Henley & Partners will assist with this process.
Thereafter, full approval will be granted and the applicant and their included family receive their long-term multiple-entry visas to Malaysia (10 years under the MM2H program and 20 years under the PVIP). The whole process takes three to six months.
Both the initial MM2H visa and the PVIP visa are valid for an initial period of five years and can be renewed thereafter.
