There are policies implemented in Malaysia to enhance the work life in the country. The Malaysian Employment Act defines the work week as 48 hours, with a maximum of eight hours a day, 6 days a week, and have various work visas for different talent pools.
Another government-backed policy implemented is positive immigration. With this policy, Malaysia has been steadily growing its pool of international talents and citizens who seek a superior, low-tax, high-quality lifestyle destination to live, work, or retire.
The ‘Malaysia My Second Home Program’, is another immigration policy that allows eligible individuals to live in Malaysia on a renewable, multi-entry 10-year visa. Those who are holding this visa can bring immediate family members to live with them, own freehold property, import worldly goods tax-free, and enjoy all the multiple benefits that Malaysia offers to its local and international citizens.
