About 30,000 Malaysians are overstaying in the United Kingdom, says deputy High Commissionner Rustam Yahaya in London.
Bernama reports, this prompted the Malaysian High Commission to appeal for them to leave whatever they are doing there and return to Malaysia.
He was commenting on recent reports that Britain was considering expanding visa requirements to citizens from 11 more countries, including Malaysia.
Nationals from more than 100 countries, equivalent to three-quarters of the world's population, need a visa to come to the United Kingdom but following a "Visa Waiver Test" of all non-European countries, the government said there was a "strong case" to add 11 more.
At least, Malaysians know best when it comes to choosing a better place to 'overstay'. One thing for sure, they were never involved in any criminal activities, unlike some foreigners who overstayed in Malaysia.
Anyway, its time for them to come home and look out for opportunities here, rather than leaving it to others.
Normally, when we leave home for too long, some 'hantus' may take control...
