Temporary Suspension Of Malaysia My Second Home Programme (MM2H)1. The Government of Malaysia has decided to temporarily suspend the Malaysia My Second Home Program (MM2H) to allow Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture (MOTAC) and related agencies to comprehensively review and re-evaluate the MM2H program since its inception in 2002.The suspension is in line with the Government's decision not to allow foreigners to enter Malaysia following the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic.
2. MM2H program will be reviewed based on the criteria, conditions, incentives as well as comparative study to equivalent MM2H Program, such as Citizenship by Investment (CBI) or Residence by Investment (RBI).
3. During the suspension, MOTAC is unable to process any new applications including applications that have already been submitted. This is because the processing of MM2H applications involves various Ministries and Agencies which roles are also affected by the suspension.
4. Therefore, foreigners who are still interested to participate in the MM2H Program are welcomed to reapply once the MM2H Program is reactivated but must abide to the current requirements. Apart from that, foreigners are advised to pursue other visa offered by the Immigration Department Malaysia which ever deem appropriate.
5. MOTAC is confident that all stakeholders will benefit from the outcome of this study, which will be synergized with the existing needs of the MM2H program. MOTAC also hopes that all related parties can support the Government's intention to improve the MM2H Program so that the revised MM2H program will be comparable with other similar programs internationally.
