Forming a Labuan International Company is the best option because of its many benefits, namely, foreigners can have 100% ownership of their business, enjoy low corporate tax of only 3% (when substance requirements are met) for specific trading activities and investment holding companies. On top of these advantages, Labuan companies are permitted now allowed to deal with local Malaysians and in both foreign and Ringgit Malaysia currencies! Marketing Offices can be set up anywhere in Malaysia with approval.

The main advantage of a Labuan business set up is that the registration of a Labuan company is generally fast and quick, after which, you can apply for the 2 years’ work permit for yourself, your family as dependents, and any qualified candidate you intend to employ to manage your business in Labuan. The application may begin while you are abroad or 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 company bank account.

Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Angola, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, The Central African Republic, Congo Republic, Cote D ‘ Ivoire, Djibouti, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guinea-issau, Liberia, Mali, Mozambique, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Western Sahara, Afghanistan, Bhutan, Colombia, Myanmar, Nepal, China, and Taiwan.

This requirement also applies to all holders of Certificate Of Identity, all holders Of Laisser Passer and all Holders Of Titre De Voyage.

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 as it facilitates smooth entry and exit into Malaysia as often as you travel.
