Recent Changes by the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC)

In line with MDEC continuous clients’ process improvement, we are pleased to inform that MDEC have embarked on new services and business processes with enhancement of eXpats system to achieve a better process turnaround time and user experience which will ultimately serve you better.

Effective from 15th November 2017, the new changes are as follows:

1) NEW PROCESSES

Based on positive feedback and requests from the clients, MDEC will expand its expatriate services by including the endorsement of application process.

The new processes will include the approval from both MDEC and Immigration Department of Malaysia (IDM) with SLA of seven (7) working days and endorsement of passes by IDM with SLA of two (2) working days. The SLA for company assessment will remain unchanged.

The above SLA can be achieved if MDEC receive the upmost cooperation in STRICTLY fulfilling all Immigration requirements and submitting COMPLETE documentation prior to approval.

In this new process, any incomplete application will be returned to the company for the next course of action. The above SLA will be applied once we received the complete returned documentation.

For all MDEC charges and IDM fees, the payment will only be available via ONLINE MODE. Hence, bank draft / banker’s cheque / cashier order is no longer accepted.
