Expatriates in top management positions allowed to enter Malaysia – Ismail Sabri


THE government is now allowing expatriates holding top management positions in Malaysia to enter Malaysia, without having to seek the permission of the Malaysian Immigration Department (JIM), Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob (picture) said.

He said the expatriates would have to undergo COVID-19 screening in their home country before leaving for Malaysia or the screening could be conducted on their arrival here.

“These expatriates belong to the EP1, Professional Visit Pass and Resident Talent Pass Holder categories, holding key positions such as the managing director post in a Malaysian company,” he said at a daily press conference on the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) here today.
