In case you are planning a trip to Malaysia, one of the first things you need to check is the type of document that allows you to cross its borders. Some people need to visit the nearest Malaysian diplomatic mission to apply for a visa, while others are eligible for an electronic visa. However, Indian and Chinese citizens who want to travel to Malaysia for 15 days or less qualify for a Malaysia ENTRI. The document can be purchased online and iVisa can help with the application process. If you qualify for an ENTRI, all you have to do is follow a few steps.

Fill me in

Step one: gather all the required documentation

Meeting the requirements for a Malaysia immigration ENTRI note should not impose difficulties for you. The list is not very long, and you may already have what you need. When you apply, you need to have the following:

  • Valid passport – all applicants must hold a valid passport that maintains its validity for at least another 6 months from the date of arrival in Malaysia.

  • Passport-sized photo – it needs to be as recent as possible. Preferably in the last 6 months.

  • E-mail address – iVisa sends you the ENTRI note via e-mail in PDF format. Do not forget to print it out before your departure.

  • Means of payment – you will be asked to make the payment during the online application process. You can use a credit or debit card, but iVisa accepts PayPal, Alipay, and WeChat as well.

At the same time, the list below contains the documentation you need to present at Malaysia’s border checkpoint

  • The ENTRI note

  • Boarding pass

  • Flight tickets to and from Malaysia – the flight can be direct or through Singapore, Thailand, and Brunei only.

  • Proof of accommodation – a hotel confirmation will suffice

  • Means of sustenance – you can present cash, credit cards, bank statements, etc.

  • Complete travel itinerary

Step two: fill in the application form

You cannot receive something if you do not ask for it, right? That is why you need to fill in an application form. But you do not need to worry about that either because iVisa created a short and simple form that usually takes about 20 minutes to complete.

Moreover, if you find something that you do not understand or have questions, iVisa provides excellent customer support. A consultant can take your call 24/7. The service is free of charge.

The form happens in three stages. During the first one, you need to insert your general information such as name, address, date of birth, etc. Details regarding your trip and passport information are also required. This stage requires you to select a processing time as well. The option you choose determines how much your Malaysia ENTRI note costs and how soon you get it. Here is what you can opt for:

  • Standard – the slowest processing time option ensures that your Malaysia ENTRI arrives within 24 hours and costs $56.50.

  • Rush – this time, you will be charged $86.50, but your application is processed within 12 hours.

  • Super Rush – this is the fastest option you can choose. Your application form is processed within just 4 hours, but you will be charged $106.50.

The second stage asks you to make the payment and revise the previous step. It is essential that your form does not contain errors that can invalidate the Malaysia ENTRI note. The third stage is the moment when you must upload the documents that support your application. For instance, you need to upload a scan of your passport’s information page.

Step three: submit your application

Once all three stages of the application form are complete, all that is left for you to do is to submit your application and wait. iVisa takes it from there.

The bottom line is that the application process for a Malaysia immigration ENTRI note is simple when you apply with iVisa. The document is valid for 30 days since issue, you can use it for a single entry, and you can stay in Malaysia for up to 15 days.
