Can i apply dependent pass as i have 4 months of EP validity


I have shifted to Malaysia 8 months back, now i am thinking to shift my wife also, but I came to know that there should min 6 months of validity of EP to apply dependent pass. but i have only 4 months of validity now. I already discussed with my hr for renewal and they said ok to do renewal.

The main Concern is if we apply for renewal now, will it count from my current EP expiry date or from the date which renewal is approved?

as my employer don't want to lose the 4 months validity, so i want to know is there any alternative to apply dependent pass/any other visa for these 4 months? my employer  ready to release a letter like ready to renewal if necessary.

Please update me if any one have idea about this.

Thanks in advance...
