Why Should I Apply?

With the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP), Malaysia recognizes the need for top foreign talents and experts to work more than the usual two or three-year stint in the country. If you're an expatriate working in Malaysia and looking for a flexible long-term option to work and live in the country, then the Residence Pass-Talent is the solution for you.
