I'm an expat on a work permit in Malaysia. This is the second company I joined, few months back. Previously I worked for another company which provided me a three-year work permit. With the new company, although my position is permanent, the company refused to apply for a work permit longer than a year, saying it's the company policy.
One of the banks that I need to open account with, is CitiBank. However, the bank strictly requires at least 1 year visa. By the time I receive my passport, it is less than a year. Last time I visited the bank I had 7 months left in my Visa in addition to employment contract stating I'm a permanent employee. Unfortunately, it did not help.
My question, is there any other way to open a bank account with CitiBank Malaysia with less than a year visa?
