UNHCR mobile registration exercise for migrants

KUALA LUMPUR (UNHCR): The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is undertaking a Mobile Registration exercise for unregistered asylum-seekers in Malaysia.

This exercise will be held in stages, in several locations across Malaysia, and will take place from 2 September 2013 through to the end of the year/early 2014.

The purpose of this exercise is to register some populations of unregistered asylum seekers found to be in need of international protection.

Only unregistered asylum-seekers who are already in Malaysia and whose names are already on UNHCR’s list will be registered during this exercise.

The persons who are on the list will be contacted directly by UNHCR and will be given a Code and information on where they should go for the exercise.

If you were given a Code but cannot remember the location of where to go, you can call the Mobile Registration Hotline at 0126534791 and 0126534826, which operate from 8.00am – 10.00pm every day.

Only asylum seekers who have received the Code by UNHCR before the start of the exercise will be registered.

Asylum-seekers who come to the venue without the code that was given by UNHCR will not be registered and are asked to wait for the next exercise.

Please remember that all services provided by UNHCR for refugees are free. For information on the Mobile Registration dates and venues, call the Mobile Registration Hotline: 0126534791 and 0126534826. (8am – 10pm daily)

For general information about the Mobile Registration exercise, contact the UNHCR Community Development Unit at 03 2118 4800.
