Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) Programme

Are you looking for a home away from home?

The Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme offers attractive incentives for INTERNATIONAL VISITORS who wish to purchase a house or reside in Malaysia.


The programme is designed to allow citizens of countries recognised by Malaysia, to remain in the country on a 10-year renewable social visit pass with a multiple entry visa. This means while the pass is valid, you and your family can visit Malaysia as often as you want during this period.

In addition, participants can also enjoy various incentives such as tax-free purchase of 1 vehicle (or import your existing vehicle), incentives for house purchase, education and domestic help.

Participants of the programme are allowed to purchase up to 2 units of residential properties priced more than RM350,000 (apprx USD$100,000) in states of Johor, Penang or Sarawak (certain areas). As for other states (including Kuala Lumpur), the residential properties you can purchase can be as low as RM250,000 (apprx USD$70,000). This makes Malaysia an ideal, affordable place to live in.

Please note that participants are allowed to purchase all types of properties except low-cost and medium-low-cost units, properties on Malay reserve land, units reserved for the indigenous / bumiputra group, and agricultural land developed as a homestead.

The procedure for acquiring the residential unit under the programme is as follows:

  1. Identify the property you intend to purchase.
  2. Research the property; ensure Certificate of Fitness is available for completed property, seek advice from valuers on developers reputation for properties under construction
  3. Engage the services of a lawyer for the signing of a Sales and Purchase Agreement (S&P).
  4. Obtain a recommendation letter from the Ministry of Tourism certifying your status as an MM2H participant.
  5. Submit details of the property and other documents, including the S&P to the state authorities and Land Office for evaluation and approval. The approved agreement can then be stamped by the Inland Revenue Board (IRB)
  6. Purchase the property by cash payment, or obtain financing from a local bank in Malaysia. Some of the strong supporters of this programme are Maybank and HSBC Bank.
