I'm working in Malaysia on tourist visa.how to apply my visa convert in works permit

Kushik - you need to leave the country while the work permit/foreign worker pass is being processed. It is a new rule which started in August 2016.

What's new rules of Malaysia immigration of work parmit

The application (Stage I) by the employer to immigration, has to be done while you are not in Malaysia. Once the work permit is approved, then you can re-enter and the employer will get the wp endorsed (Stage II) in your passport.

Don't pay an Agent any money to get an employment pass.

If the employer submits the application while you are still in Malaysia (they can see this because a copy of every page of the passport has to be provided) then immigration will just return the application and ask you to provide proof that you have exited the country. Therefore, it causes delays to submit the appliction if not outside Malaysia.

Generally how long time is required for application stage 1 ?

About 3-4 weeks to get Stage I approval (as long as the employer submits the correct papers and there are no Public Holidays - there are 2 upcoming this week). A lot depends on the volume of applications and backlog at various approval stages.  Getting a Visa with Reference VDR can take a long time (1-2 months). That may be a requirement to enter Malaysia to take up the job. Stage II takes about 2 weeks to process, once you hand your passport to the employer.

How can we check the status of stage I  ?
I have submitted the paper to employer on 16th Aug 2017.
