Avoid fake Malaysia visa agents and scams
There are many websites that you will come across while looking for your Malaysia visa. Well…most of these are fake and should be avoided.
No website or agent should ask for more than 10-25% of your visa fee, initially. You only have to pay the entire sum once your visa gets approved. The agent will provide you with a visa identification number. You can use this to verify your visa at the government website.
We recommend the following two websites that you can trust:
evisamalaysia.in (One of the cheapest option that you have. Pay 10% of the visa fees now and pay the rest after your visa gets approved.)
windowmalaysia.my (This is the official government website and you can trust it completely. However, the website crashes too often and the process is confusing, as there is no one to guide you, leading to visa rejections.)
Do not apply for your visa through any other website. You will surely end up losing your money.
