InvestMalaysia System Down Due to Power Disruption


Content Type:

Duration:

KUALA LUMPUR, 23 APRIL 2021 – The National Council of Digital Economy and Fourth Industrial Revolution (MED4IR) chaired by Prime Minister YAB Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin endorsed the establishment of the Digital Investment Office (DIO), entrusted to charge towards facilitating digital investments in Malaysia. The role of DIO is consistent with the MyDIGITAL Blueprint and the National Investment Aspirations, guided by the essence of the Shared Prosperity Vision (SPV) 2030.

The DIO is a fully-digital collaborative platform between the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) and Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) to coordinate and facilitate all digital investments. The objective of this endeavor is not only to create awareness on digital investments in the country but to also strengthen the coordination among all Investment Promotion Agencies (IPAs) in promoting and attracting new investments in this fast-evolution segment.

Senior Minister and Minister of International Trade and Industry (MITI), Dato’ Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali remarked, “The Digital Economy is the engine of future growth for Malaysia. The setting up of this DIO is indeed timely in line with the evolution of the investment landscape in the region towards digitalisation and Industry 4.0, as it will create a unique value proposition for the upcoming digital investments. We are optimistic that with this structured governance in investment promotion and facilitation, Malaysia’s digital ecosystem will be further strengthened and primed for the future, ensuring the country remains competitive on the path of recovery post-COVID.”

Mr. Arham Abdul Rahman, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of MIDA reiterated both the Agencies’ commitment to facilitate quality investments into the country, including digital investments, “This DIO builds upon Malaysia’s aspiration to position as a Digital
Hub in the region. As the principal investment promotion and development agency of the country under MITI, MIDA looks forward to work closely with MDEC to accelerate the growth of digital investments, which will indirectly develop more highly skilled local professionals and groom digital global champions. In the long run, this will enhance Malaysia’s competitive advantage, offering undeniable pull factors for investors, both foreign and local alike.”

“The DIO is a game changer as it will be the single point of contact for investors in our digital economy. It is a significant milestone for the investment facilitation, combining MIDA’s global infrastructure and MDEC’s subject matter expertise in the digital economy ecosystem to attract high quality digital investments to benefit our businesses and people, in line with our agenda of Malaysia 5.0,” said Ms. Surina Shukri, CEO of MDEC.

This collaborative effort between MIDA and MDEC will cater to the rapidly growing digital industries’ needs with a view to anchor global technology leaders, build local champions, and nurture future ready talent in Malaysia. In the long term, with the shift in the global digital landscape, the Government anticipates the DIO to play a vital role to position Malaysia as the preferred Digital Hub and firmly establish Malaysia as the Heart of Digital ASEAN in the Southeast Asian Economic Region.

Guide on Application for Entry Permission

In efforts to balance public health, livelihoods and economic sustainability, a One Stop Centre (OSC) has been set up by the Malaysian Government effective 2nd October 2020 to ease the movement of business travellers by expediting the approval of their entry to do business in Malaysia.

The One Stop Centre is represented by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI), Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA), Ministry of Health (MOH) and the Immigration Department of Malaysia (IMI) to ensure the legitimacy and health status of business travellers before they enter into Malaysia.

This Centre assumes a critical role in ensuring that Malaysia remains steady on the path of economic recovery and growth by enabling business travellers’ movement to do their business or work in Malaysia.

The establishment of OSC for Business Travellers consists of the following components:

  1. OSC Committee to evaluate and consider applications for Business Travellers entry;
  2. Business Travellers Centre (BTC) to facilitate the incoming business traveller’s entry to Malaysia at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA);  and
  3. A dedicated website containing information and advisory services to facilitate the entry of Business Travellers.

The OSC Committee evaluates and approves two types of applications, namely Long Term Business Travellers and Short Term Business Travellers. The committee meets daily and decisions are made within three working days for each applicant upon receiving complete information.

Long Term Business Travellers

Long Term Business Travellers are business travellers that stay in the country for more than 14 days and holding valid passes. The applicants will need to adhere to the necessary requirements and submit their Entry Permission application online via MyEntry or MyTravelPass systems.

The Long Term Business Travellers who are required to submit the application via MYEntry system at https://myentry.myxpats.com.my are as follows:

  1. New/Existing expatriates stranded abroad, namely active pass holders of the EP and Resident Pass-Talent (RP-T)
  2. New/Existing foreign technical experts stranded abroad with Professional Visit Pass (PVP) to serve multiple customers across Malaysia
  3. Frequent foreign business travellers (Exit & Return) including RE/RO/PH representatives

Meanwhile, the Long Term Business Travellers who are required to apply via MyTravelPass system at https://mtp.imi.gov.my/myTravelPass/main are as follows:

  1. Permanent Resident (PR) Pass Holders
  2. Malaysia My 2nd Home (MM2H) Social Visit Pass Holders
  3. Frequent Malaysian business travellers (Exit & Return)
  4. Social Visit Pass Holders

Short Term Business Travellers

Short Term Business Travellers are business travellers that stay in the country for 14 days or less. These Business Travellers are required to obtain a support letter manually from the OSC secretariat for quarantine exemption prior to the submission of application for entry permission via MyTravelPass at https://mtp.imi.gov.my/myTravelPass/main under the category of Foreigner (Social Pass). This mechanism is a temporary measure while the upgrading of the MYEntry System for online application by Short Term Business Travellers is completed.

The category of Short Term Business Travellers comprises of:

  1. Potential investors seeking to do business in Malaysia
  2. Existing investors namely business owners, board members, executives and associates of companies in Malaysia (without Employment Pass)
  3. Business customers for product qualification and validation before commercial production
  4. Technical experts for ad-hoc emergency cases to serve single or multiple customers across Malaysia

The request for support letter by Short Term Business Travellers can be emailed to [email protected] by providing the following information:

  1. Invitation letter (from Ministry/Government Agency/Company registered in Malaysia)
  2. Detailed Itinerary
  3. Copy of Passport ID Page (Coloured)

Both Long Term and Short Term Business Travellers must obtain relevant visas (if applicable) from the respective Malaysian Embassy or High Commission or Consulate General Offices abroad prior to their departure to Malaysia.

Business Travellers Centre

Malaysian Investment Development Authority in collaboration with the Ministry of Health is finalising the construction of Business Travellers Centre at KLIA which will provide the services of Liaison Officers as well as the COVID-19 test for Short Term Business Travellers. A dedicated website containing information and advisory services to facilitate the application for the entry of all business travellers into Malaysia is also in progress.

An announcement will be issued soon upon the completion of the upgrading of MyEntry system and the construction of Business Travellers Centre at KLIA for Short Term Business Travellers.
