It was reported by FMT that the syndicate catered to employers of foreign workers who wanted them to remain here or return to their home country.
The syndicate had two modus operandi, the first being a “flying passport” for those who came to Malaysia using social visas but were working here illegally.
The agents of the workers would collect their passports and pay the immigration officers to stamp their passports to indicate that they had left the country after three months and re-entered legally.
