S-MM2H Programme Overview

Sarawak is the biggest state in Malaysia, which is located on Borneo Island. The north part of Borneo Island is also called East Malaysia. Sarawak has a total land area of 124,449.5km2 and population of 2.82 million.

Sarawak is a self-government state in Malaysia. Sarawak controls its border even against Malaysian nationality.

You will need to take a flight to travel from peninsular Malaysia to Sarawak.

You can fly to Sarawak using the following air routes:

  • - From Kuala Lumpur : 1 hour 45 minutes by domestic flight
  • - From Singapore : 1 hour 30 minutes by international flight

The capital city, Kuching, is the largest city in Sarawak and is known is the “City of Cats” and the city satisfies its name in every sense by fully embracing cat culture.

The S-MM2H is a Sawarak self-government supported programme that allows foreigners who fulfill certain criteria to stay in Sarawak with a multiple-entry social visit pass. It is different from the popular MM2H programme introduced by the central government of Malaysia.

However, when the central government of Malaysia freezed the MM2H programme in July 2020, the S-MM2H programme attract attention because new application are still accepted in Sarawak.

Both S-MM2H and MM2H visa is the same long term visit pass to realize your long stay in Malaysia. But there are slightly difference in the application process and terms and conditions.
