Good news for all those who have been planning a trip to Malaysia. Reportedly, Malaysia has announced Visa on Arrival (VOA) for Indian travellers arriving in the country through selected entry points, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, or Brunei, with a valid visa from either country. This updated rule will be put into effect from June 1, 2022 .
Elaborating more on this, the Immigration Department of Malaysia (Mumbai Attaché), the VOA fee will be MYR 200 (USD 46), and travellers will be required to show proof that they have at least USD 500 cash/debit card/credit card/traveller’s cheque or any electronic money, which is certified by the Central Bank of Malaysia (Bank Negara Malaysia). Travellers will be able to stay up to 15 days with a confirmed return air ticket.
As reported earlier, Malaysia opened its doors for fully-vaccinated and quarantine-free travel from May 1, 2022. As such, fully-vaccinated inbound travellers are no longer required to undergo pre-departure and on-arrival Covid-19 tests, including children aged 17 years and below.
In case you need to apply for a eVISA, you can now apply for the same online. As per the reports, more than 18000 seats between India and Malaysia through Malaysia Airlines, IndiGo, Malindo Air, AirAsia, and Air India Express are offered weekly.
It’s being speculated that relaxing of COVID related restrictions and VOA will further make travel to the country hassle free for Indians, allowing Malaysia to likely witness growth in tourism activity in the coming days.
