    Moving to Malaysia 

    The capital city Kuala Lumpur is often the first choice for expats relocating to Malaysia and is home to the instantly recognisable Petronas Twin Towers. Other popular areas for expats include Penang, Melaka, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching.

    There are a number of different documents required by the Malaysian authorities,  some of which may vary depending on if you are an expat relocating to Malaysia or a Malaysian returning home. Our team of international movers will be able to advise you of the specifics depending on what goods you want to import into the country, but in general you will require the following for the import of household goods*.

    • Copy airway bill 
    • OBL(express release preferred)
    • Copy of packing list
    • Passport copy of shipper with Photograph
    • Copy of work permit and /or letter of employment confirming employment in Malaysia
    • Identify Card (IC) front & back for returning Malaysians
    • Copy or work permit or letter of employment from the country for returning Malaysians.
