Advantages of Labuan Company Work Permit

In recent years,

the Malaysian government has made it easier for foreigners to form companies and do business in Malaysia. This created many opportunities for businesses to tap into the rapid economic growth in the Asia Region using Malaysia as the hub. Forming a Labuan International Company is the best option because of its many benefits, namely, foreigners can have 100% ownership of their business, a low corporate tax of only 3% for trading activities and zero tax for investment holding companies. On top of these advantages, you are permitted to deal with local Malaysians and set up your Marketing Office anywhere in Malaysia.

The main advantage of a Labuan business set up is that you are able to register your Labuan company quickly and apply for a 2 years’ work permit for yourself, your family, and any qualified candidate you intend to employ to manage your business in Labuan. The application may begin while you are abroad, in your home country. Once your application is successful and approved by the Labuan Authority, usually within 90 days, all applicants must fly into Malaysia for 3-5 working days to complete the landing formalities – such as visa stamping and opening of a banking account.

Among the many advantages of a Labuan company work permit, the most important benefit is that it is a multiple entry visa. This is very convenient for work permit holders who travel in and out of Malaysia. The following nationalities are required to have a valid visa approved by the Malaysia Embassy/Consulate for their every visit to Malaysia. With a Labuan visa, you can travel in and out of Malaysia with ease!

Under the Malaysia immigration rules and regulations, all entry checkpoints have the right to deny entry to any tourist/visitor. Therefore, having a Labuan company work permit which is a valid visa for 2 years, will help to avoid such inconveniences.

Bank Account Opening For Your Labuan Company

From time to time, the bankers’ policies may change with the requirement of the foreigners as bank signatories to have a valid visa under his own company, to open your Labuan company bank account.
