How do we obtain the correct forms to fill in etc?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Holly and welcome to the forum.

I don't think anything has changed since Bluenose's first post so if you visit the portal he mentioned you'll find the online application forms there.

Please post back with anything new you find out.

Hi there, thanks so much for replying so quickly. We found there are offices in Malaka and KL but we are staying in JB, are you aware of any offices here?

Hi, I'm Malaysian and married abroad. We plan to re-register our marriage in Malaysia and applied for LTSVP. My spouse is foreigner and he is holding Visitor-Pass (Temporary Employment) pass. May I know whether we can proceed our marriage registration here if he is holding temporary employment pass? Does NRD (National Registration Dept) is checking the visa or as long as he have valid passport is ok to proceed ? Thanks.

Cant give a definite answer as it can depend on the person dealing with your case.
My experience was it was very simple to register a marriage in another country at the Malaysian High Comm.
So if you can do the registration in another country before living here it should be no problem at all.
Just be prepared to pay RM100 fine for every year you have been married and not done a Malaysian Registration.
Sorry no experience of try to register here in Malaysia.

Default Re: Long Term Social Visit Pass (LTSVP or LTVP)

I am really struggling to work out if this visa if the best option for us? We can't afford the MM2H.

My husband will be working partly in Singapore and partly all around SE Asia. We will be given work visas and dependent visas for SG.

We have contacted a school who have space for us in JB and were lovely (and who have space) but I forgot to mention or ask about visas for the kids. I am presuming this is not an issue.

I am reading lots of conflicting advice about whether I can work in Malaysia on a LTSP - do I need to apply to work?

Your husband is Malaysian? In which case, MM2H would not apply anyway.

Oh yes. And more. Some people saying they got a 6 month pass and couldn't work, others saying they got 5 yrs and could work. There seems to be no reasoning behind the yrs or decisions.

Hi, I'm not sure if I should post here, but wanted to ask:

Is the refund of the deposit paid for the LTSVP still only granted after 2 years/PR?

My wife and I have been in Malaysia for a year and a half and she has the LTSVP plus the employment pass (I'm a Malaysian). We are moving back to UK next month and are not planning on living in Malaysia again. So we wanted to know how to get the deposit back.

I was told to just go and hand in the original receipt when we want our money back, but just wanted to confirm before heading to immigration office.

My sister also originally helped with the LTSVP as a sponsor as well. Does she need to be present?

Any help would be useful!

Thanks.

Hi bang and welcome to the forum.

My understanding is that the deposit is refundable if your wife returns to the UK. Whether the refund is made on presentation of the original receipt I don't know - perhaps it would be best to call them. I would also urge you check if she would be entitled to another LTSVP at some future date if your plans change.

Default Re: Long Term Social Visit Pass (LTSVP or LTVP)

Hi, I've been scouring the web for answers but found none, so I hope someone here might be able to shed some light!

I'm Malaysian, my husband is British. We've lived in Malaysia for a short while before moving to Ireland for work. So we're familiar with the LTSVP. But now we are now planning to move back, and this time with 2 young children. They are not Malaysian citizens and we do not plan to apply for it. Does anybody know what the procedure is, and more importantly - how much will it cost? Is there a security bond (like with an adult LTSVP) or fees? The immig website does list the documents you need but nothing else.

Thanks 😊
