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.

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 its own specific needs and must not be confused with this process which is only for 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 permit you 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.
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.
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 can 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. People can 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, the lush green lands of Malaysian Borneo is a treat for any nature-lover. Sabah boasts of a world-class diving experience. Mt Kinabalu is the country’s highest peak. The pace here is less hurried and you can enjoy your stay much better.
