Foreign spouses and the children of citizens who do not have a long-term visit pass can apply for permission to enter the country, immigration director-general Khairul Dzaimee Daud said yesterday.
However, he said in a statement that only applicants from countries allowed to enter Malaysia would be considered.
“For countries that are subject to entry restrictions, applications will not be considered until there is a decision to lift the entry restrictions for these countries,” he said.
Spouses seeking to enter the country must be legally married with their marriages registered with the National Registration Department or state Islamic religious department, or the Malaysian embassy or Malaysian high commission abroad.
Applications can be sent through email to [email protected] for evaluation.
Guidelines on the necessary procedures can be found at www.imi.gov.my.
