MORE than half of Malaysia My 2nd Home (MM2H) applicants are considering moving to other Southeast Asian countries as they cannot meet the new requirements for approval, a recent survey showed.

Held by the programme’s consultant association (MM2HCA), the survey of 925 foreign respondents, including from Europe and the United States, showed that 98% of the MM2H participants did not meet the new conditions for the long-stay programme, leaving them with no choice but to consider Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia and Singapore as alternatives.
