Those returning will have to undergo a medical screening at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, followed by 14 days’ quarantine at the quarantine station. They must also bear the accommodation cost at the quarantine station, she said.
This will be welcome news to the 200 or so MM2H holders currently stuck outside Malaysia since March 18th.
Juen Keong, Partner at MyFirst MM2H (movetomalaysia) said she is please the government has finally allowed MM2H holders back in. "We are very happy our honorary Malaysians are finally allowed to come back home. We at Myfirst MM2H have been lobbying to allow our MM2H visa holder to be allowed to return home for 2 months. This incident has definitely put a dent in the credibility of the MM2H program and I hope the government fixes this wrong."
