Congratulations on your MM2H approval, Ibkitco.
How long did it take for the final approval to be given after you submitted the medical cert, insurance cert & FD certificates? Was it within a week or much longer. ( I think Penny indicated a month in an earlier post).

You can either get your agent to handle this matter or muddle through the whole process yourself.
I collected my conditional MM2H approval from the Tourism ministry today, together with a pamphlet describing the procedure for buying a tax-free car (or, alternatively, importing a tax-free car from your country of origin). It appears fairly straight forward but things in this country often have a habit of tripping up the unsuspecting expat.
That pamphlet is freely available in the lobby of the Tourism Ministry at the Putra World Trade Centre, 23rd Floor. If you like, I could email you a scanned copy of that pamphlet. Better still, can someone explain (in simple language) how I can make this scanned copy freely available to all fellow forummers?
I will probably try to get the tax-free car myself, once I have receive the final stamp of approval. BTW, a slight disappointment is the conditional approval is for 5 years only, contrary to the 10-years mentioned in the official website.
There is also a specific medical report form which need to be completed & submitted before final approval is granted. This is also available at the Tourism Ministry office.
