Planning a trip to Malaysia? Know whether you will need to apply for a visa to enter the country and you can apply for a Malaysia eVISA from the UAE.
A trip to Malaysia for anyone living in the UAE will be refreshing. The lush green forests of Taman Negara will be a pleasant break from the barren deserts. But that is not the only thing that Malaysia has in store for you. From beaches to amusement parks, it offers all.
We received 77 visa requests from Indians living in the UAE. We processed their visa requests and helped them in getting their visas approved. Here, in this article, we will tell you how.
Do you need a visa to enter Malaysia? Can you apply for a visa from the UAE?
Yes, Indians do need a visa to enter Malaysia. You can opt for the Malaysia visa-on-arrival. But you will have to pay almost INR 7,000 per visa and this is way more than what you will have to pay for a Malaysia eVISA.
However, there is nothing that you need to worry about. You do not have to travel all way to India to apply for your Malaysia visa. You also do not have to visit an embassy. You can apply for a Malaysia eVISA right from home.

Malaysia visa scams and fake Malaysia visa agents
While looking for a Malaysia visa online, you will come across many websites claiming Malaysia visa services. Well…most of these websites are fake and are just there to scam you.
No, visa website or agent should ask for more than 10-25% of the total visa fee at the time of application. You only pay the rest after your visa gets approved. You can check that on the official government website.
You can trust the following two websites:
evisamalaysia.in (This Malaysia visa website guides you through the entire process. You pay 10% of the visa fee now and pay the rest after checking the status of your visa online.)
windowmalaysia.my (This is the Malaysian government channel for application of a visa. The problem with this website is that it crashes often. Also, it offers no guidance to people applying for a Malaysia visa for the first time.)
It is an earnest request to avoid all other websites. They are just there to fool naive tourists.
