Following the rapid vaccination process conducted in Malaysia, Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced that from August 10th 2021, the government will relax the SOP measures for all those who have completed their vaccination and states under the second phase of the National Recovery Plan and above. The prime minister also sent the good news to ‘Malaysia’s My Second Home’ (MM2H) investors, allowing them to have accommodation in Malaysia under the Home Surveillance Order (HSO) for home isolation and observation.
The Prime Minister explained that the term ‘fully vaccinated’ refers to “persons who have passed 14 days after their second jab of the double-dose vaccines, such as Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Sinovac.
For single-dose vaccines like Johnson & Johnson and CanSino, 28 days must pass.
Since its launch in 2002, the MM2H program has provided qualified foreigners with free entry and exit visas for ten years. Over the years, it has been favoured by overseas investors, with the highest proportion of investors coming from China. It is also worth noting that the MM2H scheme is open to all countries.
However, amid the outbreak of the global epidemic, the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture of Malaysia announced a freeze in 2020, and the authorities will also conduct a comprehensive review and evaluation of the relevant plans.
At the beginning of this year, the government stated that they would restart the MM2H program this year, but no relevant news has come up so far.
