Beware of Fake Malaysia visa agents and scams

First off, be careful of 10s of websites which are online and promise to get you Malaysia visa and once you have completed the payment, disappear all together.

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.

But is it a good idea to get Malaysia visa on Arrival ? Particularly, when it is cheaper, easier and more safe to get your Malaysia visa before you plan your travel ?

Why is it not a good idea to get Malaysia visa on Arrival ?

Indians can now get Malaysia eVISA or Malaysia eNTRI visa at the comfort of their home. In fact, we have helped process over 1 lakh Malaysia eVISAs last year.

All one needs to do is submit us a well captured photograph of their passport and a photo of them standing against a plain white background (even iPhone or similar quality camera pic will do)  and we can get their visa approved within the next 2 days

The reasons to avoid getting Malaysia visa on Arrival is :

  • The cost. Malaysian government charges you USD 100 (RM 330) for each visa whereas the cost for normal online visa with us is less than half of that.
  • Single Entry. Once you exit Malaysia, your visa gets expired. But what if you want to extend your trip ? Or visit back next month to soak in the beauty of this wonderful country ? You will need to apply for your eVISA once more.
  • Only 7 days stay allowed. You are allowed to stay in Malaysia only for 7 days. Even the cheapest Malaysia online visa allows you to stay for at least 15 days.
  • Complications. You need to have a valid visa from either Singapore, Indonesia or Thailand to be eligible for visa on arrival.
  • Queue. Believe us when we say the queue is huge . You need to wait for at least 2 hours to get your visa since the queue is that long.

Hence, make use of visa on arrival in only emergency cases.

When should Indian passport holders apply for Malaysia eVISA ?

This will also ensure that you have enough time to account for delays in your eVISA processing by the malaysia consulate.But you can apply even one week to 3 days before departure. Since Malaysia eVISA/ eNTRI visa can be got within 2 working days at most. But this is risky and not recommended at all.

What is the difference between Malaysia eNTRI visa & Malaysia eVisa ?

As this table suggests, the only reason to go for Malaysia eVisa over Malaysia eNTRI visa is when you want to explore Malaysia for more than 15 days . If you are staying for less than 15 days then it is better to go for Malaysia eNTRI visa since it is cheaper by INR 1000 at least. But if your days are not fixed, it is better to apply for Malaysia eVisa.

How long does it take to get Malaysia eVisa or Malaysia eNTRI visa from you ?

Malaysia eVISA/eNTRI takes 2 working days. The process is influenced by holidays in both India as well as Malaysia. The 2 days is calculated from the day that we acknowledge you that we have applied for your visa.
