    Malaysia tourist visa

    Since March 2016, Malaysia has been offering the Malaysia Electronic Visa for Indian nationals. Indians may now go to Malaysia much more easily thanks to this. Nevertheless, visitors who want to remain in Malaysia for fewer than 30 days are the only ones eligible for the tourist visa.

    The Malaysia Sticker Visa, also known as the Stamp Visa, must be obtained from the Malaysian Embassy for visitors who want to stay in Malaysia for six months or longer. The Malaysia Sticker Visa application process is significantly more involved than it is for the Malaysia eVisa.
