The eVISA facility is given for Single Entry Visa (SEV) only. Multiple Entry Visa (MEV) applications still need to be applied for manually at the nearest Immigration Attache Office/Embassy of Malaysia.
Following the reactivation of the MYVISA system on 22 October 2022, the Immigration Department of Malaysia (JIM) has shared the important aspects to note when applying through the system.
The following categories are eligible to apply for visa through the MYVISA system (eVISA):
- Citizens from 34 countries that require a visa to enter Malaysia,
- International students including dependents/companions,
- Expatriates under all agencies including dependents and foreign helpers (maids)
- Medical tourist including dependents/companions under Malaysia Healthcare Travel Programme (MHTP) by Malaysia Healthcare Travel Council (MHTC),
- Foreign workers.
The 34 markets that require a visa to enter Malaysia, and are eligible to apply for eVISA facility, are as shown below:
It should be noted that the eVISA facility is given for Single Entry Visa (SEV) only. Multiple Entry Visa (MEV) applications still need to be applied for manually at the nearest Immigration Attache Office/Embassy of Malaysia.
Visa applications (both eVISA and manually) can be made individually or through the appointed Malaysia Visa Application Processing Agency (APPVM). Similarly, visa applications for foreign workers can only be made through the appointed Malaysia Visa Application Processing Agency.
Those whose eVISA have been approved, but have not received the approval notification/are unable able to print the eVISA note, should contact the MYVISA live chat to obtain the eVISA note.
Those who have made payment for an eVISA application but have not received the result of the application should contact the live chat as well. If that application is yet to be processed, they will be advised to make a new application at no extra charge. Having completed the new application, they should once again contact the live chat.
The live chat operates 24/7.
