Apply for Malaysia Tourist Visa Online

Updated on: 17th January 2019

Disclaimer: This guide is for Indian passport holders travelling to Malaysia as tourists. The information mentioned is up to date at the time of writing the post. I will try to keep it updated. Please refer the official website for specific queries.

eNTRI was discontinued for 10 days from January 1st to January 10th, 2019; but has been reinstated for Indian tourists. It is now available till 31st December 2019.

Note that there are some websites like http://windowsmalaysia.com/ which claim to offer their services for Visa. However, they are not official government websites and I recommend you avoid them.

2 types of visa being given to Indian tourists:

Malaysian electronic visa: Details of Malaysia eVisa:

  1. If you plan to stay for more than 15 days but less than 30 days, you will need to apply for a electronic Visa.
  2. This is a multiple entry visa (MEV) which is valid from 3 months of from the date of issuance.
  3. The fee for electronic Visa is USD 25 + Rs.1050.
  4. You can apply 2 weeks in advance from the date of travel. However, if your travel dates change and fall within the 3 months, you need not apply again.
  5. You will need to re-apply if your travel date is extended beyond 3 months.
  6. It takes 24 hours to process the visa; excluding weekends and public holidays.

Visa Waiver program/ eNTRI: Details of the Malaysia Visa waiver program for Indians:

  1. Visa waiver program is to facilitate the entry of Indian tourists into Malaysia. Electronic Travel Registration & Information (eNTRI) is the online registration facility created under this Visa Waiver program.
  2. As of now, this provision is available only from 11th January 2019 to 31st Dec 2019.
  3. If you are a tourist from India and plan to visit Malaysia for less than 15 days, you can apply for eNTRI.
  4. The visa fee for eNTRI is waived. Applicants need to pay USD 20 per form as processing fee.
  5. eNTRI is a single entry visa (SEV) valid for 3 months from the time of issuance.
  6. You need to apply atleast 2 days in advance from the date of travel. However, if your travel dates change and fall within the 3 months, you need not apply again.
  7. You need to have a return ticket to India, Singapore, Thailand or Brunei.

Edited 20th May 2017: Adding comments of a few users who applied for eNTRI/ eVISA with their experiences. It may not be possible for everyone to go through individual comments.

Comment by Raghav:

Dear All, Last week was the first time i visited Malaysia through Singapore from India. My Travel itenary : BOM-SIN-JHB-KUL-SIN-BOM Malaysia was my last minute plan to add in the travel. Have reached out to lot of people/agents/embassy to apply Visa for Malaysia. Everyone was aware of the Printed Visa and eVisa only – Printed Visa is charged around INE 6500 per person and takes minimum 4-5 working days. eVisa is INR 3500 per person and takes 24-48 working hours. Let me narrate the story before i go to the advantages and disadvantages of the various visas for malaysia including eNTRI. I had spoken to consulate people both in Mumbai and Chennai – they are not sure of eNTRI and asked us to apply for eVisas as am entering from Singapore on Road. The officer has told dont apply eNTRI as no one is sure and go for eVisa. We have applied eVisa for all 3 of us – me, my spouse and kid -> After 22 hrs in working day – my kid’s eVisa got approved and ours 2 got rejected. We were worried as the travel date was just 48 hrs and we need to know why it got rejected as the documents for us and kid are same. We tried reaching out to Mumbai consulate – they said that you need to reach out the online chat customer care from the website. We have reached to the chat customer care and they have said the reasons could be any but the consulate only knows the reason. The below is the chat transcript instructions. Here are some possible reasons your application was rejected: 1) Given/Middle name and Surname must be filled in exactly as per passport. If there is no surname, kindly leave it blank. (Note: Spaces in between names are taken into account as well); 2) New Passport number and also Old Passport number (if any, it’s stated in Last Page of your CURRENT passport. If none, kindly fill in the new passport number); 3) Photo of passport did not meet the standard requirements (i.e: Must either be in the form of e-Photo taken from studio OR scanned from the Original in color, clear with white background and HAS to be cropped & rotated in the upright orientation); 4) Passport Pages did not meet the standard requirements (i.e: Must be scanned from the Original in color, clear, and HAS to be cropped & rotated in the upright orientation) ; 5) A Valid Full Return ticket also known as Roundtrip Ticket from and to your Origin Country MUST be uploaded. Note that all air tickets have to be in color, genuine & not photoshopped or edited in any way. (i.e: India – Malaysia – India); 6) Hotel booking(s) & air ticket(s) must be valid/not passed the actual travel date; 7) Proof of address (i.e: AADHAAR Card, Society Letter, etc.) to be the same address as current resident address in their Country of Origin, if requested; 8) Latest Visited Country – Entry and Exit Stamp (i.e: Page must be scanned from the Original in color, clear, and HAS to be cropped & rotated in the upright orientation); and/or 9) Documents such as hotel bookings, identification card, birth certificates & any other documents requested must be clear, in color, and has to be cropped accordingly & rotated in the upright orientation; and/or9) Ensure all particulars in the form are keyed in correctly (i.e: date of issuance/expiry, passport number, date of birth, etc.) You may re-apply again a fresh application and when you re-apply, kindly bear these in mind. If all documents uploaded correctly and particulars filled in as per instructions and is deemed satisfactory by Immigration Officer, it won’t take more than 24 working hours for Immigration to process your application. We have reached to Mumbai consulate officer post this – and they had requested to write an email to mumbai@imi.gov.my and we have got a similar reply : Dear sir, We do not divulge our reason for rejection. Issuance of visa is under the discretion of the High Commission. You may reapply again should you wish to. However, kindly heed these guides; 1. Ensure all information is keyed in correctly as per details on passport 2. Ensure all uploaded documents (passport pages, proper full air tickets, hotel booking) are original 3. Ensure hotel booking are uploaded; hotel booking must be complete for whole duration of visit in Malaysia (ie; visiting for 5 days, booking must be for complete 5 days) 4. Ensure photos and all documents follow stated specification 5. It will be very helpful to attach a covering letter stating tourist plan and people accompanying on the trip We shall consider your application thoroughly. We got worried as all the documents already provided considers all these mentioned above but still couldn’t find the reason for rejection. So, we dared to proceed with our travel by taking an eNTRI instead of applying eVisa again due to the time limitations. eNTRI is instant and we have received as soon as we made the processing fee charges. We entered through the Second link from Singapore(Tuas checkpoint) and Sultan Abu bakar checkpoint(Malaysia) through a Taxi. The immigration officer verified all the documents and provided the entry permission in 15 minutes. While going to Singapore, i had checked with the Indian immigration officer as well – he was kind and helpful to go through these documents and has suggested that eNTRI is also a very valid entry document and he couldn’t spot much of difference of eNTRI and eVISA except the section/clause that you are allowed. If you are entering from India directly or through the mentioned countries – think if you have all the documents mentioned handy and if you have enough money/credit card/itenary and valid return ticket with all the stay/accommodation details – there is no reason for denial of entry unless any discrepancies. Am furnishing the entire story here so that it will be useful to thousands of users who are planning to visit Malaysia through the new Visa regulations. Thanks, Raghav

Comment by Kalyan (he is an Indian passport holder working in Srilanka on a resident visa. He wanted to visit Malaysia with his Srilankan office colleagues):

Writing this as it may help for anyone with similar situation. Yes I got clarity. If we’re travelling from Sri Lanka, we cannot apply eNTRI. I applied for an eVisa. If you’re travelling from Sri Lanka then the online application should be applied from Sri Lanka itself as the country drop down during registration populates based on the country you’re applying from. And we must specify the current local address as the address we’re staying in the country applying from(that’s what I got to know from online support). I had this country problem as I was an employee in Sri Lanka and was on a vacation in India, where I tried applying for this. So I had my friend in Sri Lanka do all the process for me. Now I’m back in Sri Lanka and we’re travelling on 10th May. And also, additional mandatory documentation is needed for an Indian applying from Sri Lanka. Along with return flight ticket, passport and accomodation, we need employment confirmation letter from the place we’re working, a visa request letter and 4 months bank statement. After applying, I have also been asked for Residence Visa copy of Sri Lanka in my passport and then the visa got approved. It took 3 working days in total.

Hope the post helps tourists travelling to Malaysia. Leave a comment if you have any queries. Or if you have applied and would like to share your experience with other travellers!

  2. Hi Priyanka,

    I am an Indian citizen residing in India, I have to visit Malaysia twice in a span of 20days, once in March and again in April. I will be entering from Hong Kong in March and entering from India directly in April.

    So, I am confused about the which visa to apply for? Please help.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Ashwin

    1. Hi Ashwin,

      As long as your first entry and last exit date are within 30 days of each other, you can apply for eVISA which is a multiple entry visa. However, this may change if this is not for tourism purposes. Please call one of the consulates (contact details in the blog) and confirm based on your purpose of travel.

      Thanks,
      Priyanka

  3. Hi Priyanka,

    Thanks for the reply,

    But as you can see i am travelling from UAE – thailand – Malaysia – Singapore – thailand then returning back to UAE.

    Moreover under the FAQ section they have clearly mentioned

    https://www.windowmalaysia.my/evisa/FAQ/PDF/FAQ/Support/FAQ_eNTRi_Indian_en.pdf

    Example:

    The eligible travel routes/flights are as follows:
    *Country of stay/work -> Any country (Transit/Stay) -> Malaysia -> Any country
    (Transit/Stay) -> Country of Origin or any other country.
    Please refer to the below examples:
    Depart Transit/Stay Arrival Transit/Stay Final Destination Remarks
    Australia N/A Malaysia N/A Australia ✔
    Australia Bali Malaysia N/A Bali ✔
    Australia N/A Malaysia Bali India ✔
    Australia Bali Malaysia Singapore Australia ✔
    Australia Malaysia Singapore Malaysia India

    Kindly advise.

    Regards,

    1. Hi Pradeep,

      Page no.9 of the same document states “Applicants residing outside India (Expatriate) must have a flight to Malaysia and return flight ticket from Malaysia to India or applied country.” If I were you, I would not take any chance with visa. Immigration authorities have every right to deny entry to their country without any justification.

      Regards,
      Priyanka

  4. Hi priyanka,

    Hi Pradeep Kumar,
    Thanks for getting in touch with us.
    for your information, a housewife is not able to apply for eNTRI expatriate. kindly apply for eVISA only
    If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

    Best Regards,

    But when i asked a lady at embassy here , she said this is OK.

    I don’t think occupation – houswife really matters for getting enTRI note. no where it was mentioned either.
    both are having residence visa of UAE.

    Kindly, guide me what to do.

    Thanks in advance

    1. Hi Pradeep,

      NRIs can apply for eNTRI only if they hold valid work permit and resident visa for the country you are applying from. Also,there is a condition that states:

      • Applicants residing outside India (Expatriate) must have a flight to Malaysia and return flight ticket from Malaysia to India or applied country.

      Since UAE is where you are applying from, you need to have flight to and from Malaysia either to India or UAE. You can see this condition mentioned in this document:

      https://www.windowmalaysia.my/evisa/FAQ/PDF/FAQ/About/eNTRI/eNTRI_Indian_Nationals_en.pdf?ver=1.2

      I suggest you apply for eVISA.
      Regards,
      Priyanka

  5. Hi priyanka,
    I am travelling to malaysia from india.
    I am having a fresh passport and this will be the first time i will be applying for visa.i am having 2 visa credit cards with me. Can you tell me do i still need to upload my bank account statement along with visa application and if yes then how much balance should be their in my account for visa to be approved?

    Also as i will be travelling to different places and stying in different hotels in malaysia so do i need to upload all the hotels booking invoice in my visa documents?

    1. Hi Anshul,
      You do not need any bank statement to get eNTRI / eVISA. However, since this is your first international travel,do keep last 3 months bank statement with you when you travel. Immigration officers don’t usually ask for it; but sometimes they do for first time travellers.Also, you can upload your first hotel booking in your visa form and carry hard copy of rest of the reservations when travelling.
      Hope you have checked the other blog posts that have tips for first time travellers.
      Have a good trip 🙂

  6. Hi Priyanka,
    I am traveling to Thailand on 28th Feb from Bangalore and I am transiting through Kuala Lumpur (Same PNR). The layover is 14 hours and wanted to enter the city of KL.
    Can I use the eNTRI for this ?
    My itinerary:
    Bangalore > KL(Transit) >Phuket> Bangkok> Bangalore

    Thanks
    Akankhya

      1. Hi,
        I did upload the cover letter but while filling up the form it is asking me to mention the address in Malaysia. What do I mention there?
        Its with a * so cant skip

  7. Hi Priyanka,

    Thanks for detailed information.
    I have a question regarding return country.
    Though I am entering Malaysia directly from India but my return iternary is –

    Malaysia- Bali- Singapore- India

    Will I be eligible for entri visa?

    1. Hi Rahul,

      You will not be eligible for eNTRI because you are not exiting via Singapore, Brunei or Thailand. You will have to apply for eVISA.

      Hope it helps!
      Priyanka

  8. Hi Priyanka,
    we are travelling to philippines and during our return journey, planning to stay for a day in Kuala Lumpur. We are confused about which visa to apply for. Can you help us out.

    1. Hi Venkatesh,

      Since you are entering KUL from Philippines, you will need to take an eVISA.

      Have a good trip 🙂

  9. Hello
    Thanks Priyanka for this comprehensive information. I will be traveling to Singapore from Jaipur next month. On the return leg from Singapore,we have a stopover of 11 hours in Kuala Lumpur. I want to utilize these hours by doing some basic Kuala-lumpur sightseeing.
    My question is,I want to apply for eNTRI as this will be a single entry visit to Malaysia and less fee as well.
    1. What about accommodation booking? As I will be there for hardly 7-8 hours,(that too at broad daylight) a hotel is not needed,what to upload in the form then? And how to convince the authorities at the Kuala-lumpur airport?I can upload a fully refundable booking.com booking but then what if the authorities at Kuala-lumpur ask for the same? I would have cancelled it by then.

    2. Should I upload the flight ticket for the return leg only or both the legs?.

    1. Hi Ajay,

      You can upload a covering letter stating you do not need an accommodation. A sample covering letter would be like this:
      Covering Letter for Malaysian Visa.

      If you are more than one person from the same family, you can change the names accordingly.

      You can upload flight ticket for the return leg that specifies you are entering via Singapore and exiting to India.

      Hope this helps!
      Priyanka
