A new fuel-price rule introduced in Malaysia may damage the country’s reputation as an expat friendly country, it has been claimed.
According to one expat writing for Sun2Surf, the new rules will effectively mean that expats will pay a higher price for fuel than Malaysian nationals, and will pay the same rate as non-resident foreigners, despite paying income taxes and offering other contributions to the economy.
"Higher petrol prices will add to the cost of living. This will reduce the savings for expats who will have to ask their Malaysian employers to increase their salaries," wrote the anonymous expat, adding that this may ultimately influence a worker’s decision to move to the country or not.
As well as researching various living costs thoroughly before making a final decision to move overseas, potential expats may also wish to take out an international medical insurance policy to ensure they have full access to cover while overseas.
