EuroCham / MDBC: One Stop Centre for Business Travellers

March 18, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Dear MDBC members,

An effort to balance public health, livelihoods and economic sustainability, a One Stop Centre (OSC) has been set up by the Malaysian Government effective 2 October 2020 to ease the movement of business travellers by expediting the approval of their entry to do business in Malaysia.

The One Stop Centre is represented by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI), Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA), Ministry of Health (MOH), and the Immigration Department of Malaysia (IMI) to ensure the legitimacy and health status of business travellers before they enter into Malaysia.

This Centre assumes a critical role in ensuring that Malaysia remains steady on the path of economic recovery, and growth by enabling business travellers’ movement to do their business or work in Malaysia.  Join us to learn more about the OSC and how it can help your business.

Date:  Thursday, 18 March
Time: 10:00 – 11:00 hrs
Platform: Zoom
