Malaysia is a beautiful country that has a lot of tourist spots, in addition, it also offers a great living experience as the taxes and rates of living are quite low as compared to other countries. Therefore many people prefer to move to Malaysia either for a job or business or even for education as the quality of education is quite good in Malaysia.
Malaysia started their e visa program a few years ago. It is not available for the entire world, but more specifically it covers only countries like Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and a few other countries. The e-visa lets you do the entire process at your home with the help of the internet.
Applying for the Malaysian E-Visa
It is very easy to apply for the Malaysia e-visa as long as you are meeting all the requirements and have an active internet connection.
First of all, there are certain documents that you have to complete. Following is a list of those:
- You need to have an active passport and a copy of its first page.
- A recent passport-sized photo is also required to apply for an e-visa.
- An active credit card or debit card or any other account like PayPal through which you can make your payment.
- Your ticket details, especially if you have an e-ticket, this is for certain countries only.
- Your staying details whether it be a hotel or any other place.
- If you have a small child who does not have an ID card with you then you need to scan his birth certificate as well.
A very important point that is to be considered is that you have to enter the country within the dates of the e-visa. The duration of the Malaysia e-visa is just 90 days and the time at which you can stay in the country on your e-visa is 30 days. But a good thing is that people from most of the countries can apply multiple times for this visa.
When you have all the documents complete you can go to the website of the Malaysian immigration and apply for your Malaysia e-visa. The amount of time it takes for your visa is different depending on the option you choose. Typically it about 6 days for the visa to process but there are instant or rush visa applications you can apply for which will process your request in 4 and even 2 days only. These days are counted in the business days only.
The Malaysian visa is not that difficult to get if you complete all the documentation required. In very few cases even in e-visa, the Malaysian government can ask you for an interview as well. It is a very common spot for students as well as tourists as the living costs like food and inhabitation are very affordable. Therefore many people prefer the Malaysian visa and especially the e-visa is quite feasible for many people.
