Hi djb111,

To relocate to Malaysia you would need to secure a job offer before moving there. There are restrictions on how many foreign employees are allowed in each Malaysian company, and the company would need to prove to the government that there is no Malaysian national who would be able to adequately fill the position in question. If this is achieved, the rest of the process usually goes smoothly but it can be difficult to find an employer willing to tackle all the red tape that comes with hiring a foreign employee.

Have a look at our Work Permits for Malaysia and Working in Malaysia pages for more information.

Best of luck.
