Report Of Person Presumed Dead (Sarawak)

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Section 9 of the Births and Deaths Registration Ordinance (Sarawak Cap. 10) clearly states that the registration of death of a person in Malaysia is allowed only on condition that the body is found. For persons that the High Court has classified as presumed to be dead, the court will issue an order declaring that the person is legally presumed dead.

 

The NRD will not register or issue a death certificate for a person presumed dead. However, it will update the NRD system with information of the person that the High Court has declared to be presumed dead. For matters relating to a person who has been presumed dead, the next of kin must use the court order issued by the High Court.

 

Application to update the information of persons who are presumed dead by court order will be handled only by the NRD headquarters in Putrajaya. The application may also be submitted at the NRD of a state capital to be forwarded to the NRD headquarters in Putrajaya.
