Malaysia visa scams and fake agents to be aware of
There are hundreds of websites for Malaysia visa and most of these are there to scam you. They make the promise of getting your visa approved and take money for that. Once you transfer the money, they simply disappear.
No website or agent should ask for more than 10-25% of the total visa fee, initially. You only have to pay the rest, once your visa gets approved. Your agent will provide you with a visa identification number. You can use this number to check the status of your visa on the official government website.
You can trust the following two websites for your Malaysia eVISA:
evisamalaysia.in (This Malaysia visa expert asks for 10% of the visa fee at the time of application. This site will guide you from the start to the end of the process. You have to pay the remaining fee after visa approval.)
windowmalaysia.my (The Malaysia government website for visas. The problem with this site is that it crashes too often. Also, there is no guidance offered, leading to frequent visa rejections.)
We request you to avoid all other websites as it is difficult to differentiate the fake ones.

You can rely on us as far as your Malaysia visa is concerned. We can help getting your visa approved and you do not have to worry about making any bookings in advance as well.
Having confirmed flight and hotel bookings is crucial for Malaysia visa approval. However, at the same time, having these does not confirm visa approval.
If your visa request gets rejected, you will have to bear heavy cancellation charges. This is the reason why people opt for our services. We can help in making arrangement for temporary flight and hotel bookings.
Worry not, as these are accepted by the Malaysian embassy. We will use this for the application of your visa. Once, your visa gets approved, you can make your own bookings.
Here are the steps that you need to follow:
Step 1: Visit our website for Malaysia eVISA. Now take the cursor on ‘Buy Malaysia Visa & INR 2,800‘ and click on it.
Step 2: On the new page that you are redirected to, you will have to choose your ‘visa type‘. Choose your visa type and scroll down to find the application form.
Please note that it is not necessary to make the right choice here. We can always correct it later.
Step 3: Now fill the form with the correct details. Our agent will call you to take you through the process. You will need to make 10% of the total payment now.
Pay the rest only after your visa gets approved. If you are, however, intending to travel in the next 7 days, you will have to pay the entire visa fee at the time of visa application. This is in accordance with the Malaysia visa policy.
You can also apply on the official Malaysia visa website.
Documents required for a Malaysia eVISA or an eNTRI visa from Tokyo, Japan
The documents that Indian citizens need to submit for a Malaysia eVISA are same as that of an eNTRI visa:
Your passport which needs to have a validity of at least 6 months. Also, ensure that your passport has a minimum of two empty pages.
A scanned copy of your recent passport-sized photograph. The dimensions of the image should be 35mm x 50mm and its size should not be more than 2MB. It needs to be either in the JPG format or in the PNG format.
This is something that you need to be careful about. Many Malaysia visa requests get rejected as people upload images with incorrect dimensions. If you are availing our services, our in-house graphic designers will make the necessary changes.
Even in that case, we request you to be as close to the specifications as possible.
You need to upload a scanned copy of your passport’s first page. The size of this document should not exceed 2MB and it should also be in the PNG or JPG format.
You need to scan the last page of your passport as well. The requirements for this document remains same as above.
The page of your passport that shows your last international travel details also needs to be scanned and uploaded.
Confirmed round-trip flight tickets that mention the dates of entry and exit to and from Malaysia. This needs to be in the PDF format.
This is where our services come into play. You do not have to worry about making early bookings and losing your money, in the events your visa gets rejected. We have trusted travel agents who will book your flight tickets to and from Malaysia. These can be used for applying for a Malaysia eVISA.
