Malaysia is one of Southeast Asia’s most vibrant economies, due to its continued industrial growth and political stability over the past few decades. It is a highly open upper-middle income economy and the third largest economy in this region. After gaining independence from the UK, Malaysia joined the British Commonwealth. It is a member of the United Nations, APEC, and a founding member of ASEAN.
As one of the Southeast Asia’s key tourist destinations, located near the equator, Malaysia offers excellent beaches, breathtaking scenery and dense rainforests.
Since the inception of Malaysia’s My Second Home (MM2H) Program in 2002, more than 35,000 applicants have been approved. The program allows foreigners who fulfil certain criteria to stay in Malaysia on a multiple-entry social visit pass.
