Are you thinking of a trip to Malaysia? A Malaysian Visa will not be necessary for up to 3 months. However, before you travel to Malaysia, you will have to make sure that your passport is up-to-date. Below are your passport guidelines which should be kept in mind before visiting Malaysia, to prevent problems arising during your visit.
Check the validity of the passport – All visitors to Malaysia will require a passport valid at least 90 days after departure. When leaving a country, the ideal amount of validity time on your passport should be around 6 months, so you can travel to neighboring countries without any problems.
Blank visa pages—When you arrive and go out from Malaysia, Malaysia and many other countries require at least two blank visa pages. It allows any stamps necessary to be stamped during your journey on your passport. Upon arrival in Malaysia, immigration officials will stamp your passport book to track how many days you have spent in the country.
Transit visas – Sometimes you require a transit visa when you fly to a country. Countries where your flight makes a stopover may require a transit visa when connecting flights. Before you travel to Malaysia, please check your flight details with your airline.
