    Be aware that the website you quote from is NOT a government website, but belongs to an agency which could handle your application. What is described is indeed the situation as to how it was. There is nothing known of how it will be in the future.
    The government website for MM2H is: HOME

    This, if true, is great info. My MM2H visa is also due to expire in few months and am not getting any useful information from Malaysian consulate here in HK or the MM2H office in KL. My MM2H deposit (150K) remains in designated deposit with HSBC, if the information above is correct then my deposit in the scheme would hopefully help with renewal of MM2H visa.

    Excerpt from MM2h.com's June newsletter..

    REMINDERS
    While there is no problem renewing MM2H visas or transferring MM2H visas to new passports if you are in Malaysia, it cannot be done if you are outside the country.

    This means that several hundred people whose visas expired when they were outside Malaysia, even when it was because they were refused entry, have to wait until the borders are open before being allowed back in to renew them.

    The official word is that people will have three months after the borders open to enter and renew their visas. We will send out a special e-newsletter when we have any important or urgent information.


    If you want to visit immigration you must book an appointment. The address is http://sto.imi.gov.my/. As an agency we usually have appointments available sooner.

    Medical Insurance - Malaysia

    Would appreciate suggestions on Medical insurance provider and type of coverage for Malaysia. I currently have my medical cover in HK with AIA, they cover Malaysia too. But unlike HK, private healthcare in Malaysia is quite affordable, i.e. insurance is not necessary for outpatient and routine matters. Would it adequate to just buy insurance for specialists & hospitalization & critical illness?.

    Yes. As you say: visits to clinics etc are not expensive and you can pay those out of pocket. Be aware though that you will need travel insurance in case you travel to other countries. Medical costs (especially if it is an emergency while on a trip) is usually very expensive. The Malaysian medical cost insurance does not cover those expenses outside Malaysia.

    But that is the same almost everywhere. Normal medical insurance covers usually just local medical costs (with some limited coverage abroad)
    If you travel you should always buy travel insurance no matter where you live.
