Malaysia Suspends MM2H Golden Visa Program

 

The Malaysian government has temporarily frozen the extremely popular Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) residence by investment program, according to a statement from the Southeast Asian country’s Ministry of Tourism and Culture.

Deputy Minister of Tourism, Mr. Ebadi, confirmed Malaysia’s cabinet had temporarily suspended the program, but did not provide any details as to the suspension’s duration or motive, Singapore’s 联合早报 reports.

The MM2H is one of the world’s most popular golden visas, rivaling those of the US and Greece. Since the opening in 2002, a reported 39,973 individuals (presumably including dependents) have received residence permits in Malaysia through the MM2H, about a third of whom are Chinese nationals.
