Malaysia: My Second Home (MM2H) (Remote Work Visa)

The Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) visa lets remote workers and their family move to Malaysia. 



Remote workers, freelancers, and self-employed people can move to Malaysia with their family for 10 years through the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) program. This program is not a path to Permanent Residence in Malaysia.

Malaysia’s tourism slogan “Truly Asia” captures its unique appeal. Malaysia’s society combines elements of Malay, Chinese, Indian, Indonesian, and Southeast Asian cultures, creating a multiethnic country with incredibly varied languages, traditions, and foods. 

Kuala Lumpur is a futuristic city with well-developed infrastructure and a high standard of living. Penang and Malacca let you explore Malaysia’s fascinating history, Cameroon Highlands offers hiking and working tea plantations in its cool, lush mountains, and Langkawi and the Perhentian Islands are unrivaled beach destinations.
