Following the recent introduction of advertising requirements for expatriate positions via the national employment portal MYFutureJobs which has come into effect 1 January 2021, the Malaysian government has carved out exemptions for certain expatriate positions.
Automatic exemptions, without the need to go through any additional process with the Social Security Organization (SOCSO) before applying to the approving agency and Immigration, will be given for a few types of posts. Conditional exemptions, upon application, can also be granted for specialized skills, such as language-related skills.
The latest FAQ dated 29 December 2020 covering these exemptions overrides the previous guidelines issued on 1 July 2020.
We are now organizing a second exclusive briefing session with PERKESO to cover the guidelines for registration on the MYfutureJobs portal, qualifying automatic exemptions, as well as to go through the process involved to advertise and apply for conditional exemptions.
This will be highly relevant for members currently employing expats as well as those intending to hire new expats in the near future.
