We actually visited MM2H office at the Ministry of Home Affairs (KDN). As we were told, they only pass approvals to be signed by the Minister and then send them back to MOTAC. So, the process is the following, as we were told,-
- MOTAC approves your application at their Committee. (This took 8 months for us.)
- It goes then to the Police Department to verify your police report.
- It goes then back to MOTAC
- It goes then to KDN to be signed by the Minister
- It goes then to MOTAC

There is no centralized tracking system for your papers. As soon as it leaves MOTAC, it looks like no one knows where your papers got stuck. Inefficiency by design?

Inefficiency by politics. The KDN-step got included after the change in government in 2018. I guess the document tracking system was not set up such that it can track this.
