Malaysia offers VOA for Indian travellers


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 AttacheĢ), 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/travellers 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.
