If you are planning a trip to Malaysia, you may have heard about something called an ENTRI. It is a document that grants entry in Malaysia to everyone that holds it. However, an ENTRI is not meant for everyone, and you need to meet a series of requirements to be able to apply for one. Below, you will find all the conditions.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Do I need a visa to visit Malaysia?
It depends on your nationality. Unfortunately, only Indian and Chinese citizens qualify for an ENTRI. Hong Kong SAR citizens and Macao SAR citizens are also excluded.

For that purpose, you can use iVisa’s Visa Checker. Access the feature, which can be located on iVisa’s homepage, select your nationality in the box on the left, and put Malaysia in the box on the right. If you qualify for any type of electronic visa, we can help you apply.
