Hi, I am self employed and want to move in Malaysia.

I do not need job because I am self employed (online consultancy).

My qualification is post graduate

can i also bring my family (parents and sibling)?

what kind of visa i may need and how to proceed?

thanks in advance

    Since you are self-employed, you can register a private limited company in Malaysia as a foreigner and get a visa for that. There is a programme called MTEP that makes it easier for tech entrepreneurs to get started in Malaysia. But it also means your company is subjected to tax and other obligation as well.

    Oh this is actually quite hard, since you're not planning to work in Malaysia.

    Malaysia has 4 main categories of migrants:

    Migrants related to Malaysian citizens
    Skilled workers
    Business persons
    Migrants living in Malaysia on humanitarian grounds and refugee

    Try researching which will work out for you.

    I also recommend to look for a job here: https://www.randstad.com.my/ for a while, easiest way to migrate here in Malaysia.
