What does ENTRI means?

Also known as The Electronic Travel Registration & Information (eNTRI) is a visa exemption program for Indian nationals to allow more tourist people to visit Malaysia. When the ENTRI term is mentioned, most people define it as a visa, since it is usually requested in advance and must be presented upon arrival in the country. Don't forget that the ENTRI that we will send to your email, is a registration that you will have to present to the Immigration people once you arrive in Malaysia.

How much time can I utilize the ENTRI to visit Malaysia?

Once you receive the ENTRI, you will have a set time of 90 days to enter the country. The stay allowed with the ENTRI is 15 days with a single entry. This means that you can only enter Malaysia once.

Can you provide me the list of the required documents?

You must need to attach these documents in your online form:

  • Copy of your original passport (Valid for at least 6 months after entry into Malaysia).

  • Passport photograph of the applicant (Taken within the last 6 months).

  • Travel Itinerary showing flight details (confirmed return flight ticket).

  • Proof of accommodation (hotel booking).

  • Birth certificate (for underage children).

IMPORTANT: We always want to remind all our future applicants that to apply for an ENTRI or eVisa for Malaysia, the Government of this country may require additional documents. If that is the case with your application, we will contact you to explain what would be required additionally.
