Aspirant migrant workers intending to go to Malaysia within this time frame are requested to prepare themselves by verifying the correctness of all documents, including e-visas issued by Kuala Lumpur, exit clearance from the Bureau of Manpower, Employment, and Training (BMET), and airline travel tickets, the release added.


The maximum immigration fee set by the government for Malaysians is Taka 78,990. It is requested not to transact money in excess of this amount and not to transact the aforesaid transaction in any way other than a proper document, receipt, or bank account.
