Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) software is temporarily frozen for the Ministry of Tourism, Arts, and Culture(MOTAC) to completely reevaluate.
The move also correlates to the government's decision not to allow foreign nationals into the country because of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the Minister's statement today.
“Among the matters to be studied are the conditions, incentives, and comparisons with MM2H-like programmes in other countries such as the Citizenship by Investment (CBI) or Residence by Investment (RBI).
“During the MM2H freeze period, MOTAC as coordinator of the programme is unable to process new applications forwarded to it. This takes into consideration that the processing of the MM2H applications involves various ministries and agencies which are also impacted by the temporary freeze.
“However, if there are foreigners still interested to participate in the programme, they can submit their applications after the programme is reactivated but they need to meet the prevailing set conditions,” said in the statement.
For information on obtaining a suitable immigration pass for residents in Malaysia over a long period, foreign nationals can also refer to the Department of Immigration Malaysia.
“MOTAC assures that the results of the study which will synergise with current needs will benefit all the stakeholders,” it said.
The Ministry hopes all parties will support the government to improve the MM2H program to fit that of other countries.
