Bao Fun MM2H

Overview

Bao Fun (MM2H) Sdn. Bhd. is a service arm under the Henry Butcher Malaysia group, and is established to assist foreigners who wish to either retire or invest in Malaysia, under the Malaysia My Second Home programme. A Licensed MM2H Agent by the Ministry of Tourism Malaysia, we work closely with the Ministry by taking part in foreign and local expatriate and tourism exhibitions.

Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) is a programme introduced by the Government of Malaysia to allow citizens of all countries that are recognised by Malaysia - regardless of race, religion, gender and age - to stay in Malaysia for a period of 10 years and is renewable thereafter.

When our clients choose to apply for MM2H status through us, our service starts from the comfort of our clients’ home wherever they are, right up to finding a new home and settling down.

Bao Fun (MM2H) truly believes Malaysia is a beautiful country to work, live and play in, without compromising one’s need to feel more at home; and hence our concerted effort to promote Malaysia as a whole to the world.
