MM2H Criteria to Apply – Overview of the Program
Malaysia My Second Home Program was initiated by Malaysia Government to welcome all foreigners together with their families including their children aged under 21, to reside in Malaysia for good by granting an initial 5 years’ multiple entry visa with indefinite renewals as long as the participants do not contravene with Malaysia’s law. After MM2H approval is obtained, the participants can invite their parents (of aged 60 and above) to join them to stay permanently in Malaysia. [Why Important to Have Support & Services from Us?]
