Welcome Note

My name is Andy Davison. As an Englishman who chose to come and settle in Malaysia, after over 25 years travelling around the world with a major multinational corporation, I have no hesitation in recommending it as a place to live.

I started this website to offer information about the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme. It was launched several years ago by the Malaysian government and offers a renewable, ten-year, multiple entry visa for qualified applicants who would like to come and live here or spend extended periods in the country.

The MM2H programme is one of the most attractive long term stay visa programmes we have come across in Asia and there are many reasons why Malaysia is an excellent choice to retire or spend extended periods here.

This website offers information about the programme and the country. For those who still have questions, take advantage of our free Help Desk. If you eventually decide to apply for a visa we are an approved agent and can assist you.

Many Malaysians do not realise that the MM2H programme is very good for Malaysia not just a great place for foreigners to live and take advantage of everything the country has to offer. If you would like to know more about why it’s good for Malaysia then click here.

We look forward to seeing you here.

RUMOURS SPREADING ABOUT MM2H PROGRAMME BEING SHUT DOWN – IT’S NOT TRUE

There are various stories spreading about the government planning to close down the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme.  Some of this appears to be linked to comments made by the Prime Minister about not permitting foreign nationals to take over parts of Malaysia for business or residential developments. The initial comments were focused on Forest City, a large development in Johor which the developer was only marketing to Chinese from China. (We approached them about marketing to other foreigners and they were not interested)

We have been assured by our contacts that there are no plans to close down the programme. The only significant change as far as we know is that the approval process is no longer being conducted by the Ministry of Tourism with immigration but will be handled by the Ministry of Home Affairs (KDN). That’s the ministry in charge of state security, among other things. It’s not clear why this move was considered necessary as the immigration department were already very careful about whom they approved but it does seem that someone felt it necessary to tighten up the process.

One problem is that there is quite a big arrears in approving applications with several thousand applications still being processed. People who submitted in May are still awaiting approval. Also the Ministry of Home Affairs has not yet advised their guideline time for approving applications. It used to be 90 days but clearly that is no longer valid. It does leave agents in a difficult situation when they cannot advise their clients when their applications will be approved, especially when they originally gave them an estimated three month time frame.

The new government is facing many challenges and clearly some things are moving faster than others We can only ask applicants to please be patient and hopefully the new year will see things moving again.
