What is MM2H Programme?

It’s a program initiated by the Government of Malaysia and introduced by the Ministry of Tourism and Culture (MOTAC) to welcome people from all over the world to reside in this beautiful country. 

Upon becoming an MM2H holder, you will obtain an MM2H visit pass which has a validity of up to 10 years, and it is renewable upon fulfilment of the renewal requirement when it expires.

The duration of visa depends on your passport validity, so it’s best to renew your passport to get the maximum years of visa. Nevertheless, you can easily extend your visa provided you have all the required documents and financial capacity. 

However, bear in mind that this is not a Permanent Residence (PR) Permit nor does it lead towards you getting a PR eventually. You will simply possess a Social Visit Pass with multiple entries and exit under the MM2H program.
