Employers in Malaysia who are looking to apply for the extension of 'temporary conditional approval' for the employment of foreign workers are to do so by 31 May 2022 (Tuesday), the Malaysia's Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) reminded.

"All applications received after that date will not be accepted and no requests will be entertained," the Ministry said.

Separately, MHA noted that in line with the decision of the Cabinet, services and applications regarding foreign workers will no longer be managed by the Management of Foreign Recruitment (Bahagian Pengurusan Perkeja Asing, or BPPA), and the Ministry of Home Affairs itself, effective 1 June 2022.

  • OSC and KSM

    • Location change;
    • Updating of company name and address;
    • Coordination of company registration numbers, and
    • Updating of employer/employer representative information via the MyIMMs system.
