Malaysia is one of the few Asian countries where you can own property in your name.
And its robust economy (annual GDP growth of 5%), western development and lifestyle, as well as inexpensive living (less than $500 a month for a three-bedroom rental apartment in Penang state), makes the country an attractive option in the region.
For qualified applicants, the country offers the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) 10-year visa. The visa doesn’t lead to citizenship, but passports are hard to come by in Asia. So, don’t expect the usual residency to citizenship path you’d get in Latin America, for example.
In this month’s case study, Sovereign Man friend Christopher shared his family’s Malaysia experience.
Christopher is a South African who’s retired from the oil industry. After he spent 20 years in southeast Asia, he and his wife decided Malaysia’s Penang state was right for their family.
We’ll discuss why Christopher’s family chose Malaysia and their experience with the MM2H visa process. Their two sons attend an international school in Penang state, so we’ll discuss education options for children as well.
We’ll also cover taxes, safety, entrepreneurial opportunities and lots more that makes Malaysia a great destination for both entrepreneurs and retirees.
Read on to discover what life is like for Christopher and his family in Malaysia’s Penang state.
