Malaysia eNTRI meaning

iVisa | Updated on Sep 30, 2022

Traveling to Malaysia does not require a visa for many nationalities, but some need to apply for some kind of travel document that allows them to enter the country. There are travelers who need to apply for a visa or for an electronic visa, yet Indian and Chinese nationals are qualified for an ENTRI.

ENTRI means Electronic Travel Registration and Information, and as mentioned above, only Indian and Chinese citizens can apply for it. Keep in mind that Hong Kong SAR citizens, as well as Macao SAR citizens, do not qualify for an ENTRI.
