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 will then pay the full amount only once your visa has been approved. The agent will provide you with a visa identification number and you can use this to verify your visa on the government website.
We recommend the following two websites that you can trust:
evisamalaysia.in (One of the cheapest options that you have. Pay 10% of the visa fees now and pay the rest after your visa gets approved.)
windowmalaysia.my (Through the government, over 23% of visas have been rejected since the online mode is very strict, difficult to navigate and frequent crashes.)
Try not to book from any other website, as the chances of getting cheated will be higher.
