What is the change? The Malaysian Expatriate Services Division (ESD) has announced new application features and fees for expatriate employment permits and professional visit passes. The changes will go into effect June 1.
*However, immigration charges will apply. The method of payment for the immigration charges has yet to be announced by ESD. Companies are informed to wait for the announcement.
Additional information: Effective June 1, the MYXpats Centre will refund 60% of the application fee for rejected applications, excluding the immigration service fee, which will not be refunded.
Analysis & Comments: Companies should factor the fee increases into their budgets and, if possible, consider filing affected applications before the rate hikes take effect. More information on the changes can be found here.
