Italy ETIAS for Malaysian citizens
iVisa
3 min read
Updated on May 14, 2024

Malaysian explorers, take note: Italy is calling, but soon there will be a new entry must-have – the Italy ETIAS. The much-anticipated Italy ETIAS is about to become a vital part of your travel preparations to Italy. For Malaysian citizens, this means an additional step before you can soak in the Italian sun. Our goal is to lift the weight of this new requirement off your shoulders.

Imagine yourself sipping a cappuccino in a quaint Roman cafe or taking in the breathtaking views of the Amalfi Coast - that's where your focus should be. Let us take care of the ETIAS details, so your Italian dream trip is all about enjoyment and less about paperwork.

Do Malaysian citizens need an Italy ETIAS?

For Malaysians used to traveling to Italy without a visa, there's an important update coming. By mid-2025, an Italy ETIAS will be necessary for Malaysians planning short visits to the country, including trips for leisure, business, or even transit.

The ETIAS, or European Travel Information and Authorization System, was made known to the public back in 2016. Its introduction aims to increase safety within the Schengen Area. Until this change, Malaysian passport holders, like many from visa-free countries, could enter these European nations simply with their passports. The ETIAS adds a layer of security checks, contributing to a safer travel environment for all.

Remember, the ETIAS is not a visa. It's a travel authorization system, just like the US ESTA and the Canada eTA, which balance security needs with the convenience of travel.

A standout feature of the ETIAS is its inclusivity. Owning an ETIAS authorization means Malaysian citizens can enter not just Italy but all countries within the ETIAS network. This is a major plus for those planning to explore various European destinations, as it simplifies travel documentation. Essentially, the ETIAS is your passport to diverse European cultures and experiences.

For a quick look at the countries accessible with the Italy ETIAS, here's a handy map:
