Thanks so much Ashneys for your inputs. Once we reach the discussion on salary component , I would reach you guys with exact numbers to figure out how worthy it is to take a move.... And is there any restriction in Malaysia, that Dependant Visa's cannot work like in US? or is the process simpler there to get work permit? Another thought, not sure on how it works but someone suggested me to take up this way - Continuing job in India and apply through job portals for posts in Malaysia and once get some job offer, travel to Malaysia.. Does this sound practical?
