Moving To


Are you prepared to move to Malaysia, a popular expat destination and wonderful living
place? Aim to be well-prepared before leaving to make the most of your expat experience in
Malaysia! PM Relocations offers abundant guidance on visa rules, security, moving, etc.
When you relocate to Malaysia, you will most certainly be captivated by the country's
overwhelming diversity - from its topography to the blend of cultures and races that call it
home. The beautiful beaches and vibrant cities entice expats to establish long-term roots
and reside in Malaysia.
Although overseas employees in Malaysia are paid less than the worldwide average, the
cheaper cost of living compensates. Consequently, expats have the option to see Malaysia's
fantastic tourist attractions. For some, the lure is in the cityscapes, such as Kuala Lumpur's
world-famous skyline. Others are drawn to the prospect of adventure amid some of the
world's oldest tropical jungles. Malaysia's position also makes it a perfect starting point for
examining the leftovers of Southeast Asia.
Most expats, particularly those from the West, undergo culture shock owing to the country's
stringent Islamic norms. Fortunately, with such a vibrant and cosmopolitan population,
residents typically accommodate visitors from other countries, and you'll get a warm

Park, Aquaria KLCC, Tunku Abdul Rahman Park, Bako National Park, Melaka Historic City,
Cameron Highlands, Langkawi Island, Batu Caves, Mount Kinabalu, Kilim Karst Geoforest

Malaysia has a humid subtropical with hot weather and intense heat. The yearly
temperature averages 27°C (80°F) with minimal seasonal fluctuation. High rain falls during
the two monsoon seasons, lasting from April to October and November to February. Solid
and windy gusts can also be expected during the monsoon season.



Kuala Lumpur is a well-known Asian gastronomical powerhouse. The ethnic mix is
prominently reflected in the food, and the selection is enormous. A diverse range of places
is available, from roadside hawker stalls to fine dining, so entire families can afford to eat
out regularly. Food is fundamental to much of culture and business entertainment. Malay,
Chinese, and Indian influences are prominent.
Interestingly, a Chinese-Malay fusion cuisine called Nyonya exists. It was conceived by the
first Chinese immigrants to Melaka and Penang. Malaysia is unquestionably a foodie



Malaysia, by worldwide measures, is a reasonably Islamic country. Sunni Islam is the
nation's official religion practiced by most Malay people. Other religions, such as
Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Taoism, are freely practiced, tolerated, and
appreciated alongside Islam. Some indigenous groups continue to practice animistic faiths.
Islam accounts for 61% of the population, with Buddhism accounting for 20%, Christianity
contributing 9%, and Hinduism accounting for 6%.



Malaysia's ethnic diversity affects a diverse range of holidays and festivals. It is critical to
note that doing business during Ramadan or the Chinese New Year is strictly prohibited.
With Christmas for the Christian minority and the Indian Festival of Lights (Diwali), a month
goes by without some celebration. Many of these are national public holidays, and other
state-specific holidays commemorate the birthdays of local sultans. Check the Malaysian
calendar and local partners. Otherwise, you may see yourself in the center of a multicolored
carnival rather than a business meeting!
Malaysia's cities are relatively unhurried. However, this might be a rather conservative area
if you go rural. Put on something modest. If you are a Muslim, you may be subject to Sharia
law in your area.



Shipping products to Malaysia is complicated, and you'll have to pay import fees. To make
the procedure easier, most expats use an international removal business. Some companies
provide a shipping allowance to pay the shipping expense in their benefits package.



You can bring home items into Malaysia duty-free if you've owned them for a particular
time. Certain electrical equipment requires specific permission.



Bringing forbidden things into Malaysia might put at risk the start of your vacation and
result in significant consequences, including death. As a result, it's critical to study and
understand what you can't bring to prevent any problems. You should be aware that the
following goods are prohibited:
1. Any material with Quranic verses on it
2. Sharp devices resembling syringes (including pens and pencils)
3. Poisonous compounds
4. Cocoa pods, rambutans, pulasan, longan, and nam nam fruit
5. Any indecent or pornographic content
Malaysia has a rigorous perspective on illegal substances, and drug trafficking drugs such as
morphine, heroin, candu, and marijuana are punished by death if discovered in possession.


Suppose you wish to bring a pet to Malaysia. In that case, it must be micro-chipped and
have up-to-date immunization records and a health certificate from your home country's
veterinarian. Pets from specific countries and those who do not have all of the paperwork
required by immigration and veterinary authorities are subject to a brief quarantine period.
Some canine breeds with a propensity for aggression, such as pit bull terriers, are



Unlike neighboring nations, living each month in Malaysia for expats is cheaper than
expected, just like property costs. Malaysians pay relatively modest fees for items such as
food and public transportation. However, luxury things like cigarettes, wine, and cosmetics
are significantly taxed, so it's a good idea to stock up on these duty-free items before you



Before you decide to come to Malaysia, you must arrange an employment contract with a
Malaysian firm that is valid for at least two years. The Malaysian employment market is very
competitive due to many foreign enterprises. However, there are work prospects for
foreigners in Malaysia in tourism, media, and science. It is also good to check whether
multinational firms recruit while seeking employment in Kuala Lumpur or other Malaysian
cities. If you currently work for one in your home country, explore the potential of migrating
to Malaysia through your company.


Malaysia's education system is relatively similar to that of most other nations, and there are
many possibilities for international schools for international students. The most famous
choice for expats with children is the International School of Kuala Lumpur, and Malaysian
institutions provide programs for international students.


Malaysia's healthcare system comprises both public and private sectors, with rising
healthcare costs and quality fueling a surge in medical tourism in recent years. When you
first migrate to Malaysia from the United States, the United Kingdom, or anyplace else, it is
a good idea to make sure you have appropriate health insurance to cover you for any
unexpected medical expenditures.


Many nations, like the United Kingdom, the United States, and Australia, offer visa-free
regimes that enable you to remain in Malaysia for up to 90 days without working or
studying. Foreign nationals from China, India, Serbia, and Montenegro can quickly apply for
an online e-visa. If you want to stay in Malaysia for more than 90 days, you must first apply
for a residency permit, student visa, or work permit. The Malaysian government site has all
of the relevant information. Send vital visa paperwork to and from the Malaysian embassies
as soon as possible to acquire your visa for immigrating to Malaysia!
