S/O Mohamad Ibrahim in 1967 by the British High Commissioner, Kuala Lumpur.

The passport was renewed on 23 November 1972 and valid until 2 May 1977 at the same office.

There was multiple immigrations stampings by the Malaysian, Singaporean and Indian frontiers. He had a residence rights in Malaysia and had been granted re-entry permits by the Malaysian Immigration.

Being a residence of Malaysia, he was subject to control under the Commonwealth Immigrants Acts first being introduced in 1962 and amended in 1968 and further in 1971.

Before the Act was passed, citizens of British Commonwealth countries had extensive rights to migrate to the UK. In response to a perceived heavy influx of immigrants, the Conservative Party government tightened the regulations, permitting only those with government-issued employment vouchers, limited in number, to settle. The 1968 Act barred the future right of entry previously enjoyed by Citizens of the United Kingdom and Colonies, to those born there or who had a least one parent or grandparent born there. It was introduced amid concerns that up to 200,000 Kenyan Asians fleeing that country's "Africanization" policy, would take up their right to reside in the UK. Immigration Act 1971 further elaborated the definition of ‘patrial’ migrants, first introduced in the Commonwealth Immigrants Act 1968, as persons born in the United Kingdom, and persons who had resided there for the previous five years or longer.
