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

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

My wife was issued a P licence which lasts 2 years. After that there is a window I think another year but don't quote me where you exchange the P for a full. If you fail to do so in that time it all...

Re: Peninsular MM2H reactivated from October, new conditions

Was it not Belgium that managed without politicians ruining things for 12 months+, basically the civil service ran the country successfully without the oversight.

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

Pretty much what we were told with my abortive try albeit Mrs B was successful. We'd waited for the hard copies, although JPJ did say they would take the old counterpart even though these have not...

Re: MM2H Tax Filing

HMRC gave me a form which I had to ask the local tax people to sign. They were fine doing so which suggests it is a known procedure. I have had the banks here ask if I am registered locally, my...

Re: MM2H Tax Filing

They have my email address. I tend to delete mails once I've actioned them so I cannot be sure if I got an email to that effect or the officer told me when I registered. They do give you a number to...

Re: MM2H Tax Filing

Once you have a tax number you get a request to file. I've not looked into whether as in the UK there's a penalty for failing to do so as the task is not onerous.

Re: MM2Hers stuck outside

My understanding is at least for peninsular Malaysia they're banning based on passport. i.e. If you hold a passport from a country on the verboten list then irrespective of how long has passed since...

Re: Taking a loan as MM2Her

I am here as LTSVP, we've looked into a loan before but with no income in Malaysia would have had to rely on our foreign income and that is not considered unless it is from Singapore. Went all...

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

Re: MM2Hers stuck outside

Got to agree most are good here, some don't wear correctly mind the mask isn't much use tucked under the chin or with the nose poking out. As an observation the worst I think is Tesco both customers...

Re: MM2Hers stuck outside

Can't disagree, if I had been considering MM2H it would be crossed off now as a non starter

Re: status of tourists during MCO

I did see this raised elsewhere. My understanding is that while the MCO is in force you're okay, you have 14 days from its end to renew your visa or to leave the country. If you want to get back to...

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

How much of a PITA was it to take the motorcycle test here? I wonder if I can get the car licence swapped[1] If I can retake the bike test here.

Re: Carrying your passport everywhere

Unfortunately not, there was a foreigner ID at one time. It would certainly make my life and I suspect many others so much easier were Malaysia to issue too long term residents.
