A fully-online Integrated Immigration System will be developed to replace the Malaysia Immigration System (myIMMs) which has been in use for more than 20 years, said Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
He said the decision to replace the myIMMs was made at the last Cabinet meeting as the Immigration Department needed an integrated system that would be really efficient with up-to-date technology.
“The new system which may be known as myIMMs Global was proposed as among the efforts to increase Immigration’s service capacity, besides replacing other patch-on systems used by the department currently.
“We expect this new system to be able to fully replace the role of myIMMs in at least two years from now,” Muhyiddin said at a news conference after officiating at the Immigration Day 2018 celebration here today, adding that the existing system would be used as usual until that time.
He said the Cabinet also agreed to scrap the RM3.5 billion National Immigration Control System (SKIN) project implementation, with the decision made based on the need for a new system that would be more comprehensive, efficient, user-friendly and of more monetary value, as well as saving government funds.
