If you are planning a vacation trip to Malaysia, you may have heard about something called an ENTRI. It is a document that grants visitors entry into Malaysia. 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)
