According to Malaysia’s latest guidelines in 2020, the gates for foreigners to purchase real estate in Malaysia generally must be RM 1 million and above apartments and RM 3 million and above for land properties. 

However, individual state governments can set up their own gates according to the circumstances of individual states. In Penang, for example, the gate fence for a multi-storey apartment for foreigners is 800,000 MYR, and the gate fence for landed house is 1.8 million MYR.
