What are the documents needed to apply for the MM2H Visa?

Participants may apply here.

  • Certified copy of birth certificates (if accompanied by children or parents)
  • Certified copy of bank statements including salary slips and other financial documents to show proof of income as per requirement of MM2H

MM2H participants and the property purchase decision

It’s possible to buy a high-rise property in urban areas from RM600,000 to RM1 million.

Just need to note that requirements in every state would depend on the state government. So, so check with a registered property agent on the threshold for your state of choice.

Buyers of properties in Malaysia gets the SAME RIGHTS and PROTECTIONS as a local property buyer. There are also no specific restrictions such as foreigner quota per project or being forbidden from buying freehold properties like some countries. There are also no requirements such as selling the property only to other foreigners too. So, yes, purchasing a property in Malaysia for foreigners can be considered a good decision. The only limitation would be the price threshold by state.

Who do I contact if I am interested to apply for MM2H?

Comments from for potential MM2H participants

Happy applying and yes, I definitely think Malaysia is a wonderful country for foreigners. We love people who love our country. So it’s easy for any foreigner to get good friends here in Malaysia. Please feel free to compare Malaysia to many often mentioned country names in some other parts of the world yeah. MM2H is a second-home programme for participants but as a home, we are second to none.

Just need to remember that most liveable and best for retirement cities are two different lists. Penang for retirement? Google for them and you will understand. Go for value yeah unless we have unlimited amount of retirement money, then go anywhere and one could still drop by Malaysia for a few weeks every year to enjoy a different place too.

Whether it’s white sandy beaches to amazing rainforests and even numerous UNESCO World Heritage Sites or you just love to shop, we have it all.
