Spotlight on APAC Series: Malaysia

Effective as of 24 April 2024 all Employment Pass applications (EP) and renewal EP applications must be submitted through the Government portal Xpats Gateway.  All companies registered with the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) will be able to use the Xpats Gateway portal using the same login details that they held for the MDEC Expats System.


There has been a transitional period as applications move across to the Xpats Gateway which was officially launched on 15 June 2023 for information & communication Technology companies.


It will be important for companies to ensure they are using the correct portal for submission of applications.
