UK and Malaysia in mutual agreement on BOC passport issue

At an early morning meeting today with Mr Zahirul Fahmi Zaini (the Immigration Attache at the Malaysian High Commission, London),  Mr Edmond Yeo, the Chair at the Chinese Information and Advice Centre (CIAC) was being briefed on the outcome of the recent mutual agreement made between the United Kingdom and Malaysia over the long standing British Overseas Citizen (BOC) issue.

The Home Office has now advised all former Malaysians who hold the BOC passport to contact their UKBA Immigration Case Officer respectively to apply for a new 5 years BOC passport immediately.

This would enable them to apply for an initial 5 years Resident’s leave to remain in Malaysia, and subsequently, they may be eligible to apply for settlement and naturalisation within the normal process in Malaysia.

It is believed that BOC passport holders who are not involved in any contentious issues outstanding with the UKBA may be allowed to enter and visit the United Kingdom at any time, subject to normal UK entry requirements.

(However, this could not be confirmed with the UKBA in time for this news release)
