Are you an Indian in Canada planning a trip to Malaysia? If yes is your answer, then this article will be really helpful for you. Here, we will talk about a Malaysia eVISA.
Malaysia is a popular tourist destination with beautiful beaches, national parks, sophisticated malls, and much more. Canadians do not need a visa to enter Malaysia for tourism purposes. This is the reason why many permanent residents in the country think that even they do not need a visa to enter Malaysia.
However, whether you need a visa to enter Malaysia or not depends on your nationality. Here, in this article, we will talk about whether Indian nationals need a visa to enter Malaysia and if they need, how they can get one.
We received close to 204 visa applications from Indians living in Canada during the last month. We will tell how you can apply for the same.
Do Indians living in Canada need a visa to enter Malaysia? Can they apply for the same from Canada?
Indians, in general, do need to apply for a visa to enter Malaysia. Likewise, Indians living in Canada will also need a visa to enter the country. Only Canadian citizens do not need to apply for a visa for a trip to Malaysia.
You have the option of Malaysia visa-on-arrival. However, on-arrival visas are expensive and you will have to pay close to INR 7,000 per visa. This is way more than what you will need to pay if you get your visa before.
Still not convinced? You can apply for a Malaysia visa right from your home. All that you will need to do is fill the Malaysia eVISA application form.

Do you know there are hundreds of fake websites for Malaysia visas? Malaysia is a popular holiday destination and so you will find many agents out there waiting to scam you.

No agent should ask for more than 10-25% of the total visa fee at the time of application. You only have to pay the rest when you get your visa approved. You can check the status on the government website.
We recommend only two websites for Malaysia eVISA and they are:
