What is the change? The Malaysian Expatriate Services Division has postponed fee increases that were announced earlier this year and were initially set to take effect June 1.

Pending a further announcement, ESD companies will continue paying fees based on the MYXpats Centre’s previous fee structure:

Number Service Current Fee
1 Employment pass 318 ringgit (about US$76.50)
2 Dependent pass/ long-term social visit pass 74.20 ringgit
3 Professional visit pass No charge
4 Transfer of endorsement and cancellation of passes No charge

Analysis & Comments: The Expatriate Services Division had been set to significantly increase fees for the services listed above. Authorities subsequently announced, however, that the previous fees will continue to be charged until further notice.
