In March 2016, the government of Malaysia introduced the e-Visa program for travelers wishing to enter Malaysia. Travelers simply fill out an online application that enables certain foreign nationals to apply for an electronic visa to enter Malaysia. Applicants will receive their visas via email, after filling the application form with the necessary information and once the online credit card payment is completed.
The Malaysian e-Visa is available to nationals of China, India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Myanmar, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Serbia,Pakistan and Montenegro. All visa applications are reviewed by the Government of Malaysia.
