The Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme is temporarily frozen to allow the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture (MOTAC) and related agencies to re-evaluate the programme.
According to a statement from the ministry on 4th August 2020, the suspension is aligned with the government’s decision of not allowing the entry of foreign nationals due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
MOTAC will be reviewing the programme based on the criteria, conditions, incentives as well as comparative study to equivalent MM2H Programme, such as Citizenship by Investment (CBI) or Residence by Investment (RBI).
Throughout the suspension period, the ministry will not be available to process any new applications including the applications that already have been submitted.
The reason for this is because the processing of MM2H applications involves various Ministries and Agencies which roles are also affected by the suspension.
Foreigners who still show interest in participating in the MM2H Programme are welcomed to reapply once the MM2H Programme is reactivated, but they have to abide by the prevailing set requirements.
Besides that, foreign nationals can also refer to the Immigration Department for information on obtaining an alternative permit or visa to reside in Malaysia long term.
MOTAC remains hopeful that all related parties can support the Government’s aim to improve the MM2H programme so that the updated MM2H programme will be comparable with other similar programmes globally.
