Is it just me or foreigners have no opportunites whatsoever here ?

what is the situation now in hiring foreigners  in healthcare sphere? as i heard due to some crises in Asian region the government closed the flow of immigrants and suspended the issuance of visas. Is it really?

What crisis?

Some foreign worker service jobs in hospital sector but that's about all.

Plenty of local candidates for healthcare jobs and move to get local graduates employed, so immigration does not approve applications for foreigners unless they have special skills not available here.

Cost of the employment pass is only 318 RM according to ESD's Website:

I will move to KL the next week, I am a telecommunication engineer, I speak 3 languages (english, french and spanish), and I have 2 years of experience.
I'am really optimist and I think I can find a job in my 3 firts months ( tourist visa).
Do you still thinking it's that hard to find a job there?
And, do you have some contacts in IT companies or telecommunications business?
Thanks in advance!

The situation has deteriorated further because of ASEAN collaboration which is bringing in more professional labour from those countries as part of the agreements. The other issue is that there are  direct government to government hiring systems in place cornering the market. This route is popular because many speak languages used locally plus English. Lastly, because of solving unemployment among Malaysian youth, employers are opening up jobs to fresh grads and training. Unless you have any specialist skills not available locally immigration are not approving employment passes.

Perhaps this is one of the reasons: (40 foreign companies have moved out of Malaysia in the past 4 years) … st-4-years
