The Malaysia Expatriate Services Centre Sdn. Bhd. (MYXpats) processes and issues all Employment Pass and related documents for expatriates wanting to work in Malaysia.

Once a company is registered and approved by the ESD system, it can submit applications for the Employment Pass and related-passes.

Once the application for an Expatriate Pass has been submitted, MYXpats Centre will evaluate expatriates for their suitability for jobs. The approval process will take five working days, as per the Client Charter of the ESD.

Located in the Klang Valley, the MYXpats Centre brings together multiple resources under one roof, in one location to improve efficiency and the delivery of services to employers and expatriates.

Run by TalentCorp together with the Immigration Department of Malaysia, and overseen by the Ministry of Home Affairs, the MYXpats Centre is the planned enhancement of immigration services outlined by the Prime Minister of Malaysia and started by the launch of the ESD last year.
