MALAYSIA – Workers Sponsoring Dependents Must Meet Income Requirements

Effective immediately, Employment Pass holders must have a monthly income equal to or greater than 5,000 Malaysian Ringgits (about $1,400 USD) per month in order to sponsor spouses or children on Dependent Passes. Dependent Pass holders who are currently in Malaysia where the sponsor’s salary falls below the 5,000 Malaysian Ringgits minimum may stay in Malaysia until their current passes expire. However, please note that unless the Employment Pass holder’s salary increases above the minimum, renewal requests for Dependent Passes will be denied.
