PETALING JAYA: Beginning July 6, the immigration department will handle all matters related to the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme which allows foreigners to stay in the country for a period of 10 years.
In a statement last night, immigration director-general Khairul Dzaimee Daud said all parties with MM2H matters to attend to would need to go to the immigration department headquarters in Putrajaya.
“Only applications (for visa holders) to return to Malaysia will still go through the tourism, arts and culture ministry.”
This follows a report that the MM2H centre in the tourism ministry had been closed “until further notice”, amid talk that 90% of applications for the programme had been rejected.
