In a recent development, Malaysia has been added to the growing list of countries where Indians can travel visa free. From 1st December 2023, Indian and Chinese nationals visiting Malaysia for tourism purposes can enter without a Malaysia visa. The Malaysian Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim announced this policy change in a meeting in Putrajaya. The PM also mentioned the waiver was in addition to existing visa exemptions enjoyed by some ASEAN countries, some Gulf countries and some Western countries. Despite the exemption, Indian nationals will have to go through top security screening. “Initial screenings will be conducted for all tourists and visitors to Malaysia. Security is a different matter. If there are criminal records or the risk of terrorism, they will not be allowed to enter. That comes under the authority of the security forces and immigration,” says the Prime Minister. 

Visitors will enjoy a 30-day visa free entry. However, the extent of this Malaysia visa for Indians is yet unknown.
