Malaysia is working to simplify the process for Malaysian companies hiring expatriate workers by launching an electronic system. The Xpats Gateway is part of the Malaysia’s ongoing commitment to digitize government functions and position itself as a business-friendly nation.
One feature of the Xpats Gateway is the ability for employers to apply for a support letter to facilitate the hiring of expatriate workers.
