PUTRAJAYA, July 8 (Bernama) -- The government has fixed the maximum rate of

RM35 for registration under the 6P amnesty and legalisation programme for

illegal immigrants through 348 appointed managing companies, while the maximum

service charge for legalisation is RM300.

Deputy Home Minister Datuk Lee Chee Leong said employers or individuals

needed not pay these charges if they dealt directly with the Immigration

Department.

"However, for legalisation of the illegals, the employers are required to

make several payments for each worker given a valid work permit including the

levy and guarantee bond, temporary working pass and insurance," he told

reporters after presenting accreditation certificates to the 348 managing

companies, here, today.

Lee said employers were advised not to make payment to any party until the

official date for the process is announced.

He said the government was also devising a mechanism to tackle the issue of

legal foreign workers who fled from their original employers in order to

register under the 6P programme and find new employers offering better pay.

"The Immigration Department will look through their records before the

legalisation process begins because this initiative is only for illegal

immigrant workers," he said.

On the 348 managing companies appointed, Lee said they were selected from

1,390 applications by a special committee which held meetings on June 13 and

July 6.

He said the committee comprised 17 representatives from various divisions

and ministries including the Home Ministry, Immigration Department, Human

Resource Ministry, Peninsular Malaysia Manpower Department, Royal Malaysian

Police and the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.

Lee said the government would provide complete information on each process

including the list of appointed managing companies, registration counter

locations, registration method and other information through the mass media and

ministry''s website.

Enquiries could be made to the 6P programme''s secretariat at the ministry''s

Home Affairs Division, he added.
