MALAYSIA MY SECOND HOME
The Malaysia My Second Home (MM2Hj is a programme promoted by the Malaysia Tourism Authority and the Immigration Department of Malaysia, to allow foreigners to stay in Malaysia for a period of ten(10) years. Foreigners who fulfills certain criteria of MM2H may apply, and the applicant is allowed to bring a spouse, an unmarried child under the age of 21 and parents who are over 60 years old.
Currently the Ministry of Tourism and Culture (MOTAC) is responsible for promoting MM2H, with approval of applicants and issuance of visas made directly by the Immigration Department of the Ministry of Home Affairs. A “MM2H One-Stop Centre” has been set up under the MOT and it is anticipated that all visa procedures will be transferred from the Immigration Department to the One-Stop Centre by the end of 2006. The Malaysian State of Sarawak has its own MM2H program under its Sarawak Tourism Board, that has slightly different requirements and incentives.
