Question about KUL international connection

I am considering a quick status run on MH metal, DPS-KUL-CGK, so, Indonesia to Indonesia, same day, one ticket, with a quick transit in KUL. Do I have to clear immigration at KUL to board the second flight? And do I have to clear immigration again at CGK? Is this considered that I am exiting and re-entering Indonesia? I will not exit the airport in KUL, I am just transiting...no baggage at all.

If itís all on one ticket you donít have to clear immigration in KUL, and even if itís not all on one ticket I suspect you can do OLCI or get a boarding pass from the transfer desks, providing you do not have checked luggage to deal with

youíll have to clear immigration leaving Indonesia and then again when reentering Indonesia though

Not sure of the transit arrangements at T3 at CGK, but just wondering if you are trying to do a turnaround to the same MH aircraft?

Thanks for the responses. It's an one way ticket.

OK, then yes you will need to go through customs and immigration at CGK. The fact that you did not enter Malaysia makes no difference.

What about cabotage? I tried to do this search on MH.com and if I add DPS as the departure point I can't select an Indonesian destination (well, only Medan). Same if I select CGK as the departure point.

I'd be dubious if this offered on a single ticket.

ĎCabotageí already addressed in a separate thread:
Is this a legal itinerary? Cabotage?

There are a number of people who have reported being able to ticket and fly such fares, also purchasing from MH directly.
