Although Indians could get Malaysia eVisa online with us from 2016, it took about 2 to 15 days to be approved and this was too slow for some eager travellers. Also, the cost was high.
But from April 2017, Malaysia eNTRI visa for Indians was introduced and Indians can now get a Malaysia eNTRI note(Arrival registration) and enter Malaysia for a period of 15 days.
Quick Update 2020:
Though the Government has announced about the visa-free policy for Indians in 2020, the Malaysia visa for Indians is not completely free. The Embassy has taken down the visa fee of INR 1000 for eNTRI visa but the convenience and processing charges still apply. Hence, INR 1900 has to be paid for the Malaysia eNTRI visa.
The main benefit of eNTRI visa is it will be approved the same day, usually within 1 to 2 hours and in the worst case, 2 days. Malaysia eNTRI visa can be used anytime within the next 3 months and it works for both tourism and visiting purpose.
First off, be careful of numerous websites which are online and promise to get you Malaysia visa and once you have completed the payment, disappear altogether.
Beware of Fake Malaysia visa agents and scams
Ideally, make an advance payment of say 10 to 25% before your visa is approved. Once your Malaysia visa is approved, agent will then provide you with your visa identification number which you can verify on the official government website and only then make full payment.
There are only two websites which we would recommend:
- evisamalaysia.in ( 10% payment , Malaysia visa experts, have a solid team and customer & chat support ,cheaper option )
- windowmalaysia.my (Official channel for Malaysia visa, poor implementation and frequent crashes, cheapest option, visa will be rejected if you do not know what to do)
Avoid all other websites which will only scam you of our money . Ideally speak to the travel agent and clear your doubts before you apply for visa.

Passport and Document Requirements: The applicant must have a passport that is at least valid for 6 months and a minimum of two pages in the passport need to be blank. This is for the entry and exit stamps.
Specific Photograph Requirements: One of the reasons for rejection of a Malaysia visa is that the photo details are not met. It is better to double check that you have the right photos before you send them in along with the application. The photographs must be professionally taken in a studio, cropped photos, selfies and scans are not allowed. It must be on a white background and without a border of any sort.

You will be required to send in details of your confirmed flights to Malaysia (including the E-Ticket number) in a PDF format. You need to send in details of your tickets out of Malaysia as well. In addition to this, send in your accommodation details in a PDF format for the entire duration of your stay in the country.
Financial Requirements: Showing proof of a certain amount in your bank account is common for many countries. In the case of Malaysia, it is true for those applicants who are applying for a fresh passport i.e. for those who have never traveled out of the country with that passport. The minimum balance required varies from 30,000 for an individual to 60,000 for the individual who is bearing all the expenses. You should double check before you apply.

Malaysia eNTRI Visa for Indians: How to Get the Application Right
In this article, we discuss the requirements of a tourist e-Visa or e-ENTRI. There are other processes involved in student visas or work visas or other immigration processes. Each has their own specific needs and must not be confused with this process which is only for the purpose of tourism. Here, we have studied and put together some crucial points to get this application right:
An E-Visa Permit: It is important to understand the features of the e-Visa. The e-Visa for Malaysia is only valid for those who are going to the country to experience the country as a tourist or if you wish to visit someone in the country. It does not give you permission to work in the country in any way and if found guilty of doing the same, the consequences can be severe. This type of visa is a single-entry visa which means that you cannot leave the country and re-enter with the same e-Visa, you will have to re-apply. This visa is also valid for 3 months from the date you get your visa and the maximum amount of time you can stay there for is 30 days using Malaysia eVisa.
You can read more about our Malaysia eVisa here.
Understand the Difference Between e-Visa and e-NTRI: The main difference between the two is the duration of stay. While the e-Visa allows the person to stay in Malaysia for at least 30 days, the Malaysia ENTRI visa for Indians only lets them stay for 15 days. Since 15 days may not be sufficient to sample all of what Malaysia has to offer, we suggest you take the 30-day eVisa and truly experience a slice of their Asia.
Go Through a Simple Immigration Procedure: Once you reach Malaysia, you will be required to go through immigration. If you have all your documents in order, this will be a fairly simple process. To avoid any last minute panic, have your Visa (eVisa/eNTRI), your boarding pass, travel funds (travelers’ cheques, cash, or cards), flight tickets back to India (confirmed) and your accommodation details in Malaysia. These are the main documents that you will be asked for and if you have them in a separate bag that is easy to reach rather than stuffed in with your main luggage, the process is bound to go smoother. On your way out, you will be asked to show your Visa document again.
Visa Aids: Besides the assistance of the Malaysian Visa website (which has a very handy Live Chat window) to make the process of applying to Malaysia easier. They also have a responsive customer care system to help applicants along. The easiest method of acquiring a Malaysia eNTRI visa for Indian Citizens has proven to be using a company that knows the Visa process well and knows exactly what needs to be done. From filling in the paperwork to arranging your stay, these companies are professionals at making your holiday as hassle-free as possible.
Visa Exemption: Nationals of certain countries do not require Visa to enter the country including those who hold passports of Australia, France, the USA, and the UK among others. These nationals are able to stay in the country for up to 90 days on a tourist basis. Those from Singapore, Malta, Greece and Russia have a 30-day permit. While those from Macau, Palestine, Libya and Iraq (among others) have a 14-day permit.
Sightseeing Doesn't Get Better than This
A feast for the taste buds: Malaysia’s Penang is said to be the country’s food capital and people are able to sample delicacies from street food to high-end gastronomical fusions. Most places do not list pork on the menu as the country has a large Muslim population and this is against their religion.
A feast for the Eyes: From the colorful skyscrapers of Kuala Lumpur and Penang to the lush green lands of Malaysian Borneo are a treat for any nature-lover. Sabah boasts of a world-class diving experience and Mt Kinabalu is the country’s highest peak. The pace here is less hurried and you are able to enjoy your stay much better.
