How to apply for MACS in Johor Bahru (For JB home owners)

This information is valid as at blog post date.

You've heard that Singaporeans can no longer apply for MACS at the Tuas JB Customs office. They have to apply in Singapore, which is very inconvenient, since you cannot get your passport back immediately or on the same day. However, there is still a leeway for Singaporeans who are official home owners in JB (and business owners/partners, but the focus here is for home ownerw - from own experience).

If you officially own a property in JB, you can still apply for MACS (The Malaysia Automated Clearance System) in JB. Children of the owners who are strictly below 18, can also apply for MACS in JB. It's costs RM30 per sticker.


Where to apply :
Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA)  
Address: #G- Block 8 80200, 1, Jalan Bertingkat Skudai, Danga Bay, 81200 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia
(MACS application counter on the ground floor to the left of the counter.)

Opening hours : 830am to 430pm


What you need to apply:
a. 1 passport photo
b. Your passport
c. A photocopy of your passport
d. A photocopy of the front page of your property purchase document, where your name and identification is indicated.
e. Bring the your property purchase document also, for verification.
f. Over there, you'll fill up a form.
g. RM30.00


Children who are strictly below 18 years old also may also apply. In case of children, what they'll need :
a. 1 passport photo
b. Their passport
c. A photocopy of their passport
d. A photocopy of the front page of Parent's property purchase document, where parent's name and identification is indicated.
e. Bring the the property purchase document also, for verification.
f. A photocopy of the child's birth certificate.
g. The child's birth certificate, for verification. Ensure that the identification number of parent's, matches the on on the property document.
h. Over there, you'll fill up a form.

Alas, for children 18 years old and above, or parents of the home owners, they still have to do it through Singapore.
