Visa & Immigration for Expats in Kuala Lumpur

With a steadily growing economy,  tropical weather, abundant sunshine, high living standards and little language barriers, Kuala Lumpur regularly features as one of the most attractive destinations for expats.

Key visa & immigration tips you should know as an expat in Kuala Lumpur
  • There are two types of visas for you to move to Kuala Lumpur, namely single-entry and multiple-entry.
  • The single-entry visa is valid for up to three months and best suited for expats on a short-term business project in Malaysia.
  • In case you’re staying for longer, the multiple-entry visa is a better fit as it’s valid for three to twelve months.
  • If you’re planning to stay for more than a year, you are required to apply for an employment pass and receive approval from responsible government bodies.
  • The employment pass should be applied before you move to Malaysia. To apply for this, you have to submit an application supported by a list of documents. 
  • It’s best to enlist the help of a skilled immigration specialist to help you manage the documentation process and ensure that you get an immigration approval letter for your employment pass.
  • Expats can apply for permanent residency if looking to move permanently. However, there is a set of criteria that expats need to meet before permanent residency can be granted.
