Residence-by-Investment Malaysia

The MM2H Program requires applicants to meet certain criteria and in exchange, applicants and their dependents are granted a 10-year multiple-entry visa. This is effectively a residence permit, enabling the successful applicant and their family to live in Malaysia.

Procedures and Time Frame

The Ministry of Tourism and Culture is responsible for the processing of all applicants. The Immigration Unit will issue a conditional approval letter to each approved applicant.

Upon receiving the conditional approval letter, the applicant needs to travel to Malaysia and fulfil the remaining requirements:

  • Open a bank account in Malaysia and transfer the fixed deposit
  • Purchase medical insurance from any insurance company in Malaysia
  • Obtain a medical report from any private hospital or registered clinic in Malaysia

After submission of the fixed deposit certificate, the medical insurance policy and the medical report, the applicant may collect their MM2H visa.

It is important to note that the visa does not allow the holder to work in Malaysia and it does not lead to permanent residence.
