Did you know that there are about 10,500 Malaysians who are in Australia illegally and that is actually more than any other nationality in the world?

It was actually stated by the Australian Department of Home Affairs that Malaysia passport holders enjoy a smoother journey into the country and the entry process has been labelled as “the lightest touch,” thanks to good diplomatic relations between the countries.

Due to this reason, criminal syndicates have been using counterfeiting networks in Malaysia to bring illegals into Australia and exploiting the cosy international relationship between the two countries.

In an investigation done by ABC News, it has been discovered that human traffickers have helped illegal immigrants from other countries to get fake Malaysian identities and enter Australia easily.

The news agency reported that they met with a Vietnamese man who has been staying in Malaysia for the past five months. He told them about his ordeal of waiting for all the documents that will allow him to enter Australia. He said that he had been trapped in a hotel room with 37 other Vietnamese who were promised that they would arrive at Australia safely with a job.

The report mentioned,

“It is believed the number of Malaysian unlawful non-citizens has almost doubled since 2015. The Australian Border Force said that the total number of overstayers has remained ‘relatively static’ at about 63,000.”

So, how much does one need to pay to get a fake Malaysia passport? According to the report, anyone within the ASEAN region would only need to travel to Malaysia and apply for their fake identity which will only cost them as little as RM3,849.

One of the reasons why Malaysians can enter the country so easily is also the ability to apply for the Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) online which is exclusive to eight countries in the world.

The report also stated that the authorities are working closely with Putrajaya to prevent further exploitation of the relationship with the two countries and stop people from using fake Malaysian passports to enter Australia. One of these methods include hiring Airline Liaison Officers in Malaysia who will keep an eye on flights going to Australia. These officers are “highly skilled in document examination, impostor detection and passenger assessment.”

If you see any suspicious activities in airports, do report them!
