  STATUS OF MALAYSIA MY SECOND HOME PROGRAMME

Friday 12/04/2019



PUTRAJAYA, April 12 (Bernama) -- Referring to an article in The Star dated 6 April 2019 titled “MM2H and excellent government initiative”, the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture Malaysia (MOTAC) would like to emphasize that the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) Programme is systematically progressing well since its implementation in 2002. The Ministry would also like to state that the MM2H Programme is an on-going programme and is still open for new applications.
 
The Cabinet has come to consensus on 5 September 2018 that new applications for MM2H Programme will only be approved by the Minister of Home Affairs, Malaysia. Nevertheless, in light of that, the existing committee that administers all the applications is retained and renamed as MM2H Review Committee (Jawatankuasa Peraku MM2H). The responsibility of this Committee is only to review and recommend the applications to Minister of Home Affairs, Malaysia. The Minister of Home Affairs, Malaysia shall be the sole person who has the power and full authority to approve any MM2H applications.
 
In addition, the MM2H Centre stationed in MOTAC Putrajaya is to act as Secretariat to the MM2H Review Committee.
 
On 4 March 2019, MOTAC has taken an immediate step to expedite the process of the outstanding 2018 applications for MM2H Programme. The Ministry has also established and embarked on a Special Task Force to collaborate with the Ministry of Home Affairs and its Agencies, the Immigration Department and the Royal Malaysian Police, in an effort to process all MM2H outstanding applications submitted and received in 2018 as well as in 2019. This exercise is expected to complete before end of June 2019.
 
In the meantime, MOTAC together with relevant agencies have taken several steps to improve the procedures and ensure that all new applications will be approved within 120 working days.
 
The Ministry is also in the midst of planning a comprehensive study to review the eco-system of the MM2H Programme including the processing mechanism to make it more viable and at the same time remains competitive in the migration industry.
