Foreigners not allowed to open certain types of businesses

Nor Hisham says the ban also includes foreign partnerships.

Twenty types of businesses have been singled out by Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) as being off limits to foreigners in the nation’s capital.

The ruling, which came into effect on July 20, prohibits foreign nationals from applying for a licence to open a hypermarket, supermarket, mini mart, sundry shop, 24-hour convenience store, petrol station and laundry service (refer to graphic for the full list).
