This is given to foreign people who need a visa to enter Malaysia on their way to another country. Foreign nationals in transit who do not leave the airport and continue their travel to their next destination on the same flight do not need a transit visa.
1. Look for a Malaysian Representative Office
You must first determine whether your nation has a Malaysian Representative Office or a visa application facility, and then locate the one that is closest to you.
2. Get the application form here
Before submitting a Malaysia visa application, you must first obtain the Malaysia Visa application form from the Immigration Department of Malaysia’s website and complete it online. You must print and sign two copies.
3. Complete the documents
When applying for Malaysia visa services, you must provide numerous supporting papers, including:
|➤ Duplicate Malaysia visa application form
|➤ A copy of your flight itinerary, as well as a confirmed return ticket
|➤ Proof of lodging in Malaysia
|➤ Include an invitation letter if you are staying with friends or relatives
|➤ Bank statements over the last three months
4. Allow time for processing
You may be able to follow the status of your application online, depending on your nation and the area where you are applying. If you apply online (eVisa), the process should not take more than 100 hours, or four days.
Your visa should be completed within 48 to 72 hours if you apply through eNTRI.
If you apply by hand, the processing time is determined by the office that receives your application. Nonetheless, the Malaysia visa is usually processed within 7-8 working days.
After arriving in Malaysia, you must meet the following conditions to enter:
|➤ You must have a valid passport
|➤ If you are from a visa-required nation, you must have a visa
|➤ You must provide proof of adequate finances
|➤ You must have a return ticket or an onward ticket
|➤ At the Malaysian entrance point, you must fill out the Arrival/Departure Card
|➤ If you are going for a lengthy period of time (for job, study, or to visit a family member), you must have the appropriate Pass (Employment Pass, Student Pass, etc.) acquired from Malaysia's Immigration Department
|➤ If relevant, you must provide proof of sponsorship
A permanent resident is someone who has been granted the indefinite right to dwell in Malaysia. The individual is a foreign national who has been granted the status of permanent resident in Malaysia. This implies no more Visa renewals and fewer restrictions as a temporary resident. Being a permanent resident in Malaysia entitles you to the same benefits as a Malaysian citizen, but you do not hold Malaysian citizenship.
Instead, you retain your citizenship from your native nation. The most important thing to remember is that, unlike citizens, permanent residents are expressly barred from participating in any political action. This includes, among other things, the inability to vote in elections.
