Of visa, work permit business and things
yet another new boy trying to understand Malaysian law.
I have been reading official and unoffical information about being an expat in Malaysia and I am totally lost in the maze of options all of which seem to draw a blank in terms of working in Malaysia.
I work as a freelance consultant, and would like to start working in Malaysia, however, how can I do this legally ?
Work permits - require a sponsor, I work free lance, no sponsor
Sole trader - needs an ID card, not resident so do have an ID card
Ltd company - need 2 Mayalsia directors plus co sec etc etc, my business doesnt justify this level of organisation
MM2H - can only work 20 hours per week, my clients tend to want 40 plus
VOA - only allowed to work in a limited capacity
Residency - needs a recomendation or marriage
Advise from anybody welcome on how this can be achived
