KUALA LUMPUR (June 14): New regulations for the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme have received the Cabinet's approval, with the details to be announced soon, said Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing. (pictured)

"It is already approved. If possible, we would announce it today (Friday),” the minister told reporters at the Tourism Malaysia Overseas Office Marketing Action Plan Enhancement Session programme here.

Tiong said that with the new regulations, the companies or agents providing the MM2H programme should give the best service to uphold the country's good name.

The MM2H programme was introduced in 2002, allowing foreigners to buy property and live in Malaysia for an extended period. It was temporarily frozen in August 2020 to allow the Home Ministry and the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture to comprehensively review and reassess the programme.

Since October 2021, the Immigration Department has handled all new MM2H applications, comprising matters related to processing existing applications and logistics.

Meanwhile, Tiong said his ministry would hold meetings with the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Transport, together with tour bus operators in July to find the best solution to problems faced by the operators.

He said the meeting would, among others, also be a preparation for the Visit Malaysia Year 2026 programme.
