Malaysia My Second Home Program

Under the Malaysia My Second Home Program a foreign national, and his or her dependents, may obtain a 10-year multiple entry visa if they make a fixed deposit in a Malaysian bank or invest in real estate. Prior to the visa's expiration, it can be renewed provided that requirements are still met.

This program is aimed at retirees and persons of independent means that wish to establish residency in Malaysia. The visa does not allow working in the country, with certain exceptions, and does not entitle its holder to be eligible for a permanent residency permit, neither citizenship.


Applicants aged below 50 years

Applicant must have liquid assets of at least MYR500,000, a monthly regular income of at least MYR10,000 and make a fixed deposit in a Malaysian bank of MYR300,000, half of which can be withdrawn to buy a house, purchase health insurance or pay for their children’s education.

After two years, part of the deposit may be withdrawn to use the car purchase concession, as long as a minimum balance of MYR150,000 is maintained during the entire stay in Malaysia under the program.

Visa holders may purchase property without restriction, provided that the minimum price established for foreigners in the state where they make the purchase is applied. Usually the minimum price is MYR1m, but there are states like Penang with a lower minimum. Buyers must receive state approval, which can take up to six months. They may also apply for a bank loan. Local banks will require proof of repayment capability, since repayment is normally required when the borrower turns 65-70.

Other benefits include the duty-free, excise and sales tax-free import of an automobile owned by the visa holder requesting an approved permit (AP). As long as the car has been purchased prior to the date of the application and the application is carried out within a period not exceeding 6 months after the issuance of the visa, and is imported within a maximum period of 2 years. Visa holders can also purchase a tax-free Malaysian car during the first year of the visa.


- A Malaysian sponsor is required to support the application and place a personal bond up to MYR2,000 before the visa is issued.
- Have medical insurance from any insurance company that is valid in Malaysia.
- Undergo a medical examination in any private hospital or clinic registered in Malaysia.
- Police clearance certificate from the country of origin to prove that the applicant has no criminal record.
