The application for the extension of temporary work permit for foreign workers (PLKS) under the rehiring programme will be opened on Monday (Dec 20), says the Immigration Department.按照马来西亚移民局的口径，临时工签PLKS在再雇佣计划里面的政策将会被在下周一重新放开申请。
Its director-general Datuk Khairul Dzaimee Daud said the programme started in 2016 with the aim of giving opportunities for undocumented immigrants working in Malaysia, for a maximum of five years, to cater to manpower needs in permitted sectors.这个2016年开始启动的计划旨在给与在大马务工外劳一个再续签的计划，这个最长的期限最多不超过五年。
"As of Nov 30, the department recorded 185,577 active PLKS under the programme.目前大概18万人有望转正。
"PLKS, which is valid for five years, will end in phases starting this year until 2024," he said in a statement on Wednesday (Dec 15).一旦搞定，满足条件的外劳可以续签五年。
To avoid shortage of manpower especially in 3D (dirty, difficult, dangerous) sectors, Khairul Dzaimee said the government has agreed on Nov 19 that the PLKS period under the programme is extended yearly for a maximum of five years, depending on needs.重开这个计划的目的当然是为了解决目前三高行业的劳工紧缺问题。
Six main items that need the attention of employers, who hired workers under the programme are both employers and workers do not violate requirement for the passes; workers that have been blacklisted cannot apply for extension; workers cannot change employers or sectors except through a special approval of the Home Ministry; only employers and valid representatives of employers can apply for the extension; PLKS extension will only be allowed online through ePLKS or MyEG, and consideration for PLKS extension depends on enforcement of foreign worker employment procedures.这里需要注意的是，被移民局黑名单过的人不能申请延期，工人不能自己换行业，这个流程需要雇主来操作，目前来说PLKS的延长申请需要通过在线申请，从ePLKS或者MyEG平台来做这个事。
Khairul Dzaimee urged all employers to take the opportunity to renew the PLKS of their workers.
"Employers can get further details on employment duration for PLKS workers under the programme at the department's website at www.imi.gov.my.更新政策相关的信息各位去看移民局官网吧，好了涉及到移民局疑难杂症、马来西亚大学文凭获取及燕窝贸易的都可以找小曹咨询一下，thanks。赞赏
