On 3 October 2022, the Malaysian immigration authorities introduced a new feature for eligible holders of Social Visit Passes, which allows them to travel to Malaysia for up to 30 days to undertake critical/emergency work in certain industries. Applications for this new feature (i.e., PLS@XPATS) are processed within three working days of submission.
