“Malaysia My Second Home” promoted in China

Shanghai/Kuala Lumpur- Tourism Malaysia was invited to promote the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme in Shanghai, China, recently to a niche clientele of Bank of China who represent some of the city’s top business people.

Chairman of Tourism Malaysia, Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Dr. Ng Yen Yen, delivered a presentation on the benefits of becoming a MM2H participant at the MM2H National Summit organised by Bank of China, citing Malaysia’s sound living environment, quality lifestyle, friendly citizens and politically stable environment as the backbone of the programme.

She said, “As a country with Malaysian Chinese accounting for 24% of its population and with well-preserved Chinese culture, Malaysia makes an ideal environment for Chinese participants to easily integrate into the local society.”

The MM2H programme is a long term stay visa programme to attract participants from all over the world to live and invest in Malaysia upon retirement. It is an initiative by the Malaysian government and allows foreigners who meet certain criteria to stay in Malaysia on a multiple-entry social visit pass. Applicants are allowed to bring their spouse and unmarried children as dependants. The MM2H visit pass is initially issued for a period of ten years, and is renewable thereafter.

Between January and September 2014, the total number of MM2H participants stands at 2,506, with China participants recording 47.1% of the share (1,180 participants), making it the top ranking country in the programme. Source: traveldailynews
