Malaysia is a beautiful country and also happens to be a popular holiday destination. If you are in Australia and planning a trip to this country, you are at the right place. Here, we will talk about the Malaysia eVISA that you can apply from Australia.
Malaysia as a country attracts people from all over the world. It has beaches, it has national parks, it has shopping malls and everything else that you can ask for a perfect vacation.
We received around 64 visa applications from Indians living in Australia for Malaysia. We will tell you how you can apply for yours.
Do you need a visa to enter Malaysia for tourism purposes? Can you apply for it from Australia?
If you are an Indian, you will need a visa to enter Malaysia. And yes, you can apply it from Australia itself.
You do have the option of Malaysia visa-on-arrival. However, you will have to pay close to INR 7,000 per visa in this case. If you apply for a Malaysia eVISA online, you will have to pay half of that amount.
We will help you in this regard. To start with, you will have to fill an online application form. We will take care of the rest.

Beware of fake Malaysia websites and agents
Do you know that there are many fake Malaysia visa agents and websites? And the worst part? It is difficult to recognise them.
These agents scam you, take your information and money, and disappear. That is why it is really important that you apply for your Malaysia visa from the right place.
No agent should ask for more than 10-25% of the total visa fee at the time of application. You need to pay the total amount only after your visa gets approved.
We will recommend the following two websites online:
evisamalaysia.in (Here, you need to pay 10% of the visa fee initially and pay the rest after visa approval. The best part of applying through this website is the fact that you will complete guidance from the experts.)
windowmalaysia.my (Though the official government, it crashes too often. Also the interface is not very user-friendly.)
Avoid all other websites that claim of being genuine.
