Malaysian autogate entry has been available for Malaysian passport holders for many years now and their use has recently been made available for Permanent Residents and Long Term Pass holders. Since 1st December 2023, passport holders of ten countries may also use this facility for entry at both Terminals of Kuala Lumpur International Airport, KLIA. Prior registration is required three days before entry using the Malaysia Digital Arrival Card (MDAC).
Registering for Malaysian autogate entry
Visitors from 10 countries will be eligible to use autogates when arriving and leaving KLIA’s Terminal 1 or Terminal 2. The countries on the initial list are:
- South Korea
- New Zealand
- Saudi Arabia
- United States
- United Kingdom
To use the autogates at KLIA for immigration clearance, visitors must:
- have passports with a validity period of six months or more
- submit the MDAC three days before arrival
- not required for permanent residents and long-term pass holders
Visitors will not be able to use the autogate on the first visit, despite submitting the MDAC three days before arriving, as the documents must be verified at the manual counter by Immigration personnel although it may be used for departure. The autogates can only be used for subsequent arrival and departure if their enrolment in the scheme is successful.
MDAC must be submitted three days before every visit to Malaysia.
To register and submit MDAC, travellers must use the Immigration Department’s website.
