Immigration Dept ends rehiring programme, impacts MyEG and two others

My EG Services is among the five Malaysian companies on Forbes

PETALING JAYA: E-government services provider, MyEG Services Bhd, whose share price has come under pressure since the change in government will be dealt with another blow by end of June.

Its contract to provide services for the Immigration Department under the re-hiring of undocumented foreign workers scheme would be terminated by end of the month.

According to the report by an online news website, the services of three company --  MyEG Services Sdn Bhd, Iman Resources Sdn Bhd and Bukti Megah Sdn Bhd – would be terminated by end of the month.

It quoted Immigration Department’s director general Mustafar Ali as saying that the rehiring process of undocumented foreign workers would end by June 30.

The Immigration Department had contracted the three companies to undertake the re-hiring of undocumented foreign workers programmes since January 2016.

The award of the contracts to the three companies in the past has come under criticism as the view taken was that the department could handle it by themselves or call for a competitive bid to open up the exercise to more companies.

MyEG provides several services to government departments such as the Road Transport Department and Immigration Department. Among the more popular services is the renewal of road tax and insurance and permits for foreign workers.
