MM2H Fixed Deposit Withdrawal
One aspect of moving back home that I was worried about was the withdrawal of my MM2H Fixed deposit. When I sold my house I went to the Ministry of Tourism's MM2H website to see what I had to do. It all seemed so simple, except for having to travel to Kuala Lumpur twice. I contacted Alter Domus and was informed that they would do this for me. The cost of doing this was much less than traveling to KL, staying in a hotel overnight and returning. Also I would be wasting much needed time.
I simply sent a copy of my passport, visa, my MM2H fixed deposit certificates and my airline ticket to Nita at Alter Domus and then handed over my passport before they went to KL and they did the rest. I picked up my authorization letter, took it to the bank and waited. Today I checked my US account and saw that everything was successfully transferred. The whole process took only 2 weeks. What a pleasant surprise! Thanks Alter Domus and Nita.
Still waiting for the Sinking Fund deposit. I am not holding my breath on that one. I have a feeling I can chalk that up for a loss. The condo is all cleared out and just waiting for the big day. If anyone is interested in renting this unit please message me. The unit has a great view of Gurney Drive and is fully furnished with a new American style stove with a big oven and it has great neighbors!
