I have a friend who lives in Egypt. He is 34 years old and working as a Quality Control / Production Engineer in a factory that makes and installs equipment in CNG Gas stations in Egypt.
As you know Egypt is a difficult place since the revolution to oust the former President and life is hard. My friend also faces the added pressure of his family forcing him into an arranged marriage which he does not want.
He is keen to leave Egypt and make a new independent life elsewhere. Unfortunately it is too difficult right now for him to try to emigrate to Australia as visas are very hard to get, very expensive, and the process very time consuming.
I am wondering if Malaysia might be a place he could go. I took him there for a 2 week holiday last December and he liked the country. I am thinking that as it is a Muslim country, he would not have so much difficulty adapting.
Can any of our Malaysian members assist me with this?
Does anyone know what the work visa rules are for Malaysia?
Does anyone know of a factory that might have a job for my friend? It could be any sort of factory that needs a Quality Control Engineer type person.
Any assistance to help him find living quarters and get settled would also be good.
I would also try to come to Malaysia for a short time if possible, to assist my friend getting settled, and work through the process to help if necessary.
Any help anyone can give me on this subject will be much appreciated.
Good morning to our Malaysian members.
Just moving this back up as no-one has commented on this request.
Does anyone have any information they can help me with??
I am open to all suggestions with this matter.
From Australia, Melbourne
