Guide To Terminate Labuan Work Permit

All Labuan companies can apply to Labuan FSA for a two(2) years renewable, multiple-entry, work permit. This permit is applicable to their Directors or expatriates of managerial positions to work under their Labuan company. Furthermore, their dependents can also be included in their work permit application with the Labuan Immigration Department.

With the work permit, business operators are not confined to staying in Labuan. They can stay elsewhere in west Malaysian cities like Kuala Lumpur, Penang and so on.

Termination of Work Permit – An Overview

There are three (3) categories of Labuan expatriates wanting to terminate their Labuan work permit as follows:

Category A

Expatriates resigned from the company and leave Malaysia for good and would like to terminate their Labuan work permit and clearance of immigration data records. Under this category, the Labuan Immigration Department will issue an Exit Clearance Memo to the expatriates to exit Malaysia

Category B

Expatriates wish to change from their current Labuan work permit to different categories of visa such as Malaysia My Second Home visa, Talent Pass, etc. Under this category, the Labuan Immigration Department will clear data in their system to enable the expatriates to apply for a new category of visas.

Category C

Expatriates with expired Labuan work permit while waiting for approval by Labuan FSA for another 2 years’ work permit. Under this category, the Labuan Immigration Department will clear data in their system to enable the expatriates to apply for a new category of visas.

Documents to submit to Labuan Immigration Department for the processing are as follows:

  1. Original Passport
  2. Inland Revenue Board (IRB) personal tax clearance letter
  3. Copy of air ticket for Category 1 expatriates
  4. Copy of visa approval document for the Category B’s expatriates

 

It advisable to apply for IRB personal tax clearance letter earlier as the processing timeline may be longer than the time taken to terminate your work permit. Labuan immigration has stressed that they will only accept the processing of termination or data system clearance for the expatriates only after the submission of the personal tax clearance of the expatriates is received.
