Report: 1,822 MM2H participants left the country for good between 2015 and 2019

KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 29): Up to 1,822 Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) participants left the country for good between 2015 and 2019, Malaysiakini reported findings in the Auditor-General's Report 2019 Series 2.

Of this figure, 920 were from China, followed by Japan (214), South Korea (201) and Bangladesh (134).

The Auditor-General's Report highlighted this as part of the lack of “proper monitoring mechanisms in the programme”.

MM2H participants are required to enter Malaysia once within six months after their approval and are not required to stay in the country within a certain period of time.

Up to 48,471 people from 131 nations took part in the MM2H scheme from 2002 to September 2019.
