How to apply for a Malaysia ENTRI visa

Once you make sure that you are indeed eligible for a Malaysia ENTRI visa, all you have to do is fill in an application form. However, we advise all our applicants to put together the necessary documentation before handling the form. That ensures a smoother process. With that being said, here is what you need for the application:

  • 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, when you arrive in Malaysia at the border checkpoint, you need to be able to show proof of the following:

  • 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

Once you have everything you need, you can proceed and fill in the application form. There are no reasons for concern because iVisa created a simple form that should take you about 20 minutes to complete. And if you need some assistance, iVisa’s customer support is at your disposal 24/7 and is free of charge.

There are three steps you need to go through. Step number one asks for your personal information, some details about the trip, and passport information. At this point, you must also select a processing time which establishes just how fast your application is processed and how much you must pay for your Malaysia ENTRI visa. You are given three options:

  • 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.

Moving forward to step number two, you need to make the payment and revise step one. The revision is crucial because a typo that goes unnoticed in your form can invalidate your Malaysia ENTRI visa. Double-check your form before moving on.

The last step covers the supporting documents. For example, you need to upload a copy of your passport’s information page. Should additional documents be required, you will be notified. Once you are done with all three steps, you can hit the submit button. That is where your effort ends.

So, to answer your question, you can get a Malaysia ENTRI visa only through an online visa service. The application process is easy and does not take much if your time. The document you receive is valid for 30 days since issue, and you can use it for a single entry. Your stay in Malaysia cannot exceed 15 days.

Important note: there has to be a cooling period between your Malaysia ENTRI visa applications. If you plan to travel to Malaysia multiple times, you need to know that you can apply for a Malaysia ENTRI visa just once every three months. If that is inconvenient for you, you should try a Malaysia e-visa.
