For those wanting to get into Malaysia and are from Ethiopia, you will need to consider a visa to stay in Malaysia.
Only certain country citizens are allowed to apply for an e-Visa online. So if you’re from Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Montenegro, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Serbia or Sri Lanka, then you can apply for an e-Visa.
Ethiopia to Malaysia by Flights
Residents of Ethiopia can only fly into Malaysia by air only. You are not allowed to enter Malaysia any other way. The best option for those flying in from Ethiopia is to take advantage of their free public transit pass. It is good for up to 120 hours from your arrival in Malaysia. That is up to 5 days of travel!
So, if you fly in from Ethiopia into Malaysia or are just passing through, you want to fly into Kuala Lumpur International Airport since that is the only airport that will give you this free 120-hour transit pass for free. Another restriction is that you must be flying with Air Asia or Malaysia Airlines. Any other airline or arrival airport, and you will have to purchase these options.
Also, be sure you know you need a Yellow Fever Vaccination certificate ready to show immigration officials. A lot of travelers from Africa are now required by the government of Malaysia to have proof you have had the Yellow Fever vaccination, also known as the International Certificate of Vaccination. Without this, you may not be allowed to enter the country and your e-Visa may not work.
To Malaysia if Not from Ethiopia
As of now, Indian and Chinese citizens can access the eNTRI pass for Malaysia. This eNTRI pass will give visitors up to 15 days to visit and tour Malaysia, so it is better than the free transit pass.
