You May Now Explore Malaysia Visa–Free in 2022!

As per the new passport order published in the Federal Government Magazine of Malaysia on 26th December 2019, Malaysia is going to provide visa-free travel to Indian passport holders throughout the year 2020. However, the free visa would be valid for a period of 15 days from the date of entering the country and cannot be extended. The decision comes after Sri Lanka recently announced to extend its free visa–on–arrival policy for Indian tourists. This facility has also been offered to tourists travelling on a Chinese passport.

What Is The Procedure?

To be applicable for visa-free travel in Malaysia, Indian tourists need to register themselves on the Electronic Travel Registration and Information (eNTRI) System. The registration may be done either by the tourists themselves or through any travel agency registered with the Malaysian Mission Office in India.

Once a person is registered via 'eNTRI System', tourists may travel to Malaysia within three months from the date of issue of visa, post which the visa will be applicable only for 15 days. The tourists must also have a direct travel air ticket to India or any other country. In case people wish to re-enter Malaysia, they may do so after 45 days from the date of leaving the country.

Reason Behind the New Amendment

Ministry of External Affairs considers visa–on–arrival option to be an improvement for Indian passport holders. The decision also comes in because of increased arrivals from India and China over the past few months, leading to a boost in Malaysia’s tourism.
