For the last 8 years, DHRRA has been relentlessly assisting Meeran Mohaideen through his Permanent Residency (PR) application process. It involved submitting necessary documents, producing numerous letters and supporting documents. A roller coaster ride is how he describes this journey.
Having arrived in Malaysia at the tender age of 8, he stayed on dependent visa. Till the completion of Secondary Schooling (Form 5), Meeran lived on Student Visa. To his despair, upon turning 21 years old he was ordered to leave the country by the Immigration Department. However, leaving the country was not a favourable choice as it meant leaving his parents who have rightfully obtained Malaysian Citizenship. As people say that Home is where your loved ones – your family resides.
Meeran is extremely happy to have finally received Permanent Residence (PR) status. In this moment of joy. let us be thankful for we are blessed to have a ‘home’.
