LONDON: The Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme will be made available to foreign spouses of Malaysians from next Tuesday.

Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen said this was approved in the last Cabinet meeting.

She said her ministry and the Immigration Department would study the terms and conditions for these applicants.

Once approved, they would get a 10-year visa like any other MM2H participants, she said.

“Like other MM2H participants, they will be subjected to all the conditions.

“However, they will not be entitled to the duty- free car as enjoyed by other MM2H participants whereby both are foreigners,” Dr Ng told the media upon arrival at Heathrow Airport yesterday morning for a three-day official visit here.

There are 13,317 MM2H participants from 2002 to last year.

On another matter, Dr Ng said: “A clean and green Malaysia” would be her ministry’s focus this year.

Under the theme “Think Tourism, Act Tourism, 1Malaysia Clean, 1Malaysia Green” she said: “It is all about no littering, clean hawker centres, clean taxis and so on.”

Dr Ng said the Cabinet Committee on Tourism chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin on Monday also decided to set up a task force to promote parks and gardens in Malaysia as a new tourism product.

“This is set to be a major new economic growth as we are going to look at it as a whole component,” she said.

Dr Ng said parks and gardens were a major tourist attraction overseas and they enjoyed many repeat tourists, especially from retirees and nature lovers.
