MM2H Malaysia

Post Posted: Wed Jan 02, 2008 9:31 pm

My wife a I are thinking of a move to Malaysia as part of MM2H. We would like information from anyone who may have used this visa and how it has worked out for them and is it better to rent or buy property?

Hi Johnnerontheroad

My husband and I relocated to Malaysia in September 2006. We are from Australia and have been home about three times in that period - each time quite briefly. We have had no trouble with our visa, we did all the leg work ourselves but I believe that now you have to go through a licensed agent. I assume you know what the requirements are to get the MM2H visa. We have just bought a house here - we were advised to wait about twelve months before buying to make sure we knew where we wanted to live etc. We rented a house for that period in Batu Ferringhi and that is where we have bought our house. I think it is definately a good idea to rent first because you might find you don't like it for some reason.

We are very happy here and love the lifestyle, the people are very nice and most are friendly. We did live here in the 1980's for three years so we had some idea of what the life is like. I really can't see why anyone wouldn't be happy here.

If you would like any further information and if we can help you in any way please do not hesitate to contact us at jval1217@yahoo.com.au Regards Julie
