The Malaysian Home Affairs Ministry has appointed My EG Services (MyEG) to undertake repatriation of illegal foreign workers for the Immigration Department, reports The Edge Markets.

The tenure of the job, offered via a letter dated 10 October, spans from 10 October to 31 December this year, according to MyEG.

In a filing with Bursa Malaysia, the electronic services provider said, “The project has no fixed value, as it is dependent on the number of foreign workers successfully repatriated.”

An agreement will be signed with the authority in due course to formalise the acceptance of the project, said MyEG.

Earlier in the year, MyEG landed a contract extension to manage illegal foreign workers (except for workers from Myanmar) under the rehiring programme which began on Aug 15, 2016 and is due to end on Dec 31 this year.
