Moving to Malaysia from Singapore


Moving overseas is both an exciting opportunity but also one full of caution. The change that your family will experience can be difficult. When considering a corporate relocation that involves children, you might also consider removalists that have a broad range of services, particularly those that have a well prepared children’s program. This just might overcome some of the natural concerns they may feel.

Malaysia is an ideal destination for expats considering moving to Asia. Traditionally a country reliant on resource exports, Malaysia is beginning to expand its economy in areas such as science, tourism, commerce and medical tourism, resulting in an increase in expat employment opportunities.

Malaysia is located in Southeast Asia, Malaysia is home to a population of over 28 million, according to World Bank data. The country’s capital city is Kuala Lumpur and Malaysian’s federal government is located in Putrajaya.
