Two years ago, we renewed our maid’s work permit at Damansara Town Centre. However, in October 2011, the Damansara Town Centre Immigration Dept moved to Jln Duta.
Where we were pleased with the speed in which the maid’s work permit was issued previously in Damansara Town Centre Immigration Office, at Jalan Duta, we were amazed with the even faster issuance of the maid’s work permit. Kudos to the Immigration Department at Jalan Duta.
We went there during the school holidays. We had just taken the kids to Kidzania where they played non stop till the session closed at 3pm. Right after that, we headed to Jalan Duta Immigration Office. Imagine going to a department at 3.30pm to 4pm. It was so late. Surely, we can’t get everything processed within the same day?
Well, we sat there. Hubby queued up for a number. I took the kids to the washroom. When we returned, hubby was queueing up to pay. He was told to go to another counter to collect the passport with the work permit stamp on it. He walked over to the counter and hey presto! the passport was waiting for him. All done, we were able to return home before the after work jam begins. Amazing isn’t it? Amazing but wonderful. Maybe it’s just my lucky day.
Here are the details for anyone who wants to go to the Jln Duta Immigration Office to renew their maid’s work permit.
