Abstract : In the modern days of advancement, people prefer to migrate from one country to another for change in lifestyle and better prospects in social, cultural, economic and environmental standards. The Malaysian Government is promoting Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) program to attract more foreigners to settle down in Malaysia in order to boost the macro economy and tourism industry. The present article investigates the intention of Japanese and Indonesians towards choosing Malaysia as a second home. The findings of the study reveal that economic environment, social environment, political status, and retirement life were among the significant factors on the intention to consider getting a second home ownership. Surprisingly, the factors of attraction, safety and security were not found to be significant. It is understandable that only international tourists might consider destination attractiveness to be an important factor, but not second home seekers. Furthermore, Malaysia is a safer country to live.
