What is your Experience Like Getting a Credit Card in Malaysia?

For an expat in Malaysia, getting a credit card seems to be a complicated issue for some.  We’ve heard from some expats who say that their credit card applications were rejected while some said they had to jump through hoops before finally acquiring one. Some banks say the approval for credit cards for expats are on a case-by-case basis.

What are your experiences trying to get a credit card in Malaysia? Did you have any issues or was it as simple as getting one in your home country?
