Resident Pass approved and released!

The Malaysian Government is definitely doing the right thing in retaining foreign talents. We are one of those who got the recently launched Resident Pass. After a week of preparation, 21- days processing, another 2 weeks for approval and release of pass, we finally have it!!! Our passports were stamped with the new RP pass. One of the surprise was the expiry dates were different for me, hubby and daughter.... Of course we just then realized that the initial pass they released (which is supposed to be a 5-yr pass) will have to follow the expiry dates of passport. So because hubby and daughter have earlier expiries, their passes are shorter than mine. I hope it won't be too problematic in transferring the RP to new passports... But that is a problem I will address 4 years from now.

Meanwhile, we are happy that we received it finally. We love Malaysia and we are happy we can stay for a long time.

  2. Just a quick question. My husband is an engineer, most likely we are moving to Malaysia. I will have just graduated from nurse practitioner school when we move. I have been a registered nurse for 5 years. Will I be able to find any work as a NP or RN? Any advise is greatly appreciated. I have been searching the web forever, and happened across your blog! I'm hoping you can help me!

  3. Hi anonymous , not sure what u mean by RN or NP as I am not from the medical field can u elaborate? All I know is that there are few Filipinos who r nurses and they were able to get a job at Global Doctor. That is a medical group found at Mont kiara area. For sure you will need work permit if u want to work and they might be able to help u get that . I also encountered some Filipino nurses at Glenneagles hospital at Ampang so u may want to check with them as well. Good luck!

  4. A nurse practitioner is a registered nurse that functions similar to a physician, can write prescriptions, diagnose and treat diseases. Are there clinics that the expat's go to when they are sick or need check ups? That would be the type of setting I would be looking for ideally. Thank you for responding! :)

  5. Both Global Doctor and Glenneagles have many expat customers. Though most likely u will be a perfect fit for Global Doctors that is where MANY expats go for small issues, medication or consultation (including myself!)

  7. Dear PinkAddict,

    Congrats again and happy to hear that your Resident Pass has been finally approved.

    I also wish to apply, but I am not sure whether it can be approved..

    Currently I am working as IT Manager for four years in Malaysia and I fulfill almost all the criteria(s) except 1, my income is only 6K a month :'(

    Do you I think I stand a chance to get this RP?

  8. Hi,
    How much did this RPT cost per person? (Immigration fee + agent fee)
    And did you go through an agent?

    1. Didn't go through an agent. We did it ourselves. You can find the cost on their website http://www.talentcorp.com.my/expatriates/residence-pass/

      If I remember correctly we spent about close to RM6000 or more for my family (2 adults and 1 child). Don't know if rates have changed. Best to see their site or contact them directly.

  9. Information I gathered from PinkAddict's RP-T experience is invaluable. I submitted passport's and documents for endorsement by Talent Corp's e-Xpats center. It took 19 working days before my RP-T application got approved. Though I met all of the criteria for the qualification except years of work experience in Malaysia.
