A Dutch intern is obliged by Malaysian law to have a work permit during his / her internship period. The work permit can only be applied for by the internship company.  A work permit allows the intern to stay in Malaysia legally for a maximum period of 6 months.  In this period, the intern can travel in and around of Malaysia freely. We advise every company to apply for a work permit and can assist you in this process.
