Information on second home

I have an unusual request for information from any one who can help me.
I am presently a Malaysian passport holder, living in the UK with my husband (married in Malaysia 2008) I have indefinite leave to remain. If I obtain British citizenship, I would have to surrender my Malaysian passport as there  is no dual nationality agreement between the two countries.

I would assume then I would have to enter the country as a British national on a 3 month tourist visa.

However I was born in Malaysia and I own a property in Kuala Lumpur which I have had since 2000.

Would I qualify and  be able to enter the 2nd home program and use my property as the capital investment?

My aim is for my husband and I  to be able to stay in Malaysia for months at a time without needing tourist visas. Any advice would be appreciated . Thanks Julie.

" FAQ - mm2h official portal" and go to the official site which has gov.my in its URL.
From their FAQ:

"- Can the purchase of a house in Malaysia which is valued at more than RM500,000.00 be considered as having fulfilled the financial criteria for this programme?
- No. Participants are required to fulfill the fixed deposit requirement or monthly off-shore income for those aged 50 years and above."

You would need to apply as a British citizen and satisfy their requirements (Liquid assets,  Monthly income, Fixed deposit; authenticated marriage certificate, police certificate). You can file your application on-line and then mail all documents and forms.

However, KL suspended the approvals at this time for unknown period of time.

..... authenticated marriage certificate .......

Does one need to get his/her marriage certificate legalised by the Malaysia embassy/consulate if the couple get married overseas (when they apply for the MM2H programme)?

Your marriage certificate needs to be authenticated in a country where you are married. In some countries, this document is called Apostille. You would need to find out how it is done in your country.
Other documents, like documents proving your monthly income, or bank statements need to be original.

Hi thanks for your comments. I pretty much guessed this.

Its frustrating as I full fill all the criteria excepting the financial one. My current Malaysian home is valued above the 500000 RM threshold and is owned outright. Just didn't want to have to sell it to convert into money.  Thanks for your time. JM
