MM2H Application Procedures


You could complete the Application yourself or with an agent……

Applicants have the option of using an approved MM2H agent or submitting their application directly. Filing the application would be comfortable for those who meet the requirements accurately and are able to find their way through various government departments. Using an agent will make the process much easier and  would avoid the need to place a cash security bond (as the agent will sponsor you) but of course involves paying fee to the agent for his services.

Make sure you opt for a travel agency that has been approved by the Ministry of Tourism. These can be identified by the initials (MM2H) in their company name. We are an approved MM2H agent and can assist with your application. Our fees set are in tune with the guidelines set by the Ministry.


The MM2H Application can be submitted while the applicant is in Malaysia or from overseas. Once the committee reviews the documents and approves the application, a letter of ‘Conditional Approval’ would be issued to them, wherein the  applicant would get six months to complete the remaining conditions (obtain medical insurance, complete the medical examination and open the fixed deposit, as  mentioned below) and collect the visa.

Original submission:

Please find below the list of documents required to complete the entire process, some at the time of original submission and others after receiving the letter of conditional approval:

* Covering letter

* 4 passport sized photographs of applicant and spouse (if accompanied by spouse).
