Many thanks, RedApe, for all your efforts to shape SMM2H into a better programme. It's a great shame that your recommendations were ignored.

Re: MM2Hers stuck outside

My interpretation of the various policy statements issued by the Govt. is that Malaysians returning to the country will be granted accommodation with a notional value of up to RM150 per night. If...

Re: Suspension Of Conversion of Foreign Driving Licence to Malaysia Driving Lice

I did challenge the lady at the front desk at JPJ Putrajaya on this matter. She went inside the office and brought out her superior who confirmed that only car licenses can be exchanged/converted. Go...

Re: Suspension Of Conversion of Foreign Driving Licence to Malaysia Driving Lice

In post #98 I gave a direct quote from the UK Govt website which would indicate yes, they do become invalid. Another official website states that it is compulsory for the license holder to update...

As stated before, if you are no longer a permanent resident of your home country, your license may be deemed invalid. I guess you could argue the case with the insurance company, but I'm not willing...

Re: Suspension Of Conversion of Foreign Driving Licence to Malaysia Driving Lice

I still have the paper counterpart and they accepted that, so I didn't order a D737. YMMV. I think someone else waited a couple of weeks for airmail.

Re: Suspension Of Conversion of Foreign Driving Licence to Malaysia Driving Lice

Two years. PDL - it's the same license that a driver who has just passed their test gets. It's irrelevant that you've been driving for 40 years all over Europe. Malaysia's driving conditions are...

Re: Suspension Of Conversion of Foreign Driving Licence to Malaysia Driving Lice

I think it would be prudent to phone the DVLA and check whether or not the issue of a D737 by them automatically invalidates your UK license. If you do so, please report back.

Re: Suspension Of Conversion of Foreign Driving Licence to Malaysia Driving Lice

No, if they mistakenly try to do that you should resist. I believe the license is ultimately the property of the UK Govt. JPJ want to see the original to compare it with the copies you should take...

Re: Suspension Of Conversion of Foreign Driving Licence to Malaysia Driving Lice

I understand the JPJ sentence I quoted as referring to the Malaysian domestic license. You can hold one of those, or an IDP issued by JPJ, but not both. That goes against many countries' advice that...

There's potentially a big drawback to this. Your new/exchanged Malaysian license will be Probationary (P), regardless of your previous driving experience. You are not allowed to obtain an IDP in...

Seeking tax advisor

Can anyone recommend an expert advisor in KL (not LHDN themselves) who might clarify a couple of the grey areas concerning expats and personal taxes in Malaysia?
