Malaysia to ease long-term business visa policy

malaysia-visaMalaysia’s prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said on June 13 that the country plans to introduce multiple entry visas for up to five years for qualified business investors and fund managers to visit the country and examine business opportunities.

The purpose of the relaxed visa policy was to attract top expatriate talent and long-term investors, he added, Furthermore, Malaysia has begun reaching out directly to expatriate corporate leaders by offering 10-year residence passes. 1,600 of such passes had already been approved, Najib said.

In April 2013, Malaysia’s Immigration Department launched an expatriate services division to provide a focal point for the immigration needs of top global talent.
