Hong Kong businessman Craig Tong decided to migrate to Malaysia under its initiative to attract wealthy foreigners – known as Malaysia My Second Home or MM2H – last September, enticed by the education system and business opportunities.

The 37-year-old submitted his application to Malaysia’s Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, which manages the scheme, in December. In February, after Hong Kong shut schools due to the Covid-19 outbreak, Tong pulled his four-year-old son out of kindergarten and made plans to transfer him to an international school in Puchong, about 21km from Kuala Lumpur. He also rented a 1,300 sq ft apartment nearby, paid a year’s worth of rent in advance and prepared to move this year with his son, wife and elderly mother.

He expected his application would be approved between July and October.

But, months later, Tong is still in Hong Kong, one of an estimated thousands of foreign nationals to have been affected by Malaysia’s sudden decision last month to suspend the MM2H programme. The government offered no explanation for its decision, other than saying it would suspend the processing of new visa applications and renewals of existing visas to “comprehensively review and re-evaluate the MM2H programme”. It said it would resume the programme next year.

Tong has since lost almost HK$66,000 in application and rental fees, as his apartment lease began last month. He felt like he was in limbo, unable to decide what to do next and worried that his son had no school to go to for the next few months.

“My son is staying at home doing nothing,” said Tong. “Should I get my son back to a Hong Kong school first, and when MM2H restarts then I stop school again? I don’t know what I should do.”

Tong’s experience is just one example of confusion and crises that foreigners on the MM2H visa have experienced since the Covid-19 pandemic prompted Malaysia to shut its borders in March.

Expats stuck in countries from Britain to India to Indonesia because of border closures and restrictions have shared their stories of being unable to return to their primary place of residence. The situation has not been helped by new entry restrictions that took effect on September 7, when the Malaysian government, fearing a rise in Covid-19 cases after getting the situation under control, placed entry restrictions on 23 countries with more than 150,000 cases – including Indonesia, the Philippines and the United States. The restrictions include MM2H visa holders.

Among them are Hongkongers looking to migrate due to concerns over Beijing’s tightening grip on the city. Violent protests last year led to the introduction of a controversial national security law this year, handing sweeping powers to the authorities and threatening press freedom and judicial independence, critics have said.

Jessie Ong, director of Penang-based Overseas Living (MM2H), said she had seen at least a 50 to 60 per cent rise in the number of Hongkongers asking about the migration programme in her travel agency since the protests erupted in July 2019.

“After the protests, we are always getting phone calls from Hongkongers and they are able to decide quickly if the MM2H programme suits them. I can tell they are panicky about the situation, especially those who have kids,” she said.

Ong said an additional 30 to 40 per cent of her clients had proceeded with their MM2H applications since the protests began.

Ken Lee, a 49-year-old engineer living in Hong Kong, has serious thoughts of applying for the MM2H pass, citing retirement perks and letting his daughter, six, study in a relatively stress-free environment. Although he has not officially applied, he has been joining MM2H Facebook groups and watching YouTube videos to learn more.

“I tried to ask many consultants and found out that agents can’t even accept my application at this point,” he said.

“I was planning to travel to Malaysia during the summer holidays or Christmas to check out the environment, now I have to push it back to Chinese New Year or Easter. Now I can only research and get information based on what I see online.”

The MM2H programme was started in 2002 and was originally heavily promoted by the Malaysia Tourism Authority and the Immigration Department. The scheme offers foreigners multiple-entry resident visas that must be renewed every 10 years. They can buy property valued at 1 million ringgit (US$239,234) or more, and own vehicles but need a separate employment pass if they want to be actively involved in the day-to-day running of a business.

Between 2002 and 2018, 43,943 applications from 131 countries or territories were approved, of which 1,087 came from Hong Kong, ranking the city ninth in a list of the top 10. The scheme is most popular with people from mainland China and Japan.

But according to Malaysian My Second Home Consultants Association (MM2HCA), rejections spiked last September. Between September and November 2019, about nine in 10 MM2H applicants were rejected without explanation, according to the association. Before that, the rejection rate was around one in 10, it said.
