    My family are Vietnamese passport holders, I am British. I have access to a large house in Malaysia for a relaxed lifestyle, commuting weekly to and from Singapore. No income will be earnt in Malaysia by my wife as I am the breadwinner - with the advantage of a UK passport I can stay for 90 days visa free, however Vietnamese passports get 30 days. Visas are more specific (business / education etc) and this is a social (holiday) visit - so is there a minimum time period to exit Malaysia and then to re-enter (visa-hopping I believe it is called) We could take a long weekend / working week to facilitate break. Any ideas?
    All help greatly appreciated - cheers

    Really doubt if this the right forum to ask this and expect a good reply, as it mainly aims at bekpekkers from the west travelling there-most of tehm are even completely unaware there might be different rules for other nations as theirs. I met a VNese staying extended time in KUL some 2 yrs ago and he had quite some trouble after his initial 30 days as ASEAN expired to get extension. And there is of coruse always the matter that what is printed in some official papers, does not tally up with what actually happens at imigrasi.
    Its most important that the idea is kept that your family does NOT come to work in MY. As you probably also have noted that VNese are extremely good in finding all possible sideways and escapes around annoying inconvenient official rules, I would rather advise you/them to look into specialised expat/ASEAN-info.
    (Most of money made in MY is done illegally by them- which only makes the burden more heavy).
