MM2H Agent and Sponsor in Malaysia
Alter Domus (MM2H) Sdn. Bhd. Received the first license in 2006 of a MM2H Visa Sponsor from the Malaysian Ministry of Tourism. We are proud to be the first licensee of this program with the license number MM2H/001. Since 2002, we have been helping foreigners with long-term visa, even before the licensing requirements were implemented.
If you refer to an old file, the first file issued by the Ministry of Tourism showing the list of licensed MM2H agents, we are of course at the first position with a comment "International Official Agent".
The location of the said file is still at the official website: http://mm2h.gov.my/pdf/License
In the list of 132 companies that were initially licensed by the Ministry, many of them are not operating now. Since 2004, we are into it and currently more applications are taking place. Many companies have different alternate businesses and MM2H is just one of the many businesses they are operating.
But at Alter Domus, we do nothing but MM2H only. Our services only include MM2H visa application, visa cancellation, renewal, relocation assistance, home management and property search. With handful experience of doing visa application, we are very focused and specialized in what we do. We are not jack-of-all-trades, we have expertise in one thing and we know how to do it well. In spite of our busy schedule, we concentrate towards over-delivering what we are expected to do.
Using the terms such as "MM2H visa agents" or "MM2H agents" is not preferred by us. We love using the term "MM2H sponsors" to define us perfectly. So, Alter Domus is the ideal MM2H sponsor for your retirement in Malaysia under the Malaysia My Second Home or MM2H visa. We are entirely liable as long as you stay here in a "personal bond" for your application.
Till date, we have sponsored thousands of applicants and helped many others who have not applied through Alter Domus. We are now helping them with renewals of the visa, home management or any other services they need. We are also helping out their friends and relatives with the visa.
Our targeted market segment includes "western developed countries" like North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand as these countries account for more than 80% of our business. According to the statistics published by the MM2H Center, we hold a large market share for our targeted market segment. Though we were surprised in the initial stage, later realized that this is due to our client profile.
All of our clients are successful people. A cross section of our clients is listed as follows:
- Financially strong and stable Retirees, retired from successful careers.
- Young internet entrepreneurs (<40 years old) found it cheaper to operate their global business from Malaysia.
- Weekend dads – professionals (non-Singaporeans) found that it is cheaper and much better for their family to be based in Penang. It’s easy for them to become weekend dads, as they can fly back from Singapore for the weekends.
- Professional or high-level management executives who travel around Asia. Why base in Singapore when it is cheaper to do it from Penang? (Their principal is fine as long as they are in Asia)
- Working professionals, usually with a property here – enjoying their holidays here (usually from Hong Kong or Singapore)
- Oil and gas personnel. When you can let your family stay in Penang while you are on the oil rig for 3 weeks at a time, why base in an expensive country like USA, Singapore or Australia?
- Business owners who want to spend a better life and remotely control their business from here.
- Freelancers or mobile consultants who can work via internet or telephone.
For our clients, time is money and they need professional assistance from a reliable MM2H agent for the MM2H Program. They lack the time to take leave from work for completing the documentation, submit the documents and follow up with the MM2H Center on their application. To cut the long story short their vacation days are much more expensive than doing everything for MM2H on their own. They need a MM2H adviser to guide them all the way for a hassle-free MM2H visa. They want quick response to their questions. So the answers must be accurate and easy to understand. We don’t believe in just trying the luck. Everything is done here systematically and precisely as a very high chance of success is expected.
Our clients appreciate "instant local knowledge" and always want to avoid "trial and error", an expensive event with an unforeseen experience. Once you avail our service, our advice is free for life and it can be anything under the sun. Our mobile phones are turned on all the time and if there is any emergency, we will be there to help our clients.
These services always put us forth in the competition as many other sponsors cannot match us. Many of our clients have admitted that our advice and assistance were worth more than they have paid us. This another reason why we have a very large market share for the Western developed market and all our clients eventually become our friends. Have a look at our testimonial page and you will get to know that it is not easy to say too much without being labelled as hard-selling.
Latest update from Ministry of Tourism (MOT). MOT rarely updates of performance of agents. As for August 2016, we are the third largest MM2H sponsor in Malaysia.
The top two sponsors are doing mainly the Chinese, Bangladeshi and other non-English speaking countries. One of them have a website but it is only in Chinese. The other does not even have a website. In reality experience counts and that’s why it’s important to select one with experience in handling the application procedure.
Our company focuses only on Western developed countries like Australia, New Zealand, Europe, North America and Singapore. We are not a real estate agency, developer, tour and travels agency, legal firms or any other types of business. Alter Domus focuses on Malaysia My Second Home only. We never push our clients to buy properties, cars, insurance or any other services except MM2H.
