Immigration Dept to take over MM2H applications from October


PETALING JAYA: The Immigration Department will start handling new applications for the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme from October, taking over from the Tourism, Arts and Culture Ministry (Motac).

The move follows the Home Ministry’s announcement on MM2H on Aug 11.

“As all the processes related to legality and laws have been sorted out, all new applications will be processed and handled by the Immigration Department from October 2021.

“During this transition period, Motac, through the MM2H Centre, will handle matters related to existing participants until Sept 15.

“After that, all matters related to existing application processing and logistics services will be taken over completely by the Immigration Department,” the ministry said in a statement yesterday.

It advised those seeking more information to log on to the Immigration Department’s website at https://www.imi.gov.my/ or call 03-8880 1555/1556.

The ministry also pledged to fully support the continuation of the MM2H programme so that it could contribute to the country’s economy and promote Malaysia on the international stage.

“We will continue to play a role in promoting the MM2H programme through Tourism Malaysia’s involvement in introducing Malaysia as a long-term stay destination, especially for retirees and high-income personalities,” it added.On Aug 11, Home Ministry secretary-general Datuk Wan Ahmad Dahlan Abdul Aziz said MM2H had been reactivated with several policy changes as part of a strategy under the National Recovery Plan to boost the country’s economy.

He said the temporary halt of the programme last year had enabled his ministry and Motac to re-evaluate it.
