Issue ICs to MM2H residents Print

I AM a British citizen attracted by the “Malaysia My Second Home” programme. I have been granted residential status and here I am in Malaysia.

However, I am facing a problem of great inconvenience and concern.

I understand that I am required to carry some form of identification at all times and that I would be issued with an identity card under the MM2H programme.

But the Government department running the programme tells me that it has ceased issuing identity cards. Neither could it give me any letter of authorisation to enable another government department to issue me with an ID.

I have discovered many circumstances – for example, in dealing with banks or utility companies – when I am required to show some identification and even entry into certain complexes requires the surrender of the ID.

The net result is that I have to carry my bulky passport at all times. Should the passport be lost or stolen, the repercussions would be very serious.

Could the Government resolve this matter for the benefit of people like myself who have come here for a quiet and peaceful life without anxiety?

It must impact the future of the entire MM2H programme if successful applicants are left in limbo.

D WONG, Kuala Lumpur.
