Dear Sir; I want to ask some help from your good office. I am an Indian national living in Malaysia for almost 6 years. My passport was expired last 2007, but until now i was not able to renew because of some supporting documents they need to support which i cannot give. The High Commission here in Malaysia are asking many documents which are not related to renewal of passport. They are also asking high fees which most of the Indian nationals cannot afford, compared to other embassy. I made a letter to the Jalandher office but no reply. How can we work here legally if our own High Commission will give us difficulties. The malaysian government help the foreigners to work legally. The bottom line of my letter is just, we need help how to get or renew a passport with out so much difficulties, we are here to give our family a good future whom we left in India. We are hoping you can give attention on this matter... Repectfully yours; CHARANJIT SINGH
