Marine Clearance

Upon arrival, Marine Clearance needs to be obtained from the Marine Department of Sarawak, Jabatan Laut Sarawak Miri. The office is located in Jalan Kubu, Beg Berkunci No. 18, opposite the Sikh Temple, at walking distance from the Marina. From Monday to Thursday, their office is open from 8:00 am to 12:30 pm and from 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm. On Friday, the office closes for the prayers between 11:45 am and 2:15 pm.

Immigration Clearance

Passport/Travel Documents

Visitors to Malaysia must be in possession of valid passport/travel documents with a minimum validity of six months beyond the period of intended stay.

Every visitor to Malaysia has to fill in a Disembarkation Card (IMM. 26). The card has to be handed over to the Immigration Officer on arrival together with the national passport or other internationally recognized travel document endorsed for travel into Malaysia. A passport/travel document is also necessary for travel between Sabah and Sarawak.

The immigration Department, Pejabat Imigresen Bahagian Miri (085-434527) , is located like the Customs in Jalan Persekutuan near the Civic Centre and the Miri City Fan.
